Casa Cuevas Cigars today announced their plans for next week’s TPE trade show, which will be held from May 12th–14th in Las Vegas, NV. The company will debut a new line—Casa Cuevas Patrimonio—which has been made in honor of Luis Cuevas Sr., father of Luis Cuevas Jr. and Master Blender at the family’s Tabacalera Las Lavas factory in the Dominican Republic.
Patrimonio translates to mean Patrimony, commemorating the Cuevas family’s paternal lineage in the tobacco industry, tracing back to Juan Cuevas, who began growing tobacco in Cuba in the mid 19th century. The cigars were envisioned by Luis Cuevas Jr. and his son Alec Cuevas, made in secret and revealed to Luis Sr. when the project was finalized.
Patrimonio is said to be full-flavored and full-bodied, making use of a multinational blend that is among the most complex recipes in Casa Cuevas’ lineup. This includes a Honduran Corojo wrapper, Ecuadorian Habano binder, and fillers of Peru, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. The cigars have been rolled in three formats: Robusto Gordo (5″ x 54 | $10.50 MSRP), Toro (6″ x 52 | $11.00 MSRP), and Gordo (6″ x 60 | $11.50 MSRP), each packaged in boxes of 20 cigars.
