Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Oct 01, 2007 | Score: 87

A good-looking cigar with a dark wrapper. It is predominantly nutty with some leather and earth notes, but the finish is notably tangy.

Issue: Cigar Aficionado: Aug 01, 2003 | Score: 86

A well made robusto, firm to the touch. It's toasty and pleasant, with woody flavors and a hint of orange peel. Medium bodied.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Oct 01, 2002 | Score: 89

A veiny and toothy cigar. The burn is somewhat off, but the draw is easy. It has toasty, nutty flavors with a leathery edge. Decent balance; will improve over time.

Issue: Cigar Insider: Jan 01, 1998 | Score: 88

A solid cigar, with uneven color. Toasty, musky with very light earthiness. A short, dry finish. Age will help the smoke.

Cigarmaker José Seijas has done wonders with Peruvian tobacco, using it to add power and flavor to cigar brands once known as mild. He has also used it to create new brands, and one of his best is Trinidad. Named after the famed Cuban brand that was once used for gifts by the Castro government, the Dominican Trinidad is distinctive in its own right, made with lovely Sumatra-seed wrappers grown in Ecuador. The Peruvian, Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos combine for a spicy, flavorful and gutsy smoke, especially in this 5-inch, 50-ring robusto size.
