A Hammer and Sickle in a velvet glove...
The Hammer and Sickle Tradicion is the epitome of smoothness and elegance. This cigar sports a remarkably silky Connecticut Shade wrapper that has been aging for five full years. Underneath the blonde capa lies a very special blend of select Dominican long-fillers that have been resting for three years. The dominant notes in the flavor profile are leather and sweet wood, supported by hints of citrus and a touch of white pepper, all in a harmoniously creamy package. Despite being on the modest side of medium-bodied, the cigar is amazingly complex and satisfying, enough so that even fans of much stronger cigars will find it appealing.
The presentation, from the Soviet-era themed bands to the gorgeous hand-crafted etched glass box, is a delight, with a class and style that perfectly match the tantalizing flavor of the cigar.
This just in - Hammer and Sickle Tradicion has been named one of the Top 25 Cigars of 2015 (#11), and has received a well-justified 94 rating!
