Feb 24th 2012 - Hammer and Sickle Moscow City

Today brings us the Hammer and Sickle Moscow City in a 6x54 Toro vitola. The Hammer and Sickle line started as a life style brand in 2005 and their vodka hit the market in 2007. Their Tradicion Serie line hit the cigar market in 2009. The Moscow City is a limited production cigar that they brought out I believe in 2010. I'm finding some conflicting information on the blend. On the H&S site it says that it is a 100% Connecticut Broadleaf blend but everywhere else I'm reading that it has a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, with a Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican. Regardless of the blend it was done by legendary master blender Henke Kelner of Davidoff so you know it will be something special. You'll get a spicy, chocolately, peppery, earthty and woody cigar with coffee notes throughout. I chose this today to celebrate what would have been the 44th birthday of one of my favorite comedians Mitch Hedberg. Mitch was very unique in how he delivered his jokes and his great one liners. Thanks for all the great laughs Mitch.
