The Esmeralda, measuring 5 3⁄4” (145 mm) x 53 ring gauge is named after one of Trinidad’s most famous streets and as with previous vitolas is presented in the brand's classic Semi Boîte Nature (SBN) varnished box containing 12 cigars.
The Trinidad Esmeralda, Media Luna and Topes all follow on from the successful launch of the Trinidad Vigia in 2014 and a new and sophisticated option for smokers who prefer heavy ring gauges in a shorter format.
This new cigar has been rolled to Trinidad's classic blend of medium strength and creamy aromatic smoke. It has been made "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga"- Totally Handmade with Long Filler - after a careful selection of filler, binder and wrapper leaves from the best tobacco-growing plantation in the Vuelta Abajo area in Pinar del Río province, Cuba.
Trinidad cigars share a lot of history with Cohiba, not only for their age but also as a diplomatic gift. The marque originally only consisted of a single vitola, which was given to diplomats and their staff/advisers. News of these rare cigars was released and the serious habanos aficionados tried to source at least one of the infamous “Funadores”. In 1998 the cigar was released to the general market, being produced in small quantities at the Laguito (Cohiba) factory. Over the years the line has extended and is now a proud part of the Cuban cigar landscape.
Unlike Cohiba, the Trinidad cigars are not subjected to the extra fermentation. This aside only tobacco deemed of a high enough quality are used for Trinidad, ensuring a sold and complex flavour profile. Characteristically Trinidad cigars are thick and creamy with hints of aromatic woods and beans. Medium in body and very easy to smoke by those new to the cigar world. Also ideal as a mid-day smoke for aficionados alike.
