Quick Smoke: Hammer + Sickle Moscow City

23 Jan 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Like the original Hammer + Sickle, this Connecticut broadleaf-wrapped maduro is crafted by Davidoff master blender Henke Kelner and features Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. Only 10,000 cigars were made, packaged in black crystal ten-count boxes. The thick toro (6 x 54) is perfectly constructed. The flavors are a classic full-bodied maduro, with coffee, wood, and earth. As such, the line is a radical departure from almost everything else blended by Kelner. Even if Moscow City is a bit pricey at over $10 each, it’s an interesting smoke worth a try, particularly for those who enjoy full-bodied maduro cigars.

Verdict = Buy.

    Interesting review. I liked the original Hammer & Sickle, so I'm excited about this maduro smoke. If it's anything like the Davidoff maduro, I'm going to want to go out and smoke one of these.

    I also liked the original H+S, but I had no idea they had another blend.

    I didn't realize that the Hammer&Sickle brand was blended by Davidoff's Kelner! Thanks!
