The prestigious Trinidad cigar has been commercially available for two years, ample time for counterfeiters to create their imitations. Note the gold coloring on this genuine band -- a soft, gold hue without any glitter or shimmer. The simplicity of the band's design is denoted by its lack of significant detail. The boldness of the parallel lines and the lettering remains constant, with the word "TRINIDAD" more prominent than the words "CUBA" and "HABANA." If you have a Trinidad cigar in your hand, be sure to check the cap for a flag tip, or pigtail twist. All Trinidads are made this way.
