Hammer & Sickle Berlin Wall No. 22 Deluxe Criollo Robusto Cigar Review
This 4.75×46 stick features a golden tan wrapper with a soft satin pack and feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap and rich wood & hay aroma. First light reveals a loose draw with plenty of rich medium bodied smoke showing flavors of a smooth oily sweet cream with a slight tobacco core and long finish of the same. The first third pours off the smoke and flavor bringing the body to medium-full showing a big sweet cream, leather and wood that lasts well until the next draw. Construction is perfect with a great burn. The 1/2 way point comes at 35 minutes adding a bit of strength and toning down the leather and cream to just a tobacco earth and wood with a bit of black pepper on the tail end of the finish. Ending at an hour, the last bit showed no further transitions until it got hot with an inch remaining. Thank you very much to viewer Scott for sending this in for review!
