History of CUABA

First introduced in London in 1996, the Cuaba brand was the first new Cuban cigar brand to be introduced into commercial production since 1968. Historically, "Cuaba" is the Taino Indian word for the special Cuban bush used to light the "Cohíba" or "Tobacco" on the Island. Generally associated with a taste that is similar to Romeo Y Julieta, full of various flavors but never tasting too much of one flavor in particular, Cuaba cigars are on average mild and balanced. All 4 of the Cuaba vitolas 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.

How do you describe the taste of a cigar to someone else? That is the eternal debate we have at Me and Rick have spent countless hours discussing and disagreeing on flavors of cigars. Rick is very impatient and wants everything to be express, "give it to me on one word Richard" he says. I am long winded and overly elaborate in my descriptions, hence the middle way is best, between me and Rick! Divinos are all caramel and moist earth. At times they flirt with fruits in the guise of quince, fig and apricot which are all rich in syrupy sweetness. How ever strange and comical this little fellow looks he is well constructed and smokes like a champ. There is something jovial about Divinos, not in a silly way, it is a superb cigar and the perfect evening smoke with good friends.
