Casa Cuevas Cigars announced in a press release that their Limited Edition Flaco Habano and Maduro are on their way to retailers.
Initially released in December 2018, Casa Cuevas decided not to pursue the project any further because their distribution center in Miami was burglarized two months later. The entire Casa Cuevas inventory was stolen, including all the individually numbered Flaco boxes. Because there was no record of which boxes had been sold and which had been stolen, Casa Cuevas decided not to pursue the project any further. However, after constant feedback and demand for the Flacos, the Cuevas family felt it was time to re-release the brand three years later.
The two Flacos, which translates to skinny from Spanish, come in the same 43 x 178mm (7″). The Habano is wrapped in an Ecuadorian Habano, and the Maduro comes in a Mexican San Andres leaf. Binder and filler are the same for both versions, meaning a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and USA Pennsylvania.
Both cigars are made at the Cuevas own Las Lavas Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, and are limited to 750 individually numbered 10-ct boxes each. The suggested retail price is set at $13.50 before any taxes.
