In March 2019, Altadis USA released the Henry Clay War Hawk which recognizes Henry Clay spearheading the movement that led to the War of 1812. Henry Clay rose to Speaker of of the US House of Representatives in the early 1800s where he was known as a staunch US nationalist. He was the leading voice who applied pressure to President James Madison to defend our young nation by declaring war again Britain in 1812. It was his view that military force was the only option left when it came to the British. It was this action that coined the phrase War Hawk which is now used in political circles to for someone who favors war to settle a conflict. The Henry Clay features an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Broadleaf binder and Honduran fillers. Today we offer you the cigar review on Henry Clay War Hawk.

One of the questions we get asked most is, do you guys carry Cuban cigars. The answer is no. Which is usually followed with, “Are Cubans as good as they say they are?” It’s a debate held among many cigar smokers, and we will let you know our thoughts if it’s worth the hype, or if it is a myth that should not be believed  The guys will take a look at the Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto which comes from an island 90 miles south of Miami. Is it any better then a Nicaraguan, Honduran or Dominican cigar, or is just the fact they are not available at US Tobacconists.

If you mention one name in the cigar industry that gets Ash Hole Michael DiMare all hot and bothered, it is Skip Martin. He is a RoMaCraft fan boy to the extreme, and this week we light up the Intemperance BA Intrigue which features a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper. He won’t be able to sit still and contain himself with glee, but will Ed Sullivan and Aarron Noonan feel the same way?

His factory makes cigars for many different companies, but often over-looked is his own line Jose Dominguez. Today we catch up with the man, the myth and the legend as we smoke a cigar that is unique in so many ways. The packaging looks like a sneaker box, the cigar sizes match up with the cigar prices (before any local taxes), and in lieu of a band, the name of the brand and its logo are laser etched right into the wrapper. Join us as we storm the caste and fire up Hightower. It’s a cigar that everyone will be talking about before long.
