Apr 26th 2012 - Hammer and Sickle Moscow City
Today brings us the Hammer and Sickle Moscow City in a 6x54 Toro vitola. 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. That alone says how great of a cigar this is. It's a spicy, chocolately, peppery, earthty and woody cigar with coffee notes throughout. I chose this to be today's cigar because it was on this day in 1986 that the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant disaster occurred.
