Cuabas are made in special formats known as double figurados. These are cigar shapes that were very popular at the end of the 19th century.
Almost a century later, since 1996, the Romeo y Julieta factory, where the cuabas are manufactured, has continued this old tradition.
Double figurados are the pinnacle of the art of cigar making. For this reason alone, they deserve a place in the favor of every cigar lover.
Cuaba, like Cohiba, is a Taino Indian word that dates back to the time before Columbus. It was the name for an easily flammable shrub with which the Indians lit their ‘cohibas‘.
All formats contain tobacco blends from the Vuelta Abajo region and are ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga’ – long fillers made entirely by hand.
