Next week, Casa Cuevas will show off a new three-size line that pays tributes to the Cuevas’ family’s forefathers.
The Casa Cuevas Patrimonio—which translates to patrimony—uses a Honduran corojo wrapper over an Ecuadorian habano binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru. It will be offered in three sizes:
- Casa Cuevas Patrimonio Robusto Gordo (5 x 54) — $10.50 (Box of 20, $210)
- Casa Cuevas Patrimonio Toro (6 x 52) — $11 (Box of 20, $220)
- Casa Cuevas Patrimonio Gordo (6 x 60) — $11.50 (Box of 20, $230)
The inside of the box has a picture of three generations of Cuevas family members: Luis Cuevas Sr., Luis Cuevas Jr. and Alex Cuevas.
“Patrimonio is a project that is extremely near and dear to my son Alec and myself,” said Luis Cuevas Jr., president of Casa Cuevas, in a press release. “When my father left Cuba, he left tobacco behind. Years later, after rebuilding in the U.S.A., he was able to revive our family tobacco history by opening his cigar factory in the Dominican Republic. Because of my father’s perseverance, our family legacy continues to live on.”
The Casa Cuevas Patrimonio will debut at the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE 2021) trade show, which takes place May 12-14 in Las Vegas.
