Casa Cuevas Cigars announces the return of the Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Flaco Maduro and Habano (both 7 X 43) at the 2022 Tobacco Plus Expo January 26-28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Originally released in December 2018, the brand was well received by the public before the Casa Cuevas Cigars’ distribution center in Miami was burglarized two months later. The entire Casa Cuevas inventory including all the individually numbered Flaco boxes were stolen. Demand has brought the Flaco back.
The Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Flaco Maduro features a Maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and filler with tobaccos from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania.
The Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Flaco Habano features a Habano wrapper Nicaraguan binder, and filler with tobaccos from Colombia, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania.
The Flaco comes in ten count boxes ($135), with 750 individually numbered boxes made for each blend. Both blends are made at the Las Lavas Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
“The burglary was a low point for us, and so we decided to move forward with other projects but there was a constant stream of communication from retailers and consumers to bring back the Flaco brand,” Luis Cuevas, president of Casa Cuevas Cigars, said in a press release, “We are excited to showcase the Flacos at the TPE. Going forward the plan is to release a limited amount of the Casa Cuevas Limited Edition Flacos every three years.”
