Rated 92 - Voted #22 Cigar Aficionado Top 25 Cigars Of 2016!
The Henry Clay Stalk Cut was named after the unique tobacco process of stalk-cutting. Rather than the typical method of harvesting leaves, with stalk-cutting the entire tobacco plant is chopped at the base and hung by its stalk to cure in a barn, allowing the tobacco’s natural sugars and nutrients to concentrate in the leaves, producing deeply rich flavors.
In the Henry Clay Stalk Cut’s impressive tobacco blend, a 2012 vintage Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper covers a 2010 Vintage Dominican Piloto binder, and 2012 Vintage Dominican Olor, 2012 Vintage Dominican Piloto, and 2013 Vintage Nicaraguan Criollo tobaccos. This careful combination of leaves produces a full-bodied smoking experience that weaves a tapestry of warm tasting notes including coffee bean, deep earth, dark chocolate, leather, and spices.
Once ignored by all but die-hard cigar enthusiasts, the classic Henry Clay brand has been thrust back to its rightful place in the spotlight thanks to the mouth-watering maduro magic of the Henry Clay Stalk Cut.
These caught my eye - never had a Stalk Cut. It was an interesting smoke, started out on the mild to medium side of the scale and progressed toward the medium to full side. All in all good flavor, great draw and an enjoyable experience. It was to the lighter side of what I usually smoke.
