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

Appearance : ★★★★☆
The Trinidad Fundadores is surprisingly unattractive in appearance. The filler appears to be placed unevenly. This is one of those situations where the looks are truly deceiving. Don't let it fool you.
 
Construction : ★★★★☆
The construction of the cigar, once again isn't overly nice in appearance, but it is truly just the appearance. It is actually constructed quite well with a very smooth and even draw and great aromatic smoke.

Flavor : ★★★★★
From the first hit, mother earth. Nice woodsy flavor with so much texture. I assumed that it would become overwhelming as it burnt. By the second third, I was impressed. The texture and flavor remained, yet it seemed to smoke with such smoothness. The final third was a bit stronger, but still not enough to make me pry it from my fingers. Picture a scenic huge plain of rolling sand dunes. That's what the Fundadores impresses upon you.

Value : ★★★★★
Absolutely the best of the best. These are great investments for gifts as well as personal use.

Overall Rating : ★★★★½
If you consider yourself a true cigar connosieur, this is the one for you. They are so impressive that you won't want to smoke them except on special occasions. The Fundadores are reminiscient of a fine Chablis.

  1. It is a light and pleasant cigar, the flavors are not strong enough (for me). However, the volume of smoke is incredible for such a small gauge cigar.

  2. Stephen Keen says:

    Most of the time i would rather have a good fat cigar, but this skinnly little number was a nice change of pace for me. I agree that it wasn’t all that strong, but it made a good early morning smoke.

  3. It is very pleasant and a surprisingly smooth cigar. Great spice notes and woodsy flavors. I picked it up only because they were once made exclusively for Castro and I had to see what they were about. Truly amazing… you have to try one.

  4. Parfait du premier au dernier tiers si l’on aime
    la douceur et l’équilibre.Crémeux comme une bonne tasse de capuccino,belles notes de cêdre et d’épices.Moins intense que L’especial No 1
    de Montecristo mais tout aussi superbe
    (10.90 CUC soit $12.13 US à Cuba)

  7. Box ABR 09.Very good looking and nicely smelling cigar.Lights very smootly and burns nicely and evenly.Yelds quite an amount of smoke for this format.Very creamy in first third develops notes of toasted fruits and wood.Ends up with notes of cocoa,pepper and coffe.I have smoked all the Trinidad and this is my favourite.
