IMG_5181.jpgCigar review: The original Henry Clay to me was a good, no nonsense blend which produced 60 minutes of solid flavor. Now we have a chance to sample the Henry Clay Rothchilde, now born and bred in the Dominican Republic. As always, how and where I receive the smoke does not impact my subjective judgment. Please smoke the cigar yourself and make your own call.

Brand/ Name of Cigar: Henry Clay/ Rothchilde

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

Size: 5 x 50

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro

Binder: Dominican Republic

Filler: Dominican Republic

Shape: Robusto

Price: $9.99, Lone Wolf Cigar Lounge,

Where and When Smoked: Lone Wolf Cigar Lounge, 8/10/19

Appearance/Construction: Often described as rustic , this might be an understatement. It is not a handsome smoke but has it’s own unique character.

Dark brown wrapper, solid feel, oily wrapper and looks are not everything.

Flavor/Taste and Aroma: First third: Solid pepper start with a touch of citrus thrown in. Tangerine comes into mind.

Second Third: Pretty smooth with a medium profile, getting more spice and now added coffee. I also detect some nuttiness.

Final Third: Getting more spice , which added another level of flavor. The other components are there, and make the cigar more fun to smoke.

Smoking Characteristics: Even burn, smooth with no issues. Well constructed throughout.

Conclusion/Overall Impression: Henry Clay cigars appeal to a seasoned cigar smoker who wants a straightforward blend that is appealing in flavor but are not thrown off by the down to earth look. You will not go wrong by smoking a Henry Clay.

Final Thoughts and the Numbers:

This cigar was suggested to me by one of knowledgeable Lone Wolf Cigar Lounge staff. Buy a five pack for your humidor.

Flavor/Taste and Aroma: 3.8 out of 5

Smoking Characteristics: 3.8 out of 5

Conclusion/Overall Impression:  3.7 our of 5
