Brick House Connecticut
The Brick House Connecticut cigar is not your average mild-mannered, CT shade-wrapped smoke. Instead, it’s got an exciting secret when you peel back the wrapper: it’s a double Connecticut cigar! There’s a CT broadleaf binder under there.
The vast majority of “Connecticut cigars” on the market use shade-grown leaves, either from CT or grown in Ecuador. These are blends built around a mellow profile of smooth and creamy coffee and cedar flavor and are usually sold as a relaxed alternative to the spicy and potent full-bodied cigars on the market.
Of course, there’s another kind of Connecticut: broadleaf. When used as a wrapper leaf, it’s typically fermented and transformed into a Maduro leaf. The flavors of broadleaf Maduro tobacco are totally different from CT shade. They’re dark and earthy, often full of complex flavors that range from dark cocoa to barbeque sauce, and many other notes besides.
The Brick House Connecticut cigar makers said, “What the hell? Let’s try them both together!”
Underneath this intriguing combination is the highly-acclaimed Brick House filler blend of Nicaraguan tobacco. The resulting flavor profile will be familiar to anyone who has lived in New York City – it’s a lot like street vendor roasted nuts. Do you know that warm and toasty smell that you’ll sometimes catch on the street? The Brick House Connecticut is a lot like that. Cigar Aficionado gave it 89 points (it is a value stick, after all), but praised the warm and toasty flavors and lively notes of almond and peanut.
This is genuine Connecticut tobacco, not CT-seed leaf that was farmed elsewhere to save on costs. If you want a cigar that features leaf is grown right here in the USA, and a tasty cigar on top of that, you’ve come to the right place.
