"You may not have heard of the Cuevas family, but there is a good chance you have smoked at least one of the cigars they have produced.

"Headed by Luis Cuevas Sr. and his son, Luis Jr., the family owns the Tabacalera Las Lavas S.R.L. factory, which is located in the Dominican Republic and makes cigars for a number of different companies, most notably Gurkha. In April, the family introduced a new cigar brand appropriately named Casa Cuevas that debuted in three different blends: Connecticut, Habano and Maduro." www.Halfwheel.com (2017)

& more from Hw a month ago:

"The Casa Cuevas Limited Edition is a long and slender 7 x 43 vitola with a pigtail cap that comes priced at $9.50 in either the Habano or Maduro blend. The company is making just 500 of the 10-count boxes in both of the blends in which the cigar is offered ... Gabriel Alvarez, director of sales for Casa Cuevas, said that the new cigars use the same components as the rest of the lines and while blended to the size, stay true to the blend."
