Classic cigar at a great price.
I enjoy trying lots of different cigars because of the fun of discovery. I have smoked cigars on and off for about 40 years. I discovered Henry Clay in the 90's and I always come back to these uniquely flavored railroad spikes. They aren't quite as rustic looking as they were back then, but the flavor has been pretty consistent. I can't say they taste the same as they did in the Mid 1800's or when literary giants like James Joyce and Rudyard Kipling made reference to the brand. Who knows? Maybe they are even better. I love a full bodied, full flavored smoke and even though I prefer larger ring sizes than these, they never fail to satisfy. They rival anything in their price range and I prefer them to many higher priced smokes. An hour with a Henry Clay is always a worthy adventure.

Buy these!
I hadn't had these in years and most places don't even carry them anymore. It was definitely a pleasant blast from the past as the mellow, smooth, flavorful smoke flowed effortlessly from my mouth.

Looks ugly, tastes great!
A very mild and simple smoke. Slow-burning. No aftertaste.
Customer Testimonials
Folks, this is a good one, a "sleeper" my local vendor called them. I've been smoking them for 15+ years and they are always good. I can't remember getting a plugged or side burning stick. The flavor is excellent. They should submit some to Cigar Aficionado for a review.
A Henry Clay cigar tastes the way it looks: it is a straightforward, unpretentious, old-fashioned slow burner. Pepper, coffee, and earth notes are present along with the Connecticut Broadleaf's long, sweet finish, but its defining note for me, which I've detected in very few other cigars, is a slight underpinning of saltiness. Henry Clay is the smoke that made me finally understand the term "leathery," and I still think it earns that descriptor more than any other cigar out there. The 5.50 x 42 Breva is my go-to stick when I want a medium-bodied (but full-flavored!) corona, and the 6.50 x 48 Breva Fina, which starts off a little gentler and takes its time building up, is a great way to kill an hour and a half on a Sunday afternoon.
In my opinion the Henry Clay Breva ala Conserva is a great smoke. I wish more manufactures would forget about being trendy and instead focus on making cigars like this. Not too much power (but definitely some), nuanced flavors, a reasonable ring gauge, great burn and draw. Just a delight to smoke. I will be smoking more of these for sure.
Fantastic cigar for the price! These bad boys will wake you up, my buddies and I refer to them as a "breakfast" cigar. Not a pretty cigar but well constructed with a nice flavor!
Bought a 5 pack of the Corona's and was pleasantly surprised. I smoked these right down to my finger tips. Great cigar at an amazing price! I will purchase a box of these in the future. They could be my new go to cigar. Don't let the price fool you, these cigars are outstanding with a great flavor and medium to full body.
One of my all time favorites. Have been smoking them for 20+ years and always have a box or two aging in the humidor. I love the toothy rugged wrapper and peppery taste. This cigar is a classic at a excellent price point
Remember how great the older cigars used to be? Well, Henry Clays still are. This is a basic, well-constructed, and delicious old timer. Great taste, good pull, dark grey and white ash. I smoked this one til' my fingers burned, with no bitterness. They just don't get much better than this and for the price, it's a great deal. Enjoy with coffee or an adult beverage any time. Some of these will always be in my humidor. Thanks CI ---------
Some of the best cigars I've ever had. Rich, dense, balanced. Burns for a very long time - taste is phenominal.
I don't know about all the reviews that say these are rather mangy looking, mine are always caramel hued and look fantastic. They also taste great with a sweet flavor, earthy and just a bit spicey. This cigar is an underated gem.
Best bang for your buck period. Great rich flavor. Not 100% consistant in my opinion. 3/5 times you'll get an exellent flavor like the smell of a rich burning wood and hay which spices the palate just right in my book. The other 2/5 times you'll end up with a good cigar worth the $4 you'll pay for it in the stores (and a steal with CI's deals) but all in all a disappointment when compaired to the perfection of the Henry Clay at its best. Its not a fancy cigar and doesn't try to come off as one. If you only smoke cigars for the look then by all means go buy a $15 cigar and tell people how rich you are or wish you were but, if you;re the common working man who bites the back off his cigars and chomps down on it as he gets down to business but still demands great flavor, than this cigar is your ticket.
Pleasurable, consistent, great smoke. There is always more than one in my Humidor.
I've only just smoked my second HC, so I hesitate to rush to judgement. But I have to say that this is a very smooth operator! I could taste some earthiness, leather and something else pleasant that I couldn't quite give a name to. Try this cigar. You will not be dissappointed.
I like to sample alot of diffent cigars, But I always come back to Henry Clay. Not very flashy, but taste is what counts,and Henry Clay delivers consistantly.
Nothing comes close to the Henry Clay. It's a Dominican, but will knock over almost any Honduran, Nicaraguan, or - ahem! - Cuban cigar it meets. This is as close as you can legally get to the "old Cuban" flavor - rich, complex, earthy, with a perfect body. It produces a creamy, gentle, aromatic smoke that lingers as long as you care to allow it, and the ash is speckled and fine. You'll find an occasional construction slip-up, but these are magnificent works of art, and my every day favorite.
The Hank Clay is one of the most under-rated cigars out there now. It is the only 'good' peppery cigar I ever had. The Toro is the best size if you can find them, but all sizes are equally tasty. Probably the best 'cheap' stick currently available.
Want a really fine cigar? Buy these (Henry Clay). Now.
The Henry Clay is a flavorful smoke with a power that belies it's Dominican origin. It has an evil looking Broadleaf wrapper that adds an extra dimension to the taste.If you drink your coffee black,you should like this stick
