Named in honor of one of America’s first great statesmen, Henry Clay cigars have existed in some shape or form since the 1840s and the name still resonates with cigar connoisseurs today. From literature to motion pictures, Henry Clay cigars have been front and center as a part of pop culture. And there is no Henry Clay more deserving of the spotlight than the exuberant Henry Clay Stalk Cut Toro.
Stalk cutting is a process by which tobacco stalks are removed as a whole and allowed to cure, ensuring that each tobacco leaf retains as much nutrients and natural oils as is possible. And this particularly rich blend is crafted around 2012 vintage Dominican Olar, 2012 Dominican Piloto and 2013 Nicaraguan filler tobaccos which are paired with a 2012 Dominican Piloto binder leaf and 2012 Dark Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
The result of these fantastically rich and lively tobaccos is a 6” x 54 gem that offers up an amazingly broad spectrum of pepper, cocoa, leather and espresso flavors that extend a full hour or so from first light to gratifying finish with sweet and spicy nuances teasing along the way.
A wonderfully robust smoke for only the most adventurous of cigar enthusiasts, the Henry Clay Stalk Cut Toro is like no other cigar on the market today and is a full-bodied delight that is all the proof you will need of just why Henry Clay cigars continue to fascinate.
