The Hammer & Sickle Moscow City Robusto Extra Maduro (5 5/8" x 54) is a handmade medium-full bodied cigar crafted at the famed TabaDom Factory in the Dominican Republic. This beauty is covered by a beautiful, dark yet sweet Maduro wrapper which provides a smooth smoke after every puff every single time. Very few manufacturers use this wrapper which is both rare and high end. The Moscow City is hand packed in a molded pewter box which adorns the brand's icon, the famed St. Basil's Cathedral.
A very good smoke with a lot of bold flavor. The draw is very good and the flavor is consistent throughout. The box and band presentation is second to none. However, there were some issues with my batch, but nothing that significantly detracts from the quality of the smoke. There were several wrapper imperfections observed throughout, with several nicked and some unravelling before removed from the packaging. These could have used some time in the humidor, but some of the wrappers were already beyond anything a humidor could have helped. This was disappointing given the price and the overall quality of the smoke itself. Hopefully, this was just in my specific box.
