Henry Clay Henry Clay Tattoo - 2015 Limited Edition

Henry Clay is an old and storied brand that has been neglected since the cigar boom of the 1990s. However, cigar aficionados like Pete Johnson have quietly smoked the rustic Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrapped, all Dominican filler, soft box pressed cigar as an everyday smoke and a humidor staple; especially the 5 ½” x 42 Breva. The Henry Clays have always provided a good value for everyday smokers and connoisseurs who enjoy a fuller bodied Dominican Cigar.

Pete Johnson, owener of Tatuaje has collaborated with Altadis USA, the owner of the Henry Clay brand, to produce a very special 2015 limited edition Henry Clay at Altadis’ Tabacalera de García factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic. This is a departure from Pete Johnson’s Tatuaje brands that are made by the García family’s factories in Miami and Estelí, Nicaragua that feature Nicaraguan tobaccos. It seems as though Pete has always had an affinity for Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. The La Casita Criollo brand is 100% Connecticut Broadleaf and Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers are used in the Reserva formats of the Selección de Cazador, and on the Cojonu 2012. For Altadis, collaboration with blenders alongside its famous Grupo de Maestros master blenders is something that the company has had recent success with. The Montecristo Espada was made by the Plasencia family in Nicargua and the ROMEO by Romeo y Julieta Aging Room Small Batch F25 made by Boutique Blends.

The Henry Clay Tattoo comes in a single vitola, a 6” x 52 Toro. It is blended around the classic Henry Clay Connecticut broadleaf wrapper from a 2010 harvest, but the filler blend also contains Nicaraguan tobacco, unlike the classic Henry Clays. The binder is a Dominican Piloto Cubano from 2010 and filler leaves include Dominican Olor (Vintage 2012), Dominican Piloto (Vintage 2012), and Nicaraguan Criollo (Vintage 2013) from the Ometepe region. The cigar is full bodied. The Henry Clay Tattoo is also box pressed like the classic Henry Clays but feature a pig tail cap. Production was strictly limited to a 50,000 cigars packaged in 20 count boxes. All 50,000 cigars (2,500 boxes) have been sold by Altadis to retailers at the 2015 IPCPR Convention, so make sure you get some now because they may never be seen again.
