A regular-production line from family-owned, Dominican cigarmaker Casa Cuevas Cigars will be on display at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas soon, and it’s called Sangre Nueva. Spanish for “new blood,” Sangre Nueva is the first creation of Alec Cuevas, grandson of family patriarch Luis Cuevas Sr., who was recently promoted to director of brand development. Alec is the fifth generation of the Cuevas tobacco family. 

Sangre Nueva consists of a Cameroon-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador, a Honduran Corojo binder and Dominican, Nicaraguan and Pennsylvanian broadleaf fillers, the last of which Alec used a larger percentage of for added strength. 

According to the company, the cigars are medium-to-full bodied.

“Sangre Nueva is a personal love letter to my family, who placed their faith in me to create something from scratch given my knowledge of tobacco,” Alec stated. “It is also the culmination of patrons and distributors alike that took time out of their day to educate me and better help me define my palate throughout all these years.”

Casa Cuevas Sangre Nueva will be available in three sizes: Robusto, measuring 4 3/4 inches by 52 ring gauge ($13); Toro, 6 by 52 ($13.50); and Double Perfecto, 6 by 58 ($14.75). All sizes come in boxes of 10.

The cigars are made in the Dominican Republic at the Las Lavas factory in Santiago, which is owned by the Cuevas family, and should reach tobacconists in late July.
