Cigar Review: JC Newman Brick House Natural Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

The JC Newman Brick House Robusto is a tribute to the founder of JC Newman Cigars, Julius Caesar Newman. While the previous Brick House cigar wasn't my favorite, perhaps I got a bad stick, and this one will be better.

If you're ready to join me on this tour of optimism, let's dive in!

While I didn't know it when I started smoking this cigar, the JC Newman Brick House Natural Robusto is a Nicaraguan puro with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. After punching the end, the draw was awesome, and I got a good first impression of this stick.

Final Thoughts:

The draw of the JC Newman Brick House Natural Robusto was perfect. The burn was almost perfect.

However, I didn't like the flavors of this cigar at all. There was a lot of flavor and spice in the second half, but they weren't nearly as good as they were in the first third of the smoke. The flavors were a little like sour citrus, and I did not enjoy them.

But, with all that said, the flavors of the Brick House Natural Robusto might be exactly what you're looking for. Even though I didn't, you might really enjoy how this stick was blended. And since the construction, draw, and burn of this cigar were all almost perfect, the JC Newman Brick House Natural Robusto earns a CigarScore 4.
