(Miami, Florida) Casa Cuevas Cigars announces that they will unveil the Patrimonio cigar brand at the Tobacco Expo Plus taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center from May 12th through May 14. The Patrimonio cigar brand translates to Patrimony in English. It is dedicated to Luis Cuevas Sr. and to the paternal lineage of the Cuevas tobacco history which began over a 100 years ago. The Cuevas family’s tobacco history began when Juan Cuevas, a Spanish expatriate, began growing tobacco in Cuba in the mid 19th century.
The Patrimonio is the brainchild of Luis Cuevas Jr. and son Alec Cuevas. While the Patrimonio was created in conjunction with Master Blender Luis Cuevas Sr. at the Cuevas family-owned Las Lavas Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, the name of the new line, its significance, and its packaging was not revealed to Luis Cuevas, Sr. until the blend itself was finalized. This was in order to surprise Cuevas, Sr. with a line that is an homage to him, his father, and his grandfather.
Luis Cuevas Jr., President of Casa Cuevas Cigars stated: “Patrimonio is a project that is extremely near and dear to my son Alec and myself. 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.”
Patrmionio is a full-flavored, full-bodied cigar. The blend features tobacco from various regions, with the purpose of creating an extremely complex blend with richly bold flavors. The Patrimionio is composed of a Honduran Corojo wrapper, Ecuadorian Habano binder, and filler made up of Peruvian, Nicaraguan, and Dominican tobaccos.
The Patrimonio blend will be available in three vitolas and packaged in 20 count boxes.
