Culebra

For The Terrible Trio

An exotic form of Parejos is the Culebra. Meaning “snake” in Spanish, these oddities have existed since the late 19th Century. They are achieved by effectively braiding three Panatela Purejos together.

Although something of a novelty, the manufacturing process isn’t simple. In order to make a culebra, the roller must be sure that the tobacco is moistened more than usual to prevent them breaking under the pressure.

Once finished, a single band wrapped the three cigars as well as a ribbon on each end. Sometimes, the three cigars will share a single cap on both the head and the foot.

Rather than smoking all three at once, they can be separated and traditionally shared among friends. If you’re part of a terrible trio of pals, they’re an ideal way to spend a moment together.

It seems we can't find what you're looking for.
