Evan Williams Single Barrel + Brick House

Cigar Details

Brick House delivers in a big way…Rated ’92’ by Cigar Aficionado and honored among “The Best 25 Cigars of 2010,” Brick House will impress even the most discerning aficionados with its smooth, creamy character and well-balanced flavor.

Brick House comes handmade from Nicaragua, hailing from Fabrica de Tabacos San Rafael S.A., distributed by J.C. Newman Cigar Co. The brand was originally launched by Julius Caeser Newman in 1937 to honor his family’s heritage and remains one of the oldest brands ever distributed by J.C. Newman Cigar Co. 

Originally a Cuban cigar, Brick House now comes packed full of well-aged Nicaraguan long fillers all masked with a proprietary Havana Subido wrapper, making this beautiful cigar a Nicaraguan puro. At first glance, the wrapper offers a red appearance with some veins and a smooth, yet oily sheen. The smoke offers an oaky character with thick, creamy smoke that coats your palate, leaving behind an enjoyable oily feel. The cigar’s construction is flawless as it burns cool and even from head to foot while presenting a medium to full-bodied character that you won’t find in any other blend. Definitely a must-try.
