House Resolution 1639 - The Traditional Cigar Manufacturing & Small Business Jobs Preservation Act is a pro-active bill written to prevent the FDA from taking away your freedom to purchase and enjoy cigars.
To commemorate this historic event in the cigar industry we have collaborated with the J.C. Newman Cigar Co., America's oldest cigar manufacturer, to bring you House Resolution cigars.
House Resolution cigars are handmade in the Newman's Nicaraguan (Brick House) cigar factory using a medium bodied blend of aged Cuban-seed, Nicaraguan grown long-filler tobacco. The wrapper is a chocolate brown, sungrown San Andres maduro. The rich flavor is slightly sweet with undertones of leather and nutmeg.
Every box of House Resolution cigars sold helps support our efforts to make HR1639 a law that will keep the FDA from coming between you and your beloved cigars. So here is your chance to smoke a great cigar, at a reasonable price, and bring some attention to HR 1639 every time you light one up.
Wrapper: San Andres Maduro

Intensity & Flavor Abounds, 3rd May 2013

Smoke Time: 1hr 20mins
Excellent smoke, 4th May 2013
Reviewer: Anil Valiani
I smoked this cigar with a straight cut and lit with wooden matches. Pre-light draw was very nice, pepper and cedar smell. The draw is very nice and smooth. Initial smoke was mellow creamy and rich. The complexity of this smoke is very earthy and peppery. Halfway into the cigar I picked up a very strong coffee taste like a fine expresso coffee. Toward the end of the cigar it is very peppery to an almost medium to full body smoke. The end of the cigar really makes you salivate and very peppery. This is a very nice medium cigar and I would not mind having this in my humidor for an occasional smoke. Flavor I would say is like a creamy cedar and earthy tobacco rich smoke. This cigar puts off a lot of smoke. I had some burn issues with it initially, the ash stays on for a long time with little to no touch ups. I would purchase this stick for the price its comparable to a monte cristo #2 or a padilla. I enjoyed the complexity and smoothness of the cigar and the amount of smoke it puts of is relaxing. Great cigar with morning coffee or occasional after meal cigar. You do not get the buzz that you would in a full body cigar but still very enjoyable for an every day smoke or on the golf course.

Nice easy draw with a sweetness that continues as the cigar progresses, nice long ash with a mild but interesting flavor. Even burn staying mild through the entire smoke. Great cigar for the price point. Enjoy smoking it for a good cause. Robert Tackett

Not For Me, 7th May 2013
Reviewer: Roger Williamson
I thought this cigar had a nice feel and a good draw. It was a dark brown with darker mottled features showing up and down the stick. There were a few veins and the surface was bit rough. But it seemed tight and firm. I used the larger hole on my punch and that went smoothly as the cap held up. In fact the cap never loosened or unraveled. The draw on lighting was smooth and easy. The burn lasted about 1 hr 20 minutes. The burn was even and smooth. Mechanically this cigar was close to perfect. The only problem was that I did not like the taste. and while there was copious amounts of smoke, it was thin and dry. The taste reminded me of some Mexican cigars I have had before. Towards the end, the smoke seemed to get a little thicker and moister but the taste was not any better. I would not even consider this as a yard gar nor would I smoke another. It should be noted that Corona gave me this cigar in return for a review. I am sure many of the reviews here are the same case. I really wanted to like this cigar but it was not to be. I mean, what's not to like about a free cigar? Well taste for one thing.
flavorful, 7th May 2013
Reviewer: David Rockowitz
This was a long smoke. Took it to the golf tournament. Lasted a good hour and a half. Smooth, this on of my favorite smokes from Corona. I usually smoke the shorter cigars but i love the flavor of this series.

Reviewer: Ian Martin
I lit it up on the first tee. and I didn't finish it till 15 great slow burn rich flavors of chocolate and a bit of cherry like notes when well with the Sam Adams I was drinking. Creamy smoke not too heavy and I was impressed no heavy lingering aftertaste. good stick...
Great cigar!!!, 7th May 2013
Reviewer: James King
My God...this is SUCH a nice stick! For the price, I don't think you can beat it! The draw was dead-on, with huge amounts of rich and creamy smoke. Burn was nice, too. I got a little over two hours on this one. LOVED IT!!!
yummy, 7th May 2013
Reviewer: Carmine Fortunato
A medium, satisfying smoke. Upon lighting, woodsy and leathery. Midway through notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice burn.
Made for Scotch, 7th May 2013
Reviewer: Dean Terry
Out of the cello wrapper there is exquisitely delicious sweet earthy smell with hints of coffee and nuts. The wrapper is dark and mottled with areas with slight oily sheen and smooth leather appearance. The cigar was well constructed. On lighting the sweetness comes through with a spicyness backed by coffee, nut and a slight woody notes. A nice fairly complex set of flavors develop with a creamy sensations that develops on the palate. A Scotch aged in either Sherry or Port casks would make a likely fine complement to this smoke. It is quite smooth, easy draw and quite satisfying to smoke.
Golf Course Smoke, 8th May 2013
Reviewer: Patrick Donovan
Nice dark wrapper but really expecting more flavor and taste. Ash was great a a nice 2" but unfortunatly for me lacked any big flavor profile I expected from the nice dark wrapper. Was a consistant burn throughout the cigar with few or no touch-ups. Last 2" of cigar was very hot and harsh. A good smoke if not paying attention on the golf course but something I wouldn't sit down to smoke. Hints of choclate and mild expresso were there just never let loose in flavor town.
Mild to Medium, 8th May 2013
Reviewer: Anthony Palmer
This one came off mild to me. It had some good notes of spice and was constructed well, but flavor really never came out. I was hoping for a bit more.
A solid smoke, 9th May 2013
Reviewer: Paul Guereber
A solid medium bodied smoke with a no changes in flavor or strength. A couple of burn corrections over a 2 hour smoke. While not a WOW cigar, I would smoke it again.
its a big smoke!, 11th May 2013
Reviewer: Charles Van Horn
Nice dark wrapper, deep chocolate color, good aged tobacco scents. I paired it with a good Honkers Ale (goose Island). It lasted a good 2 hrs. Mine was a hard draw, but not too hard. 7x52 made for a cigar to sit back and enjoy for awhile. it made a good ash. Scents of wood and chocolate. I'm surprised about what a good quality cigar it is for the price. Its a great value.

