Henry Clay was a brand that used to gather dust on store shelves, being bought by die-hard fans of the cigar but attracting few new customers. Henry Clay fan Pete Johnson, of Tatuaje cigars, helped breathe fresh life into the brand with his collaboration, Henry Clay Tattoo. Following closely on the heels of this exciting new addition comes Henry Clay Stalk Cut, exhibiting the bolder side of the old brand.
Henry Clay Stalk Cut was crafted by the famous blending team, the Grupo de Maestros, and uses a stalk cut wrapper. With stalk cutting, the tobacco plant is cut at the stalk and is hung intact in a curing barn. This allows the leaves to continue to draw nutrients from the stalk and provides an earthier and deeper flavor. Full-bodied and with a take no prisoners flavor profile, this handmade contains all vintage tobaccos. A 2012 Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper blankets a 2010 Dominican piloto binder over long-fillers consisting of 2012 Dominican piloto and olor and 2013 Nicaraguan criollo. Luxurious and complex, you’ll be met with flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate, coffee, earth, and leather leading to a rollercoaster ride for your palate. Try Henry Clay Stalk Cut and witness the rebirth of this legendary brand.
Henry Clay Stalk Cut has been rated as high as a 92-rating and given Top 25 Cigars of 2016 honors. Previous reviews noted, "Enrobed in an alluringly oily wrapper, this cigar is rolled with an uncut foot and a flat head. Toasty, cedary notes are matched by a rich almond and marzipan finish."
