Tampa's J.C. Newman Cigar Co., which has long had most of its premium cigars made in the Domincan Republic, is boosting its popular and inexpensive Brick House line from Nicaragua.
The Brick House Short Torp, a 5 1/2 by 52 mini-pyramid, will be on display in July at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers (IPCPR) trade show.
The new size, says Newman, concentrates the flavors in the head of the cigar. It will have a suggested retail price of $4.95.
The Brick House Robusto scored 92 points and was named No. 17 Cigar of the Year by Cigar Aficionado.
