With the annual Tobacconists Association of America (TAA) trade show now underway, J.C. Newman has joined the list of manufacturers to offer an exclusive cigar blend to TAA retailers for the first time.
The cigars are known as Brick House Ciento por Ciento, which translates to mean “100%” in Spanish, as the blend marks the first Nicaraguan puro in the Brick House lineup. Rolled in a singular 6¼” x 54 toro grande format, Ciento por Ciento showcases a Habana-seed Corojo wrapper grown in the Jalapa Valley. This leaf is paired with an all-Nicaraguan binder/filler that originates from “three of Nicaragua’s mountainous regions.”
Ciento por Ciento will only be available to retailers attending the annual trade show this week in the Dominican Republic and is expected to begin shipping by the end of May.
