Tasting Note: Altadis U.S.A. has revitalized this once sleepy cigar line, bestowing new packaging and a great blend on the heritage line. It started when Altadis collaborated with Tatuaje to make a one-off project called Henry Clay Tattoo. This sparked new interest in Henry Clay and Altadis took advantage of the buzz by creating the Henry Clay Stalk Cut. The name refers to the harvesting method for the aged broadleaf wrapper found on this cigar. Stalk cutting is the process in which the entire broadleaf tobacco plant is chopped at the base and hung by its stalk to cure in a barn. Altadis says that the wrapper is from a 2012 harvest and has vintage dated all the tobacco in the blend. The Dominican components are from 2012, the Nicaraguan tobacco from 2013. Each rich, ripe cigar is box pressed and rustically finished with an uncut foot.

Enrobed in an alluringly oily wrapper, this cigar is rolled with an uncut foot and flat head. Toasty, cedary notes are matched by a rich almond and marzipan finish.
