Almost three years since news first leaked, Casa Cuba is finally a regular production item. Multiple retailers have begun taking a new shipment of Casa Cuba, a new line the company previewed with a soft launch at last year’s trade show.
Casa Cuba was part of the company’s 100th anniversary celebrations, almost all of which were delayed until 2013. It is blended by the company’s patriarch, Carlos Fuente Sr. with the intention to taste like some of the company’s older releases that once used Cuban tobacco.
It shipped in four sizes: Doble Cinco (5 x 50), Doble Cuatro (4 1/2 x 54), Doble Seis (6 x 52) and Doble Tres (5 1/2 x 44). Each size was offered in boxes of 30 with the cigars featuring a secondary band that read “PreRelease 2013.”
While the secondary band has already been dropped from sizes, some retailers are receiving boxes of specific sizes with the secondary band still on it, it likely is due to additional stock and should disappear from shipments over time.
A representative from the company did not return request for comment.
