Description[edit]

Old Henry, a Bulldog, was the mascot at Holt's for many years until his death in 2006. The cigar was developed as a tribute to a "beautiful pooch with champion features."[1]

It is described as "full-bodied and robust, yet balanced and complex." The filler consists of aged Nicaraguan leaves. There are four wrapper varietals: Nicaraguan Corojo (Old Henry), Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro (Old Henry Maduro), Connecticut natural (Old Henry Gold Label) and Ecuador Sumatra (Old Henry Pure Breed).[2]
