The newest cigar from Casa Cuevas, La Mandarria, is now shipping. La Mandarria translates in Spanish to “the sledgehammer” and references the tool used by burglars that stole the entire Casa Cuevas inventory of cigars earlier this year. The cigar was shown off at IPCPR and only 500 boxes were rolled.
The Casa Cuevas factory, Las Lavas in the Dominican Republic, has been behind many cigars for other brands for years, but only recently did the company release its own brand of cigars.
President of Casa Cuevas Cigars, Luis Cuevas Jr. says, ” La Mandarria is a testament to the values that my father taught me as a child. He was a fighter who optimized the American dream. As a small cigar company, the robbery was an obstacle, but nothing he hasn’t been able to deal with in his storied past. The Mandarria represents the principal tool used against us, but also represents the strength and will of my father. We look forward to sharing “La Mandarria” with the public in Las Vegas at the 2019 IPCPR”.
The Mandarria is described as a full-bodied cigar, a first for the company. It comes in only one vitola, a 6X52 Toro chosen by Master Blender Luis Cuevas Sr. The blend uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and features a pig tail and shaggy foot. MSRP is $12.00 per cigar.
