Cuban Trinidad brand discontinued by Habanos SA

Trinidad Robusto T

Recently there have been a lot of rumors circulating about the Trinidad brand. We’d already heard that Trinidad will no longer be producing Robusto T (one of the brand’s best-selling cigars), but apparently the news is much bigger than this. It turns out that Habanos SA is ceasing all production of the Trinidad brand for the next two years. The topic of speculation is now the re-launch — as of today, Trinidad produces five vitolas: Coloniales, Fundadores, Reyes, Robusto Extra and Robusto T. There have been two limited editions as well: Ingenios (2007) and Short Robusto T (2010). As you can see, we've reviewed every single cigar from the range.

We don’t yet know which of these vitolas if any will be returning in two years or whether there will be any new Trinidad cigars. Right now Habanos SA is focusing its efforts on Cohiba, which will be the only premium Habanos SA brand from now on. This might be the time to stock up on all your favorite Trinidad cigars before they’re gone, possibly forever :(

Update (Apr 27 2012, thanks Karl!) NOW offical statement is, that Reyes, Coloniales and Fundadores will not be discontinued but only the other sizes such as Robusto T and Robusto Extra.

    Could someone post a pic of what the middle cedar sheet looks like in the robusto t cabinet of 12? I just ordered a box and I could have sworn the middle cedar had artwork on it. But the one I received did not. I could be wrong. Pics would be awesome. Ive never ordered these by the box before, they taste legit after 2 weeks in my humi. just curious about packaging. thanks.

  5. Hey Bourbon, send me your e-mail adress and i’ll send to you pictures you’re asking.

    Thanks for letting us know.
    If you can get them, I highly recommend my favorite cigar of all times: Trinidad Fundadores

  8. false alert guys, the LCDH that gave this info (hamburg) corrected the information

    “We have posted some news about the discontinuation of Trinidad – and that has caused a lot of discussions. Even though we have been informed personally about what we have posted two days ago the NOW offical statement is, that Reyes, Coloniales and Fundadores will not be discontinued but only the other sizes such as Robusto T and Robusto Extra'”

  9. That’s exaclty what my shop in Geneva told me this morning… I guess discontinuing Robusto T is a shame.

    I bought a Robusto Extra this morning, it was so harsh… I was upset… I hope they’ll reconsider selling cigars without an improved quality control.
