Casa Cuevas used the Tobacco Plus Expo as the launch pad for its newest addition, the Patrimonio cigar brand. Patrimonio is Spanish for Patrimony in English and it is dedicated to Luis Cuevas, Sr. and his predecessors dating back 100 years. Juan Cuevas was a Spanish expatriot who began growing tobacco in Cuba in the mid-19th century.
The brand is the brainchild of Luis Cuevas, Jr and his son Alec and while it was made at the Cuevas factory in Santiago, the pair hid it from Luis, Sr so it would be a surprise to him once completed. According to Luis Jr., “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.”
Patrimonio is full flavored with a Honduran Corojo wrapper, Habano binder and filler from Pennsylvania, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
It comes in a 20 count box in three sizes, 5 x 54 Robusto Gordo for $10.50; 6X52 Toro at $11 ; and a 6X60 Gordo for $11.50
