Rated #14 in Cigar Aficionado 2016!

Vigía is named for the watchtowers in the Cuban city of Trinidad erected to observe the sugarcane fields.

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

The earthy tones throughout keep this smoke well balanced out from start to finish, truffle notes start this cigar off which slowly develops into a nutty finish.

87 / 100

"...A short, fat robusto with a pigtail cap. It's a predominantly woody smoke with some herbal elements and an ashy aftertaste..."

Bought this as part of a sampler, the other 2 in this sample were excellent and was really looking forward to this vigia. Utterly disappointed, draw was impossible, even using a draw tool it was like pushing it through wood! What a shame, I understand you can have bad batches or a badly constructed cigar but this was shockingly bad. Reverted to a partegas no4 to console myself.

Just smoked one last night. What can I say apart from Straight into my TOP 5 Best Cuban Cigars! I did not cut the cigar & would not recommend it either, just twist the pigtail off which creates the perfect hole to smoke this fine cigar. Draw, construction, burn & flavour has to be 9.5 all the way through. About an hours worth of pleasant relaxed joy, Medium to Full. Im definitely buying a few more boxes!

I first smoked one of these some months ago, having read a well written review on another site and thoroughly enjoyed it. At the time the opportunity did not arise to review it myself, but I didn't hesitate to buy a couple more. The construction is impeccable, with a little pigtail twist on the cap. The wrapper is a flawless matt light brown and smooth to the touch. The unlit aroma is delightful and hints of floral and cedar are apparent. I used a punch on this but opened the hole up with a 4 tightly overlapping punches, as this thick 54 gauge cigar. Lighting was easy and despite others mentioning canoeing, it was not experienced with this particular smoke, although the previous one did to a small extent. Once lit, the first thing that you notice is the effortless smooth draw, as near to perfect as you are ever likely to get, with a rich thick cool creamy smoke right to the last. The balance is predominantly a sweet, with a mix of flavours, slightly floral and a little honey, underpinned by toasted nuts and fragrant wood. Others have mentioned an earthiness, but if it was there, I'd say it was not in the forefront. The flavour remains very consistent throughout the smoke, with the aftertaste becoming a little nuttier in the final third of this fine cigar. This is a very satisfying medium to full bodied smoke and you know you are smoking something a little special when you take that first draw. It made the most of a relaxed late summer Sunday afternoon and seeing as I only smoke outdoors, it could be the last for a while!

What else can I say, this is a very special cigar. Lovely on a summers evening. Holds a good tooth and is beautifully wrapped. A pleasant draw not to light or too tightly packed. The outer wrapper is smooth and a real attractive colour. I did get a slightly uneven burn in the first 1/3rd but a little work with the lighter sorted that out for the rest of the burn. I brought this 6 months ago for 17, and it has been worth the wait. I would definitely add this to my top 10.
