Trinidad is named after the beautiful 16th Century city of La Santisima Trinidad (The Holy Trinity), listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, which is situated on Cuba's south coast. 

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 Robusto 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. 

Tasting Notes

A rich roasted macademia and leathery coffee flavours mixed with a very creamy draw. An extremely well crafted cigar with a perfect burn and draw. Don't hesitate, buy as many as you can!

88 / 100

"...Initial saltiness becomes earthy with intermittent notes of graham cracker and floral elements. The finish is a bit dry..."

Delivery as promised, left it in the humidor for 3-4 weeks, best cigar I have had so far, it was a marvel! Novice I may be, but these are the ones that really teach you the difference!

Rich and slightly earthy with slight bitter coffee undertones. I had mine with a coffee stout and enjoyed thoroughly, definitely would buy this again.

Hands down one of my favourite cigars. Looks absolutely stunning, and smokes beautifully. Construction is great and burns relatively evenly. And the overall taste and smoking experience is lovely.... I highly recommend them for all the above and in my opinion a great price for a very regal cigar.

Reviewed by John Goddard It's my first try of a Colonial and it appears very well made, with a smooth wrapper. The draw is easy but not too loose, and my first impression is of a fine cigar in excellent condition, with a dark 'earth and wood' character. The predominant flavour is wood, and I think that smoked too quickly or drawn too heavily, this would become sharp and overpowering. As it is, I smoke very slowly and there's no harshness. The most striking thing is the way the flavours cycle on the palate. Take a draw, exhale, and the first and foremost flavour is definitely wood, accompanied by an aroma of clean, dry wood-smoke. As this decays, it gives way to a distinct taste of coffee, rather like 'Tia Maria' in fact; at the same time the aroma becomes softer and honeyed with a touch of spice. There are many other flavours at work here too: hints of dark chocolate, honey and toasting nuts, some bitterness - like wormwood, and some black pepper later, but these flavour-labels really don't give the whole picture, which is smooth, complex and interesting. A little further on, and the now familiar wood / coffee cycle adds another dimension, with the coffee fading on the palate to sweetness rather like sugared almonds. No, I've never read 'Tia Maria' and 'sugared almonds' in a cigar review either, but I swear they are there! The intensity and character changes throughout, but it's never muddled and somehow there's a balance to it all. It's complex but not really complicated. I love the way it combines sweetness and dryness at the same time, and the overall effect is a really satisfying and very accessible smoke. Towards the end the flavours are still evolving. The wood flavour has softened, in fact I'm sure there is more than one wood, but I can't put names to them all. Conjures up a strange image doesn't it, of a man wandering around a forest, cigar in hand, gnawing tree-trunks for comparison! Although dynamic, this cigar is not 'light and bright'. I would describe it as 'dark' referring to its earthy and subtle nature. Not a cigar for every occasion perhaps, it's different and cerebral, but quite special and of excellent quality. It has burned evenly and lasted for well over an hour. It's surprisingly satisfying for a relatively small cigar, and I don't feel at all short-changed now it's time to let it go. This review kept my attention and stayed on track as far as talking about the cigar. Maybe a little wordy for my taste but that is just me. It did make me more interested in the cigar. Reviewed by: Dan Hanson Score: 7/10 I enjoyed the review of the Trinidad Coloniale. The reviewer opens by giving a good description of the cigar and how well it is made. His observations are interesting to me. Some of the flavour descriptions are intriguing and there are a couple of humorous passages. For the most part, I think the review was very well-written, and it does make me want to try the cigar. Reviewed by: Scotty J Score: 9/10 There was not much visual description in this review, but there was more in depth analysis of the flavor. I understood the flavor better. The text was not too wordy or cute. It got right to the facts. This was the best review for interesting me in trying the cigar. Reviewed by: Steve S Score: 8/10 OVERALL SCORE: 24/30

I had bought a box of these for my colleagues to introduce them to the taste of proper tobacco. While I certainly do not count as a connosieur, or even an informed cigar afficionado, I can definitely say that this is a great smoke to introduce your fellows to cigar smoking. The taste is lighter than Cohibas, and the smoke lasts a convenient, medium time, 30-45 minutes - just enough for a good conversation starter. If you prefer lighter, mellower tasting cigars I wholeheartedly recommend the Coloniales. (For context, dear fellow addict, my other preferred ones are the Behike 56, the Montechristo No.2, the now gone Trinidad Robusto, and lately the Romeo & Julieta Piramides Anehados.)
