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 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 the word for a highly combustible bush, which the Indians
used to light their "cohibas".

CUABA CUBAN CIGAR BRAND HISTORY-First introduced in London in 1996, the Cuaba brand was the first new Cuban cigar brand to be introduced into commercial production since 1968. Historicaly,
Cuaba is the Taino Indian word for the special cuban bush used to light the “Cohiba”
or “Tobacco” on the Island. All four of the Cuaba vitoles are in the figurado (perfecto) shape: the Exclusivos,
the Generosos, the Tradicionales and the Divinos.This shape was popular until the beginning of the 20th century.Habanos S.A. decided to revive the British tradition
of smoking figurados; hence the fitting unveiling of the brand in London, England. Habanos, S.A. has since reintroduced other historic brands and shapes
