The Henry Clay War Hawk was introduced in 2019. It consists of an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Broadleaf binder, and Honduran filler. The Churchill will come in 25-count boxes. Pricing is set at $9.00 per cigar.
The name War Hawk stems from a movement spearheaded by Henry Clay that led to the War of 1812. Clay had served as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the early 1800s, gaining a reputation as a U.S. nationalist. In his role in Congress, he put pressure on President James Madison to declare war against Great Britain in 1812. The term War Hawk is a term used to describe someone who favors war to resolve a conflict or dispute.
The cigars are expected to reach retailers later this month. At a glance, here is a look at the Henry Clay War Hawk line:
