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.

In the days to come, I will be publishing a few reviews of cigars that I smoked during my stay in Dubai, UAE. I must say that I was pretty disappointed when I found out that Cuban cigars there cost even more than in France (considering that a pack of cigarettes is 5 times cheaper). That's why I only smoked one Cuban cigar and that's the Montecristo No. 4. According to some sources, this is the most sold cigar in the world (I know for sure that this is the second best-selling cigar in France, behind the Partagas Serie D No. 4). It is considered as one of the big classics.

Along with Punch Double Coronas, the Partagas Lusitanias is one of the classic Prominentes. Prominente is a very long cigar, smoking one requires patience and concentration. Definitely not a cigar for beginners.

A pleasurable lengthy smoke, with a lot of distinctive aromas: wood and earth for the first phase, the Punch Double Coronas keeps going with some honey touches and becomes more and more powerful without being too strong. Occasionally, the end can have some light citrus notes. The tempo is 'tranquil' and provides all the magnificence of this master piece.

Underrated Hermoso #4 reaps big-time dividends in the taste department. This stick was reputed to be a favorite of Mr. Frank Sinatra back in the 40's when he made regular trips to Havana.

Smoked a few of these during the weekend. Cohiba Siglo IV is a cigar you must treat with respect, make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy it - if you are in a hurry, you won't get much out of it (I learned this from my own mistake and nearly spoiled one).

A wonderful thick handmade Cuban, Bolivar Royal Corona is likely one of the higher quality Robustos. It comes as no great surprise that these were voted number one in the top twenty-five of 2006.
