Casa Cuevas La Mandarria Now Shipping

A limited-edition smoke from Dominican cigar company Casa Cuevas has started shipping to retailers. Called La Mandarria, meaning “the sledgehammer” in Spanish, the cigar pays tribute to an unfortunate incident that took place earlier this year at the company’s cigar distribution center in Miami.

According to Casa Cuevas, burglars used sledgehammers to break into the building and steal over 25,000 cigars. In memory of the stolen cigars, and to celebrate the company’s resilience in the face of adversity, Casa Cuevas has released La Mandarria.

Rolled with an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper, Dominican Olor binder, and filler tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic, La Mandarria comes in a single 6-inch by 52-ring-gauge Toro format and retails for $12.

La Mandarria is made at Luis Cuevas Sr.’s Las Lavas cigar factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, and comes packaged in 20-count, wooden boxes. Only 500 boxes will be released.
