Brick House In 1937, J.C. Newman launched Brick House; a true Cuban puro cigar made with the finest Havana tobaccos. To honor his family and heritage, J.C. modeled the Brick House label after his childhood home – the only brick house in their small, Hungarian village. Locals and visitors would gather at the house nightly to eat, drink, smoke and enjoy each other’s company. But with the Cuban embargo came the end of Brick House. Over 70 years later, grandsons Eric and Bobby Newman re-launched Brick House using the most exquisite Nicaraguan tobaccos. Wrapped in a hearty Havana Subido™ leaf, every cigar features a rich blend of Nicaraguan puro tobaccos carefully hand-rolled by master artisans. Aged over a year in the mountains of Nicaragua, every Brick House cigar is a melding of flawless construction, superb quality and master blend. An overnight sensation, the Brick House brand has become one of the most talked about cigars and a best seller nationwide. Awards include the Best Bargain Cigar of 2009 and a place in the Top 25 Cigars of 2010 by Cigar Aficionado in addition to numerous blog and website awards. At J.C. Newman, we stand behind our brick and mortar retailers. That is why all Brick House cigars are price protected from online retailers through a mandatory pricing agreement.