easy smooth draw long white ash. Complex flavor, but very pleasant. Aroma very nice and mild. All in all very good smoke
NIce mild-medium smoke, 12th May 2013
Reviewer: John Byrnes
Surprisingly mild despite the Maduro wrapper. I used a straight cut and it burned consistantly throughout with only a couple of burn corrections needed - the cigar was smooth and well textured. As it got down to about half I detected a sweet taste, a little "chewy" if you will. It was a nice, even draw for the whole smoke. This is a good mild smoke and would go well with a cold beer.
House Resolution Speaker - 7" x 52, 14th May 2013
Reviewer: DAVID YIELDING
The House Resolution looks rather oily with the course wrapper that's a little on the ugly side. There are no soft spots, it has a slight woody floral smell and it looks well rolled. It lights very easy and draws well. It burns evenly, is cool and has a medium gray, flaky ash. The cigar is a nice full body of rich, robust floral and fruity flavor. The aftertaste is a fruity, burnt woody and very pleasant taste. It reminds me a little of the Rocky Patel edge. It is a good cigar with a message.
Average, 15th May 2013
Reviewer: Scott Johnson
Nice looking out of the wrapper and well constructed...nice draw and initial puff...took the second puff and not much flavor...I do enjoy a full-bodied cigar, but the House Resolution was too mild for me...gave it a chance and found at the quarter mark a slight sweet, creamy flavor...still on the mild side...above average draw from start to finish which was about an hour and 15 minutes.

Reviewer: George Wynne
The wrapper is toothy with a dry look. The feel is firm to touch but softens when smoked. A good draw with a nice spice throughout the cigar. A nice medium body cigar, but very smokeable for novice smokers too. The cigar never got bitter and required no touch ups from start to finish. Well worth the time and money to give this cigar a try.
House Resolution Speaker 7 X 52, 26th May 2013
Reviewer: Andrew Kwon
Initial inspection -impressive looking stick. I like the ornate band and foot band. The prelight aroma is earthy. Initial toast and light provide an nice amount of smoke. 1st third had a hint of sweetness. 2nd third changes into a subtle bitter cocoa. Final third stayed the same. Excellent construction. Only wish it had more strength. I would recommend it for those who like a mild smoke.
Decent burn, horrible flavor, 28th May 2013
Reviewer: Brad Gunnell
I figured I'd light this one up on Memorial Day poolside. The cigar had a decent burn and was fairly even throughout. However, the flavor was not good AT ALL.It reminded me of those knock-off Cubans people purchase on Bahamian cruises. Just plain awful.
I'd vote for it!, 28th May 2013
Reviewer: Blake Bork
When looking at this cigar, it is put together very nice. It's a sturdy smoke with a great wrapper. The flavor is mild with a wide range of flavor constructed in it. I've had these several times and it seems to be my "go to" in my indecisive moments.
Great Stick for Great Cause, 3rd Jun 2013
Reviewer: James Bartlett
The House Resolution Chairman was created in partnership between Corona Cigar Company and J. C. Newman Cigars. This is a Nicaragua cigar with a San Andreas maduro wrapper and Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-filler tobacco. This cigar was stored in my personal humidor for about two weeks prior to today. The maduro wrapper has a dark oily look with slight veins. The pre-smoke smell is slightly sweet with a tinge of nut. The cigar was tight and densely packed. After removing the red clothe band on the foot, I went with the traditional straight cut. The cigar lit and the start burned very evenly. The cigar started with a medium to full body flavor. The flavor was slightly peppery however towards the end went to a more mild finish. The final third of the cigar finished smoothly. I would smoke this cigar again.

I usually avoid "house" cigars, but this one convinced me. I got one free when I ordered cigars for my wife. Looked like a nice stick, so I tried it. WOW
