Cuaba Divinos Review: A Small but Divine Smoke
I first smoked a Cuaba Divinos way back in September 2010. Since then I have always had one to hand for when I want a small-yet-satisfying, tried-and-tested cigar. My face always lights up when I am able to add another one to my humidor and this one had been sitting patiently waiting for me since the spring.
On this occasion, I shared the cigar with my international cigar sisters and brothers on another of our weekly Zoom sessions. For some reason, without any planning, we had all chosen a smaller vitola cigar. I had to giggle when conversation turned to whether I was smoking the Cuaba Divinos or the Tradicionales. When I affirmed that is was the smaller vitola, a ripple of shock went round the group at just how tiny my hands are.
The cigar itself was just as I remembered it: I was greeted by aromas of hay out of my humidor and a light caramel sweetness. It felt beautifully creamy in my hand and I couldn’t wait to light it up and get started.
As I toasted the small foot of the cigar, I got the scent of roasting chestnuts and an open log fire. The first draws were smooth and filled with sweet caramel and sandalwood. The Cuaba Divinos figurado shape gives this cigar an interesting draw that changes throughout the smoke. At first it is a little on the tight side, but this is because of the small size of the foot. As the shape broadens out, the draw gets easier in the middle.
Right the way through the cigar, the sandalwood notes were a constant companion, with different dried fruit flavours, including apricots and figs, ebbing and flowing. Once again this was a beautiful cigar that reminded me why I always try and keep at least one in my humidor.

Wonderful review of a beautiful cigar. Cuaba are one of the less well known Habanos but well worth locating, the Divinos, a superb introduction to the brand
They have been one of my favourite little Cubans for quite a while now and I always try and keep a couple on hand
