Altadis U.S.A has proudly released the Henry Clay Warhawk cigars, a unique line extension to this Cuban Heritage brand that pays tribute to the famous 1800’s Speaker of the House whose hawkish ideology led to the War of 1812. The Warhawk cigar is appropriately named, as it rebelliously breaks its own tradition by not using the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper found on the original Henry Clay line. However, the same could be said for the Henry Clay Honduran, another daring line extension that uses a Nicaraguan leaf for its cover to appeal to the more contemporary smoker. That said, Henry Clay Warhawk replaces the classic Connecticut Broadleaf with a gorgeous, rich-tasting, blonde Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. The above-mentioned Broadleaf tobacco is now used for the binder, that covers a top-quality blend of perfectly aged Honduran long-fillers.
Available in a 5 x 44 Corona, a 5x 54 Robusto, and a 6 x50 Toro, every Henry Clay Warhawk cigar is elegantly dual banded and appointed to nostalgic looking slide-top cedar boxes of 25, emblazoned with the eye-catching Warhawk brand logo.
Widely considered a medium-bodied blend, the versatile Warhawk cigar is rife with well-refined flavors of toasted almonds, earth, cocoa, some sweetness, and enough pepperiness on the backend to appeal to experienced smokers, without being too overpowering for newcomers.
