7-20-4 "Dog Walker" Review

7-20-4 "Dog Walker". 4 1/4 X 40. Wrapper - Brazilian Mata Fina, Binder - Costa Rica, Filler - Nicaragua, Honduras, Mexican & Colombian. Medium bodied.

Because this is a small cigar, I decided to break it down in halves instead of thirds.

Initial taste - Nice blast of black pepper & cedar.

First Half - Black pepper, cedar, leather and a nice hint of cocoa. Very good balance.

Second Half - The black pepper now becomes more of a spice along with leather, cedar and a very pleasant and interesting floral flavor. Marvellous complexity. Very nice long finish of spice & leather.

Construction, burn and draw were excellent - nice tight light-gray ash that held on.

I was very impressed with this cigar - it had excellent balance and complexity. Plenty of flavor. A fantastic little cigar for a short smoke or for...well... walking your dog. MSRP on this vitola is $5.50 which makes this cigar a great value in my opinion. Absolutely recommend.
