The Cuaba cigars brand specializes in figurado formats. These cigars were very popular before the revolution, especially in the twenties. This form gradually lost its luster until it became almost obsolete in the seventies. In 1996, Habanos S.A. decided to revive these forgotten modules by creating Cuaba cigars. It is the Romeo y Julieta manufacture that takes up this challenge. Cuaba cigars were the first “new” cigars to be introduced to the market after Cohiba in 1982.
By their complexity, the figurados embody the pinnacle of torcedor art. If only for this reason, any true lover should incorporate them into their own selection. Because with 0.5% of exported production, Cuaba cigars remain very discreet. Cuaba, like Cohiba, is a Taino word. The natives, on the arrival of Christopher Columbus, used it to designate a shrub whose wood was particularly combustible. It was with a branch of cuaba that the Tainos lit their cohibas.
Originally, there were only four Cuaba cigar modules, added to the Cuaba “Salomones” series.
