Status Cuaba is a current post-Revolution brand introduced in 1996, specifically to produce Figurado shaped cigars. It is classified in Habanos SA's 'Other' group of their portfolio bands. In the pre-2019 classification system it was a niche brand. When first introduced, Cuaba was considered to be a premium brand, alongside Cohiba and Trinidad, and frequently appeared in exotic commemorative releases. Over the years it appears to have slipped, and today only receives occasional special releases. Unlike other 'Other' category brands, Cuaba does not appear to be eligible for Regional Editions.
Generally The range comprises medium to full-strength cigars, using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region.
