J.C. Newman Cigar Co. will once again be making a cigar for the Chinese zodiac new year.
The Brick House Year of the Pig is a 6 x 50 toro with a pigtail. Drew Newman, general counsel for J.C. Newman, told halfwheel the blend is a Nicaraguan puro, though it’s lighter than the new Brick House Ciento Por Ciento.
It will be sold only in Asia with production limited to 1,000 boxes of 10 cigars. The Brick House Year of the Pig will debut in December.
This is the second year J.C. Newman has made a special Brick House for the Chinese zodiac calendar. It is part of a growing list of companies that includes Maya Selva, Tabacalera S.L.U. and most notably Davidoff.
