Rustic Cheroot is a robust cigar that follows in the traditions set by the previous Henry Clay Tattoo and Henry Clay Stalk Cut releases. “Cheroot” is a long-running cigar term, often referring to a smaller, thinner cigar featuring two open ends. The Henry Clay Rustic Cheroot is a modern iteration of this classic variety, with the serviceable addition of a pigtail cap and closed foot. Rustic Cheroot cigars are meticulously made using a broadleaf wrapper and binder, and a specially selected blend of filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. Typically known as Capa Dura, this special blend is derived using only the finest ”reborn” tobacco leaves, producing a rich, stronger blend, with an exceptionally rustic complexity of flavor.
A complex blend, boasting unique flavors, with plenty of spice. Henry Clay rose to Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the early 1800s, and was known above all, as a staunch U.S. nationalist. Clay believed strongly that military force was the only option left to fight British imperiousness. The term “War Hawk” was coined and now used in political circles to describe one who favors war as an ultimate resolution of a conflict. The Henry Clay “War Hawk” is a dedication to Henry Clay’s lasting influence. The War Hawk cigar is aptly named, as it is a bit rebellious in going against its own tradition by not using a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper – as do most other Henry Clay brands. The “Hawkish” cigar is a complex blend, boasting unique flavors, with plenty of spice.
A handmade classic previously crafted in the Havana factory rendered on the box, and now crafted in the Dominican Republic, the smokes present a smooth, medium-bodied flavor and aroma that makes Henry Clay a favorite of experienced smokers.
