The name of the brand comes from a local Cuban language used by Taino people and it refers to the plant that was used to light up the tobacco. Cuaba is one of the youngest cigar brands on the market, being founded in 1996. The young age is not an obstacle for the brand produced in the Romeo y Julieta factory. The unique taste is given by the Vuelta Abajo tobacco. The area is famous for having a rich soil and a perfect humidity that is ideal for the tobacco. The brand launched as a revival of figurados cigars and the wrappers used are premium quality. The hand-made cigars have a medium strength and a very versatile notes palette.
