The Cuban Trinidad brand celebrated its 50th anniversary last year with three new, regular-production sizes. The Esmeralda is the third and final cigar in Trinidad’s newest trio and it’s the thickest of them all. See how it scored in its first taste test. We also present vertical brand tastings of three new brands that have only been on the market for a few months. Días de Gloria comes from cigarmaker A.J. Fernandez, one of the men behind the Cigar of the Year. Rocky Patel turned to his own tobacco fields for his new LB1 line. And Drew Estate and Crowned Heads partnered on the new La Coalicíon, a cigar made from a bold, four-country blend that reflects the style of both companies.
