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 range for Havanas. A century later, in 1996, this rich tradition was revived at the Romeo Y Julieta factory.
Double figarados are the pinnacle of the cigar maker’s art and for this alone they merit a place in every cigar enthusiast’s collection.
Cuaba is a Taino Indian word dating back to the time of Columbus. It was the name used for the highly combustible bush used to light the ‘cohibas’.
