“First rolled in the 1930s, Brick House was one of my great-grandfather’s original cigar brands,” said fourth-generation owner Drew Newman. “He created this brand to honor the rural village where he was born in Austria-Hungary. The house where he was born was known as the “brick house’ because it was the only house in the village made of brick. The bottom floor was a general store and tavern and my family lived on the second floor.”
Brick House Ciento por Ciento cigars are bold and flavorful. They featured a dark wrapper grown in Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley. The binder tobacco is grown in Esteli and the filler comes from three regions in Nicaragua.
“These Brick House cigars are very special because we roll them with 100% Nicaraguan tobacco,” said Newman. “”Ciento por Ciento’ means 100 percent in Spanish. These are the only cigars that we roll entirely with Nicaraguan tobacco.”
