TRINIDAD VIGÍA

TRINIDAD VIGÍA


Trinidad is one of the anomalies within Cuba's collection of cigar brands. It started as a commercially unavailable cigar reserved for diplomats and dignitaries. Once the brand was released to the public in 1998, it came in one long, thin size called Fundadores. Then the brand expanded by adding a few more vitolas, only to contract afterward by deleting sizes in 2012. Trinidad's newest addition, the Vigía is the exact opposite of the Fundadores. Rather than being long and slender, this cigar is short and squat. While it maintains Trinidad's signature pigtail cap, its heavy ring gauge offers an abundant smoke, lush with earthy truffle notes, oakiness and a warm nutty finish. Vigía is named for the watchtowers in the Cuban city of Trinidad erected to observe the sugarcane fields.
