The last of the completely hand rolled Cuban cigars. A mold is used for consistency with all other brands. Unique in that the shape is fat in the center with pointed ends. Rich and sweet, with plenty of flavor for their size.
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 Cuban cigar maker’s art and for this alone they merit a place in every cigar enthusiast’s collection. And ‘Cuaba’, like ‘Cohiba’, borrows its name from 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.
