The Brick House Maduro has a deep-colored wrapper. It is a little on the veiny side, with a consistent oily sheen from foot to cap. Maduro is very solid to the touch although it appears quite silky. Its pre-light smell has a spicy aroma, and it carries through the length of the cigar.
Once lit, the burn was pretty even and it had a very smooth, creamy texture on my palette. You will definitely taste the combination of wood, cocoa and earthiness. Maduro’s draw is extremely smooth and gives way for these full, rich flavors.
About halfway through the cigar, the flavors became more intense and bold, but always maintained the creamy notes. All of this helped to keep the cigar nicely balanced. Although listed as a medium-full cigar, the fullness never came through completely – still, a delicious smoke.
The Brick House is a complex cigar, well balanced with good construction. It is a medium-body that is both flavorful and easy to enjoy.
