Prestigious, mysterious and commercially unavailable to the open market until just before the turn of the 21st Century, Trinidad Cigars are a brand named after a beautiful 16th Century Cuban city named La Santisima Trinidad - which translates to ‘The Holy Trinity’.
Trinidad Cigars are said to have been first produced in the late 1960’s in the El Laguito factory in Havana. The Trinidad Fundadores was exclusively produced for Fidel Castro from 1980. These were reserved only for foreign dignitaries and diplomats. It was not until 1998 that Mexico and Canada received the very first exports of Trinidad cigars. Only after that was the rest of the world able to buy Trinidad Cigars online.
Trinidad Cigars like the 4 ⅜” x 54 RG Trinidad Vigia are sticks made with medium strength tobacco leaves that deliver herbal and floral notes and rich earthy and nutty flavours.
