Every Cuaba is made in the distinctive shape known as double
figurado. This was 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 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 cigar enthusiast's collection.
Cuaba, like Cohiba, is a Taino Indian word dating back to the time of
Columbus. It was the word for a highly combustible bush, which the
Indians used to light their ‘cohibas'.
All sizes contain a blend of leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region and
are ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga' -totally hand made, long filler.
