The Brick House brand was created in 1937 by Julius Caeser Newman, founder of the J.C. Newman Cigar Company. He named the cigars to honor his family home in the Hungarian countryside, a brick house that housed the Newman family residence on the top floor and a local tavern they ran on the bottom floor. The original Brick House cigars were made using Cuban tobacco. The brand faded in time, but in 2009 it was revived by third generation owners Eric and Bobby Newman using Nicaraguan tobaccos.
Brick House is a delicious Nicaraguan Puro crafted with a dark, reddish-brown Habano wrapper and a healthy blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The outcome is a medium to full-bodied smoke that's rich, flavorful, and smooth. With notes of earth, cedar, pepper, and coffee that are complemented by a toasty, slightly sweet finish this is a well-made, tasty cigar!
Brick House received a 92-rating and 'Top 25' cigar honors in 2010. The reviews noted: "It's hard to beat the bang-for-the-buck factor of the cigar, a $5 Nicaraguan Puro with copious amounts of flavor. It smacks of sweet wood and tea with a toasty aftertaste."
