    Beautiful stick despite the foot damage, my friend. The Reyes is a great short-format smoke with slightly less power for those with more sensitive palates. I hate to admit this but I rarely have time in which to smoke a double robusto unless I am on the beach or golf course. Judging by your review, this cigar deserves one’s undivided attention.

    Superb review! I really enjoy the Reyes, but I haven’t had a chance to try this one. It looks like I had better save up for it though.

    Thanks for the kind comments folks!

    I really want to try the Reyes out as well, maybe even more so than the Coloniales.

    I like both the Reyes and the Colonial, but have yet to try the RE. Ive had two resting for two years, but Im afraid to smoke them. I might like them and they arent cheap.

    Nice review of the Trinidad Robusto. A great afternoon smoke with a bold kick to the cigar. Not for the average smoker.

    This is one of my all-time favorite smokes. This is what a Cuban Cigar was meant to be.

    Very nice review indeed. Just had one and I have to say, it is a marvelous smoke. The last third is epic and makes Partagas D4 and P2 make a run for the money when it comes to power and intesity. To the point of almost overwhelming in the most civilised way.

    Trinidad Robusto Extra

    The best cigar I ever had came home with me on an impulse – and it wasn’t even my impulse. The sales manager of my Kuala Lumpur retailer had placed two Trinidad Robusto Extras among the couple of dozen other cigars I had gone there to acquire.

    Hers was the best kind of salesmanship – if you’re going to give away a freebie, don’t toss in some cheap remainder-bin dog rocket nobody wants: invest the best.

    The two Trinidads she gave me looked shabby and sad, dusty and grey and frayed of foot. They’d been languishing in an open box on a back shelf for a long time. Nobody had wanted to buy these two (understandable, at about US$50 each in this country). I’d had a Reyes and a Coloniales in my time, and although there is no way not to be impressed by any Trinidad, the cost-benefit analysis didn’t compute for me.

    And I tend not to bother with little cigars. The TriniRobEx, though, was exactly my preferred size. After a few days in my humidor, the cigars had regained some suppleness and sheen. I lit one. Two hours later, the sales manager was chagrined to tell me they didn’t have stock at present, and so she could not sell me a box of these cigars.

    Within a fortnight, I had acquired two boxes of 12.

    I’ve regretted significant box purchases before – my tastes changed before I could finish consuming 25 Partagas Serie D robustos, for instance, or Partagas 8-9-8 lonsdales. One gets bored; familiarity can breed contempt. I enjoy variety: I maintain four humidors of mostly Cubans, Dominicans and Nicaraguans, of about a dozen makes of every size and shape from corona on up to the Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona and Partagas Lusitania.

    These Trinidads are now the cream of my crop; top of the heap; pride of my stash. I hope some of these first 26 will still be in my humidor years from now. And somewhere among them may be the second one she gave me – the greatest treasure of the lot, because it was free, and the oldest of them all.

    I’m not a cigar reviewer. I have never been bothered to figure out what other things cigars taste like. I’m more apt to inhale deeply the fragrance of a forest or rain on fresh-cut grass and think of the cigar to complement it. But there are other ways to express appreciation for these minor miracles of Man and Nature, and this is one.

    Thank you.

    The duty free cigar store at the Kuala Lumpur Airport had this on promotion last week and the sales person highly recommended it. She said that she had customers that swear by this cigar. I picked up a box of 12 and after smoking a couple and one with friend last night I am kicking myself for not taking the last box. This is by far my best smoke in a long time. I’m definitely going to look for this online and stock them up in my humidor.

    The Robusto Extra is a true Classic. Defiantly a bit prices, but I prefer it to any of the Cohiba Siglo line. I feel its one of the best cigars on the market.
