Cuaba Tradicionales – Single Cigar
Every Cuaba is made in the distinctive shape known as a double figurado, the style that at the end of the 19th Century was much in vogue for Havanas. A century later, in 1996, this rich tradition was revived at the Romeo y Julieta factory as a tribute to how Habanos once were presented globally. 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, and no doubt long before. It was their term for a highly combustible bush, which they used to light their ‘cohibas’. All sizes of Cuaba are ‘tripa larga, totalmente a mano,’ – long filler, totally handmade.
A particularly elegant, slender double figurado shape that was the size and shape of most of the Havanas smoked during the second half of the 19th century. Enjoy an encounter with the past when you light up this cigar
