Originally created by Julius Caeser Newman in 1937, Brick House has been a stalwart in the industry for decades. The brand gets it’s name from the family’s house in Hungary, a (you guessed it) brick house that housed the family up top, and the tavern they read on the bottom. Today, Brick House has stood the test of time, still delivering a top-shelf, complex handmade at an extremely wallet-friendly price.
Brick House is a gorgeous Nicaraguan puro crafted with a dark, reddish-brown Habano wrapper and a robust blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The result is a medium to full-bodied cigar that’s rich, flavorful, and smooth. Notes of earth, cedar, pepper, and coffee are complemented by a toasty, slightly sweet finish. Well-made, tasty, and modestly priced.
Brick House received a well-deserved 93-rating and was named a Top 25 Cigar of 2016 AND a Top 25 Cigar of 2010. That’s consistency! 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.”
