Trinidad Short Robustos T Edicion Limitada 2010

Trinidad is definitely one of the premium brands from Cuba today but started in 1969 when Fidel Castro and different members of the Cuban government used to had them out as diplomatic gifts but in 1998 they became available, in smaller quantities, for export and the rest of the world started to enjoy them.  Originally only one size of Trinidad hand rolled cigar was produced, the Fundador ( Founder ) at a length of 7.5 inches long and a ring gauge of 40 but lately Trinidad has been coming out with many sizes to choose from with blends from the pick of the Vuelta Abajo region.

As I finished the first third I again detected this brand’s richness with honey and spice and the 2010 entry showed much of both taste sensations as the cigar developed.   This particular Short Robustos would age very well, revealing further flavors that develop in the humidor.  I’m guessing 2 more years will turn this cigar into something memorable.
