Brick House Double Connecticut cigars take Brick House's rich-tasting Nicaraguan tobacco core and lighten the load by combining a naturally-sweet U.S. Connecticut Broadleaf binder with an attractive U.S. Connecticut Shade wrapper. Rolled at the PENSA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, a second band with a "stars & stripes" graphic is placed at the foot to protect the wrapper's delicately silky exterior while emphasizing that the cigars contain some good ol', all-American-grown tobaccos. According to the J.C. Newman family's Bobby Newman, it was actually consumer demand for a shade-grown wrapper cigar that convinced them to create this milder, medium-bodied smoke. It's also one of the few, if only, premium hand-rolled cigars you'll find with this unique, U.S. Connecticut wrapper/binder combination. And like all Brick House cigars, the Double Connecticut is also very reasonably priced.
The smoke is well-balanced, creamy, and toasty with a savory undercurrent of Nicaraguan spice complemented by notes of sweet cedar, hay, coffee, cocoa, leather and roasted nuts. The Double Connecticut also makes a satisfying introduction to the other Brick House by J.C. Newman cigars. More seasoned cigar smokers who want a break from heartier fare, or just prefer U.S. Connecticut Shade wrappers will find Brick House Double Connecticut equally satisfying.
