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.
The Trinidad Coloniales is a real beauty with its silky and oily wrapper, the minor veins and of course the twisted cap. Looks can be deceiving, but in this case they weren't.
The construction of the cigar is excellent: it's spongy, perfectly filled and has superb burning qualities along with a perfect draw.
It is mild-medium flavour and body with a slick dance of subtle flavours - sweet woods, coffee and chocolate develop down the smoke with fresh notes of vanilla and coconut arriving later on with a spice on the nose which heightened in the final third. This is a very delicious and refined cigar with complexity to the hilt.
Like other Trinidads they are a bit costly, but if you want a sure thing for your money, you can't really go wrong with these.
Overall Rating :
This cigar is a must for the aficionado, however realize this is an evening cigar to be smoked slowly as to not overpower you. A man's cigar and a special taste equal to the Bolivars.
