Henry Clay Stalk Cut uses its “Stalk Cut” harvesting method for its tobacco leaves. Cutting the stalk completely and hanging it in its drying barns. This method allows the tobacco to retain more its natural oils and nutrients yielding richer and complex tobaccos. This cigar features a blend developed through the knowledge and skill of the Grupo de Maestros an elite brotherhood of master blends with 250 years of experience between them!
Cigar Aficionado said, "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."
