Don't let the name scare you.
Normally, when the word "war" is part of a cigar name, you can expect a butt-kicker, but in the case of Henry Clay War Hawk you're getting a good, solid, medium-bodied cigar. Instead of the typical Henry Clay maduro wrappers, this recent entry to the Henry Clay lineup sports a golden-brown Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Broadleaf binder and a collection of fine Honduran long-fillers. There's a pleasant combination of oak and cedar present along with some leather, a bit of cocoa, and mellow spice all swirling around an earthy core. If you want a cigar with a shade-grown wrapper that's not too subtle, then grab yourself a Henry Clay War Hawk.
