J.C. Newman Cigars Company Julius Caeser Newman immigrated to the United States in 1889 and lived the American dream. In 1895, he founded the J.C. Newman Cigar Company, which to this day, is the oldest family-owned premium cigar maker. One of J.C. Newmans earliest brands was Brick House. With the imposing brick house featured prominently in the label, Julius launched this brand to honour his family heritage and beloved childhood memories. The vintage brick house label depicts the pastoral setting similar to J.C. Newman's childhood home - the only brick building in his village, which not only served as the family home but also the town's tavern. There, locals and visitors alike gathered nightly to eat, drink, smoke, and enjoy each other's company.
Brick House The original Brick House cigars were Cuban puros, handmade with the finest Havana tobaccos. Third-generation cigar makers, Eric and Bobby Newman, have recreated this vintage cigar blend using specially aged Nicaraguan tobaccos with a variety of flavourful wrapper leaves to match the rich, well-balanced flavour of their grandfathers Brick House cigars.
Brick House Double Connecticut The Double Connecticut is rolled with the same highly-acclaimed Brick House filler blend with a genuine Connecticut shade wrapper and Connecticut Broadleaf binder. Fewer and fewer cigars are being made with genuine Connecticut wrapper because many cigar manufacturers have found it to be more profitable to take Connecticut seeds and plant them elsewhere, like Ecuador or Honduras. J.C. Newman takes the use of genuine Connecticut tobacco by using it both in the wrapper and binder. The result of this combination is a very spicy and peppery rich flavour - one not only unlike regular Brick House - but one unlike any other cigar on the market today. Using both Connecticut Shade wrapper and Connecticut Broadleaf Binder is what makes this new Brick House Double Connecticut such a truly unusual and unique cigar.
Loose boxed: The Brickhouse cigars are packaged loose in a Cedar Box The cigars are kept in our humidors until dispatch and preferably should be stored in a humidor as soon as you receive them. If you are planning on smoking them within a couple of weeks the cigars should be okay as long as they are kept in a cool dark place.
Preparation: Please note the Brickhouse cigars require cutting or punching before they can be enjoyed.
