Cuaba

Every Cuaba is made in the distinctive shape known as double figurado, the 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.
Double figurados are at the pinnacle of the cigar maker’s art and for this alone they merit a place in every cigar enthusiast’s collection.
At the start Cuaba offered just four comparatively small sizes. However since 2003 three much larger vitolas, the Distinguido, the Salomón andthe Diadema, have been released as part of the standard range.

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 Indians used to light their ‘cohibas’.
All sizes contain a medium to full flavoured blend of filler and binder
leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone and are Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made.
