Paternity and family legacy are the dominant themes of Patrimonio, a new, regular-production line made by Casa Cuevas Cigars in the Dominican Republic. The brand is debuting at the Tobacco Plus Expo trade show in Las Vegas next week, and will be on the market in time for Father’s Day when it ships the week of May 24.

Company president Luis Cuevas Jr. blended the cigar with his son Alec, and his father, Luis Cuevas Sr. Once the blend was finalized, Cuevas Jr. dedicated the cigar to his father as a surprise. It’s also dedicated to Cuevas Jr.’s grandfather and great-grandfather as well, making this brand a grand gesture in honor of the family’s history in tobacco.

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

Made at the Las Lavas factory in Santiago, the Patrimonio line is rolled with a Honduran Corojo cover leaf, Ecuadoran binder and filler from Peru, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. According to the company, the cigars are full-bodied in strength.

Patrimonio will be available in three sizes: Robusto Gordo, which measures 5 inches by 54 ring gauge; Toro, at 6 by 52; and Gordo, at 6 by 60. They have suggested retail prices from $10.50 to $11.50.

All three sizes will ship to retailers in boxes of 20 which include an image of Luis Jr., Alec and Luis Sr. on the inner lid.
