Following the successful launch of last year’s Henry Clay War Hawk, Altadis is adding a limited-edition offshoot called Henry Clay War Hawk Rebellious that they created with Nicaraguan cigarmaker A.J. Fernandez.

While the 2019 Henry Clay War Hawk was rolled in Honduras with a blend of tobaccos from three different countries, Rebellious will use only Nicaraguan tobacco and is being made by Fernandez in Nicaragua. It’s covered in a Habano-seed wrapper that Altadis says was from a “very rare vintage.”

Rolled in only one size, a 6 inch by 54 ring gauge toro, Rebellious is just a bit thicker than the 89-point War Hawk Toro. The cigar will come in 20-count boxes and carry a suggested retail price of $9.60.

Unlike its predecessor, Rebellious is quite limited with a production run of only 1,200 boxes.

The new Rebellious is a big departure from other Henry Clays, a brand that has historically been known for using Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. When Altadis looked to rejuvenate the Henry Clay brand back in 2015, they joined up with Tatuaje’s Pete Johnson for a collaboration cigar called Henry Clay Tattoo. That smoke used broadleaf wrapper from Connecticut, as did Henry Clay Stalk Cut Toro, which earned the No. 22 spot on Cigar Aficionado's 2016 Top 25 list. Even last year’s War Hawk managed to include some Connecticut broadleaf into the binder of its blend.

According to Altadis, the new Rebellious will begin shipping to stores on July 15.
