Every Cuaba is made in the distinctive shape known as double figurado.This was ths style that at the end of the 19th Century was all the rage for Habanos. A century later, in 1996, this rich tradition was revived at the Romeo y Julieta factory where Cuabas are made.
Double figurados are at the pinnacle of the cigar maker’s art and for this alone they merit a place in every ciger enthusiast’s collection.
Cuaba, like Cohiba, is a Taino Indian word dating back to the time of Columbus. It was their name for a highly combustible bush,which the Indian used to light their ‘cohibas’.
All size contain a blend of leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region and are ‘tripa larga totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally hand made.
