Every Cuaba is made in the distinctive shape known as a double figurado, the style that at the end of the 19th century was all the rage for Havanas. A century later in 1996 this rich tradition was revived at the Romeo y Julieta factory. Double figurados are at the pinnacle of the cigar makers 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 tho the time of Columbus. It was their name for a highly combustible bush, which the Indians used to light their Cohibas. All sizes contain a medium to full flavoured blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone and are completely handmade with long filler.
