The original Brick House brand was named after J.C. Newman’s childhood home and was a Cuban puro. Today’s incarnation is made by his grandchildren, Eric and Bobby Newman, with all-Nicaraguan tobaccos, including a dark, oily Havana Subido wrapper leaf. These stogies are sweet, spicy, and complex with notes of red pepper, cocoa, and maple syrup, along with an incredibly even burn and effortless draw. Their meticulous blending and dynamite construction earned the Robusto size a 92 rating in Cigar Aficionado.

Can definitely see why this cigar got a 92! Wasn't expecting this type of flavour and performance, will buy again and again!

Excellent for the price better than many higher priced cigars. could be a little better in construction

This is a good robusto even though it doesn't look it. Well constructed cigar holds ash very well. But the loose draw turns me a bit off and prevents me from buying a box. Taste is good and develops over time.

I'm no expert but probably the smoothest cigar I've ever smoked. No harshness from beginning to end. Remarkably consistent. Great medium bodied cigar

While Brick House does not make an actual "Maduro" cigar, all Brick House cigars currently are Nicaraguan puros (made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco). They feature a sungrown Havana Subido wrapper. Nicaragua is known to produce some of the richest, spiciest, most complex tobacco in the world. The Sungrown wrapper, while not as dark as a Maduro, is a darker, more flavorful leaf in comparison to lighter wrappers, such as a Natural or Connecticut. If you are looking for a nice robust, medium-to-full-bodied smoke, Brick House would be a solid choice.
