The company has also announced that the going forward the 7-20-4 Hustler will be a regular production cigar. In the press release for the Dog Walker, Kendall commented, “The dapper rogue on the original 1890’s box label and its two-tone ‘barber pole’ wrapper have proven strong enough incentives to draw smokers to try our Hustler boutique cigar. A stack of back-orders have convinced us to add them to our portfolio.”
The 7-20-4 Hustler in the toro size scored a 94 on Cigar Coop this past December. The Hustler, including the new Dog Walker size will be fully available nationwide this August.
In terms of the Hustler, Kendall commented in the recent press release that the smoke is “Medium-bodied, with the spiral wrapper providing a visual emphasis to its swirl of complex flavors and aroma.”
