Cuaba Tradicionales are an elegant and slender double figurado shaped cigar. It is the second smallest in the Cuaba range sitting between the Divinos and Exclusivos. This double figurado (tapered at both ends) is the size and shape of most of the Havana cigars smoked in the second half of the 19th century. Smoking this shape cigar is like stepping back in history!
The Cuaba brand was launched in 1996 to recreate this tradiational size of cigar. Double Figurados, are at the pinnacle of the cigar maker’s art (the rollers must be Grade 7, the highest certification of roller) and for this alone they merit a place in every cigar enthusiast’s collection. The cigars are handmade at the Briones Montoto (Romeo y Julieta) factory in Havana. There are five main cigars produced under the Cuaba brand, from largest to smallest, they are Salmones, Distinguido, Exclusivo, Tradicionale and Divinos.
Cuaba, like Cohiba, is a Taino Indian word dating back to the time of Columbus. It was their name for a highly combustible bush, which the Indians used to light their ‘cohibas’ (bunches of tobacco).
Cuaba cigars are known for their full-bodied flavor profile. The flavors of Cuaba cigars are typically rich and complex, with notes of earthy, spicy, and leathery character, along with hints of cedar, coffee, and nuts. Additionally, these cigars are known for their smooth and satisfying smoke with a good balance of flavors and aromas. The exact flavor profile of a Cuaba cigar may vary depending on the blend and aging of the particular cigar.
Cuaba Tradicionales cigars are a medium to full flavoured blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone and are ‘tripa larga totalmente a mano’ – long filler, totally handmade.
