J.C. Newman's popular Brick House brand of cigars first debuted in 1937, being named after company founder, Julius Newman's, childhood brick-built home in Hungary. The ‘Brick House’ name eventually faded, but was revived in 2009 when Julius' grandsons re-blended the cigars using Nicaraguan tobaccos and being rolled at the company's own J.C. Newman PENSA factory in Nicaragua. It wasn't long before the Brick House cigars brand reached and outpaced its former glory, rising to become one of the most requested cigars on the market.
Brick House has since added both maduro and Connecticut-wrapped variants, offering smokers of nearly all preferences an amazing cigar that they can enjoy. TheConnecticut-wrapped cigar is dubbed the Brick House Double Connecticut, taking on an American theme through the atypical blend selection of authentic Connecticut-grown tobaccos in both the wrapper and binder. Indeed, while the majority of Connecticut Shade is now grown in Ecuador, authentic American Connecticut tobacco is now considered more of a delicacy, meaning cigar smokers are given a real treat with this affordably priced specimen! Brick House Double Connecticut's shade-grown Connecticut wrapper surrounds a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers, offering a mild/medium body and surprisingly lively flavors that set it apart from Connecticuts of old. The flavors in this very special cigar include notes of heavy whipping cream, hazelnut, natural honey sweetness, nutmeg, and clean cedar.
