Random quote: "There's something about smoking a cigar that feels like a celebration. It's like a fine wine. There's a quality, a workmanship, a passion that goes into the smoking of a fine cigar." -Demi Moore

The Cigar: Henry Clay War Hawk Rebellious LE

The Specs:
Wrapper: Nicaragua (Habano)
Binder: Nicaraguan
Filler: Nicaraguan
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium-Full
Size: 6" x 54

Due Date: Sunday, September 26, 2021

The Hype:
The Henry Clay War Hawk Rebellious seeks to turn the attention back towards its namesake, honoring the fighting spirit that the former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives became known. (Henry Clay was a staunch U.S. nationalist that became a leading voice among a faction of Congress known as "War Hawks," signifying their desire for war with the United Kingdom (War of 1812) as an ultimate resolution of conflict.) This cigar is aptly named, as it is a bit rebellious in going against its own tradition by not using a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper – as do most other Henry Clay brands. The Rebellious LE is the second release in the Warhawk series and is expertly rolled at AJ’s prestigious Tabacalera Fernandez factory in Nicaragua with a rare vintage 12-year old Nicaraguan Habano wrapper paired with the finest aged Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobaccos. Limited release of a single size in 1,200 boxes.

Kevin has enlisted the following reviewers:

1. johncw
2. StogieDad
3. BewareDaPenguin
4. ninfiction
5. nirab

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to klamm143 for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.

O.K. fellow GEEKS. Per the USPS in Raleigh, NC all of the "anticipated boxes of cigars" will arrive to each participant on Friday 09-10-2021 except the box going to BewareDa (Happy Feet) Penguin. Adam must have been a bad boy or either the Pony Express runs a bit slow up in Illinois. His box is due to be delivered on Saturday 09-11-2021. Keep a eye out for the deliveries and hopefully nothing bad happens to Adam's box - 9/11 delivery????

Tracking numbers to follow.

Enjoy the smokes and thank you all for doing this on the quick turnaround. THANK YOU BRUCE for helping facilitate the Monthly Critiques.

ADAM.....so glad the Pony Express got to you and delivered the items without damage. I was afraid the sticks might get crushed in the saddle bags or better yet - smell like horse sweat.-----Let's hope the stick does not taste like horse poop when smoked...LMAO.

OK - that's everybody - looks like the USPS did their job without error - KUDOS TO THE USPS, or Pony Express in Adam's case....... ENJOY them .... and the companions. I'll be interested to see if you folks have the same opinions and flavor profiles about this stick as I do.
STAY SAFE Brothers and Sisters.
