After getting a couple of reminders from readers, I guess it's about time to start reviewing the new 2010 Cuban limited editions. What have we got here? A Montecristo Grand Edmundo (5.9 x 52), a Partagas Serie D Especial (5.6 x 50) and a Trinidad Short Robusto T (4 x 50). Notice the ring gauges... The Monte sounds plain boring, Partagas is not really a favorite brand of mine, so the choice of the first cigar to test was fairly quick - Trinidad Robusto T was my favorite cigar in 2009 and I couldn't help thinking that there would be other similarities between these two besides the name.

Trinidad Robusto T was introduced in 2009 to finally offer a robusto vitola within the Trinidad line. As soon as some lucky ones started getting their hands on these sticks, positive reviews flooded the cigar press. At the same time, Montecristo Open were getting high marks in cigar publications all over the world, to be literally destroyed both in the blogosphere and on cigar forums a couple of weeks later. So, is this another "Open" or a true success?

Trinidad Ingenios is the first limited edition by the brand, released in 2007. This classic lonsdale retails for around 18 USD per single and won’t be an everyday smoke for most of us. In this review I will try to determine whether it’s worth the premium.

I have been looking forward to trying a cigar from the Trinidad line for quite some time. Although the price of the Robusto Extra scared me off a bit, I ended up splurging on one because I couldn't seem to find a Trinidad available in any other format in Marseille. Needless to say, when I eventually lit this baby up, I was expecting a great deal from it.

I believe this is the first limited edition by Trinidad. It's good to see that the brand is innovating and offering wider choice. The Ingenios Edicion Limitada 2007 wears a maduro wrapper and the filler is aged for 2 years. As for the flavor, I found it quite simple yet generous.

The Trinidad Reyes is not one of your straight out of the box type cigars. These require a bit of ageing first. However, with a couple of weeks in the Humidor, I found this to be an excellent smoke, meaty and wonderful.

Once I discovered that the Trinidad Fundadores were originally producted only for Fidel Castro, I just had to try one. Now, I see why!

This has to be one of the most refined and well-balanced cigars on the market. Very smooth and creamy coffee, cedar and light earth flavours, with none standing out. Reminds me of Siglo II, but way more subtle.
