There are not many cigar companies that can say they have the only version of a specific cigar on the market at any given time, but J.C. Newman is one of them.
That is because in September, the company shipped the Brick House Double Connecticut, a cigar that lives up to its name by incorporating not only a shade-grown wrapper from Connecticut, but also a broadleaf binder that is also grown in Connecticut, along with filler tobaccos hailing from Nicaragua.
J.C. Newman says this is the only cigar currently on the market that features both a Connecticut shade wrapper and a Connecticut broadleaf binder in the same blend, although it is certainly not the first blend to use that combination.
Packaged in boxes of 25, the new regular production line is the third Brick House blend to be released, joining the original Brick House and Brick House Maduro. The cigars are being rolled at J.C. Newman’s PENSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
