Cigar Review: Hammer + Sickle Moscow City
The first draw on the Hammer + Sickle Moscow City Toro was every easy and with almost no resistance. The flavors are leafy and… something I can't quite place, something like a cleaning chemical. The wrapper is dark and dry. After smoking about one third of the cigar, the flavors are about the same, and I don't love them. The draw is easy, the taste is a little harsh, but the burn is pretty consistent. I suspect this cigar needs another year in the humidor to age.

I didn't like the Hammer + Sickle Moscow City. The flavors weren't great, and I was ready to finish it about half way through. The cigar's burn was even and the draw was consistent, no rough patches, but overall the Hammer + Sickle Moscow City was unimpressive.
For the price, I would've liked a cigar with more and better flavors and that didn't taste like it was fresh from the grass fields. I give the Hammer + Sickle Moscow City a CigarScore of 2 for these reasons and because I would not smoke this cigar again.
