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.

Appearance : ★★★★☆
The maduro wrapper looks good, although it cannot be compared to, say, a Cohiba Genios. Good effort overall.
 
Construction : ★★★★½
The pre-light is spicy. Good draw throughout the smoke. Satisfying construction.

Flavor : ★★★★☆
The cigar began with a powerful combination of woody and spicy flavors (particularly, white pepper). These flavors remain in the second third, along with rare notes of cocoa - very nice, really. Then, in the last third the Ingenios just gets too strong and rude for me. I prefer having something milder in the end and I got the opposite here. Was disappointed because I was expecting these hints of chocolate to get stronger...

Value : ★★½☆☆
Not a very good price/quality ratio. Even if this is a limited edition, I really can't see why it costs twice more than, for example, Bolivar Inmensas or Sancho Panza Molinos.

Overall Rating : ★★★★☆
Can't really say that "you must spoil before you spin" perfectly applies in this case, but I definitely think that with some more work Trinidad could have produced something more interesting. The Ingenios is a very good start though and I will be waiting for news from their side.
