Delivers to a 'T'.
Trinidad Reserve is dark, oily, and offers quite a nice kick. It also happens to look divine.....but enough drooling for now. Initial puffs are dominated by bold notes of pepper and spice, and that's just the beginning. Additional hints of cedar, cocoa, leather, and earthy undertones enter the fray within a full-bodied profile. Thick and chewy, the flavors coat the palate in a balanced yet robust fashion. A stout brew, this recipe undoubtedly gets its simmer from the wrapper. A Cuban-seed Ecuadorian leaf fermented to perfection is draped over the outside. This leaf embraces a Nicaraguan binder along with aged Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers. All in all, it's hands down one of Trinidad's best offerings. Go ahead and give it the old college try, you'll be happy you did.
