Henry Clay Stalk Cut cigars were 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.
