The creative minds at the famous Altadis USA factory in conjunction with renowned cigar blender Pete Johnson have put a modern spin on a great old classic. Henry Clay is a storied brand that has been around for ages and still has a loyal following, but Mr. Johnson with the assistance of the “A” team, makers of such dandies as Montecristo, H.Upmann, and Romeo, decided it needed a new coat of paint. Therefore, they designed the Henry Clay Tattoo!
Tattoo is a very special 2015 limited edition smoke, and a temporary departure from Pete’s Tatuaje brands made by the García family’s factories in Miami and Estelí. Revamped from the ground up in both blend and packaging, he chose to maintain its rustic look with a pig-tailed cap and bundle pressed shape.
Today’s Clay is handmade in the Dominican Republic with a 2010 USA Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, a 2010 Dominican Piloto Cubano binder, and fillers from Dominican Republic and Nicaragua's Ometepe region.
Tattoo is medium to full bodied in character, and laden with deep spice, leather, nuts, and earthy Cubanesque flavors. Seasoned veterans of the original brand, along with present-day connoisseurs will find the Henry Clay Tattoo a very outstanding smoke.
