Wrapper: Connecticut Seed Ecuadorian Shade Grown
The Rocky Patel Serie .789 Hook was blended exclusively for Burn and Tobacco Grove and sold by them. The Hook is a medium-bodied smoke with a Connecticut Seed Ecuadorian Shade Grown wrapper that encloses a Nicaraguan binder and filler. The first draw of this cigar is lite and smooth with a sweet, creamy flavor that has a slight amount of peppery spice that doesn’t over power. The aroma is woody and the initial burn is a little jagged which eventually evens out at the midpoint of the cigar. Mid way through the sweetness is still there with flavors of nutmeg, wood, and spice coming on. Then just before the finish the peppery flavor kicks in. The finish shows the sweetness dieing out which turns into hints of burnt wheat and darker wood flavor with a little bit of harshness. Overall the Hook is a great medium-bodied cigar with excellent flavor that didn’t disappoint for a brand new cigar line.
