Even though Trinidad has been made since 1969, the marca didn’t become available on the customer market before 1997, but it gained a strong fanbase since. The 5×50 Robusto T is the latest addition to the portfolio and I got this as a gift from Patrick, the shopmanager of the La Casa del Habano in Antwerp. We herf there regularly, last time I wasn’t able to go and he gave my friends this cigar for me.
The cigar is latte colored with a small pigtail. The wrapper has a small veins and a mild oily shine. I like the band. The construction feels good and the predraw is fine. It has a tobacco flavor.
I taste nuts and toast, smooth but full and a few puffs later I also taste wood and pepper. After an inch I taste a lot of leather with some pepper and every now and then some nuts on the background.
Halfway I still taste leather with a hint of dry chocolate. The nuts slowly grow in strength and starts to overpower the leather. I also taste a strong white pepper taste.
This cigar lasted me eighty minutes. The draw is great and I get plenty of medium thick smoke. The ash is pepper and salt colored and firm. The burn is great, straight and slow. This Trinidad Robusto T is full flavored and medium to full bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? Every now and then, great cigar but with a high price tag
