Once I discovered that the Trinidad Fundadores were originally producted only for Fidel Castro, I just had to try one. Now, I see why!
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.
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.
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.
Absolutely the best of the best. These are great investments for gifts as well as personal use.
Overall Rating :
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.
