The Cuaba brand was first introduced in London in 1996, making it the first new Cuban cigar to be brought into commercial production since 1968. Cuaba is the Taino Indian word for the special Cuban bush used to light the "Cohiba" or "Tobacco" on the island. The Cuaba vitoles are in the figurado (perfecto) shape. Fat through the centre of the shaft with both ends pointed. This was traditionally a popular shape until the beginning of the 20th century and, in fact, the smoking of the figurados was a British tradition. No doubt this is why Habanos S.A. unveiled the brand initially in London, they have subsequently reintroduced other historic brands and shapes.
The Cuaba is manufactured from tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region in the rather romantically named Romeo y Julieta factory. They are rich and smoothly flavoursome with an almost chocolate aroma despite their size.
