Typical rich Trinidad cigar with a smooth draw, a little fuller flavour than the Reyes and a heavier richer finish, smooth start with notes of leather and cinammon
Trinidad, as a Habano brand, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like Cohiba, it was made only for gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998 was it released for general sale and then only in small quantities. At the start there was only one size of Trinidad: Fundadores. In 2003 three more sizes, the Reyes, the Coloniales and the Robusto Extra, were added to the range.
At the same time Trinidad’s livery and its cigar band were updated to recognise the prestige that the brand commanded. Most recently, in 2009, the Trinidad Robustos T was introduced to complement the brand?s range.
For several years Trinidad was made at El Laguito, the Cohiba factory, where its uniquely fragrant and aromatic, medium flavoured blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone was developed.
By the end of 2004 demand for Trinidad had outstripped the production capacity at El Laguito and it was decided that the manufacture of all the brand?s sizes should be transferred to Pinar del Rio City, the most important city of Vuelta Abajo.
All sizes are Tripa larga, Totalmente a Mano long filler, totally hand made vitolas.
