Read About 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 Havanas. 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.
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 handmade.
