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.

CUABA Tradicionales Box of 25

  • Ring Gauge: 42
  • Cigar length: 120 mm / 4.72'
  • Strength: Medium to Full Body
  • Vitola: Double Figurado
The reliability of this Tradicionales is second to none. This Figurado is progressive in its taste beginning with dried flower, liquorice, then honey and finally moist earth. A gentle wonder amongst the fields of taste, that is how I describe this cigar, alternatively you could say it is an ode to the art of the Torcedor. The thing that I like about this cigar is it that one is able to smoke them at any point in the day because they are uninhibited and aftertaste free. Tradicionales are the cigars to have if you are stuck on a desert island with one match!
