Casa Cuevas Cigars has announced it will release La Mandarria (The Sledgehammer). It will be a limited edition Toro that is under the company’s Casa Cuevas line that will make its debut at the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show.
The inspiration of La Mandarria came from the devastating effects of a robbery that occurred in the company’s warehouse earlier this year. The company explained in a press release that it will is “smashing through adversity.”
Back in early February 2019, Casa Cuevas Cigars’ Miami Headquarters were broken into and completely wiped out. Using sledgehammers to break through their warehouse wall, thieves got away with over 25,000 cigars, including half the inventory of their Limited Edition Flacos; a line they were unable to replace because the numbered boxes were shipped from the factory out of sequence and there was no way of knowing which particular boxes were stolen.
Following the robbery, the Cuevas Group was overwhelmed with an overabundance of love and support from manufacturers as well as consumers. Many even offered to create crowdfunding accounts in order to help the Cuevas Group recuperate some of the costs associated with their loss. Although thankful and humbled, the Cuevas Group did not accept any of these offers and knew they would come out stronger and better from this unfortunate event.
Thus, smashing through adversity, the Cuevas Group resolutely created a positive from a devastating negative and are now proud to announce “La Mandarria” as part of their portfolio.
The cigar itself features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper featuring a pig-tail and shaggy foot. It will come in one size – a 6 x 52 Toro with a retail price of $12.00 per cigar. Initial production of La Mandarria is limited at 500 boxes.
