Patrimonio, the newest release from Casa Cuevas, is on its way to stores as the company announced today that it has begun shipping.

The line uses a Honduran corojo wrapper, Ecuadorian habano binder and fillers from Peru, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The company calls it a full flavored, full bodied cigar that aims to deliver an extremely complex blend with rich, bold flavors.

It is offered in three sizes, all of which come in 20-count boxes:

  • 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 line was created by Luis Cuevas Jr. and his son Alec Cuevas, a project they dedicated to Luis Cuevas Sr. and the paternal lineage of the family’s tobacco history, which began over 100 years ago. It traces back to Juan Cuevas, who began growing tobacco in Cuba in the mid-19th century after leaving Spain.

“Patrimonio is a project that is extremely near and dear to my son Alec and myself,” said Luis Cuevas Jr via 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.”

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
