Henry Clay War Hawk Corona Description

Rated 95 and Named #10 Cigar of the Year of 2020!

The number ten slot on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 cigars list for 2020 is owned by the Henry Clay War Hawk Corona.

For the curious history students: Henry Clay was a former Speaker of the House and Secretary of State who was a major figure in American politics during the era of American territorial expansion. The “war hawk” label came from his bellicose posture toward certain matters, including another war with the British in the War of 1812.

Given that modern politics gives us all enough to grow ulcers about, let’s leave the history lesson aside and focus on a more relaxing pastime – smoking cigars.

The Henry Clay War Hawk Corona cigar is made in Honduras by Flor de Copan and is built on a Honduran long-filler blend. The binder is a surprising one: Connecticut broadleaf. From that, you know that you’ll get earthy complexity and a blend, unlike your average stick with a light blonde wrapper. That wrapper leaf is not surprising: Ecuadorian Connecticut shade, and it completes one of the best cigars of 2020.

The Cigar Aficionado judges called out bright flavors of citrus, spice, and nutmeg, as well as the sneaky and surprising strength (listed as somewhere around medium). There’s a lot of fine cigars that are changing up the traditional profile of Connecticut stogies. People have always enjoyed the classic coffee, cream, and cedar flavors and the dialed-back strength of a Connecticut, but some have been looking for these things to be accentuated a touch. Using a Honduran filler blend and a CT broadleaf binder are certainly ways to accomplish that goal, and probably helped bring the Henry Clay War Hawk cigar into the spotlight.

The flavors were called “bright and lively,” with notes of citrus, spice, and nutmeg. Fun stuff!

If you want an interesting Connecticut, this cigar is worth a smoke.

Henry Jay War Hawk Corona

Overall not bad for a smoke deeming this was smooth, not obtrusive & seemingly well balanced for what I got (unsure if I have smoked previously) but nevertheless I was well set for a smoke for the afternoon & this gave me something to do other than watching the Lightning get embarrassed by the Red Wings (sorry Tampa Bay).
