Named for the illustrious, 19th century U.S. Senator from Kentucky, Henry Clay Brevas cigars have their origins in Old Havana and were once one of Cuba's leading cigar brands. (A picture of the original Havana factory is on the box) Now made in the Dominican Republic, these peppery, full-bodied cigars are blended with robust Dominican Ligero tobaccos and dark, U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf wrappers. Not for beginners, this is a heavy cigar with a long, spicy finish, better suited to more experienced palates.
This cigar is a great smoke. The construction is one of the best. The cap and wrapper are constructed with care. The smoke is consistent and the draw is firm, but not too firm. The ash represents the attention of detail to the roller. I am impressed with this cigar. It is not only satisfying to smoke, but to also hold in your hand.
I smoke these a couple times a day. They always taste good. Not the best looking cigar but who cares your gonna burn it up anyway. For the money it can't be beat.
This is a great cigar. Looks seem to have improved over the past year or two. Consistent burn, clouds of great smelling smoke abound. I always try to have a few in the humidor
