    Wow: another great looking cigar… for which I will have no time! My collection is growing faster than my time available (“addiction” isn’t just for Vitamin N)

    Sounds like a great cigar. Too bad it’ll probably cost 75%-100% more in the states.

    I saw this brand when last in Mexico. Did not recognize it and ignored it. I’ll be back in Mexico next week and will certainly now look for this cigar. Thanks for the great review.

    I waited with bated breath for the Robusto T to arrive in Singapore. I had 3 now, and they were simply extraordinary. The Trinidad Robusto Extra has always had a special place in my heart, but there is always the problem of it being too long a smoke sometimes. The Robusto T is the perfect solution.

    Can’t wait for these babies to age a year or 2.

    These are affordable sticks that are readily on the market. Its almost like a dream. The priceless part is I already have two boxes of the RASS. For the price and quality it has to be deal of the year.

    These are rarely found in Romania(as like most good cigars), but when i catch one of these i won’t let it slip by…
    Buuuut… In my opinion, by the look of it, i’d say the quality/price ratio cannot beat Ramons Specially Selected, i’ve smoked a couple of these from 2 different stores, and it was an incredible smoke. After smoking the Trinidad i will return with a new comment.

    I m always a Trinidad guy..beginning with Reyes to Coloniales and thoroughly enjoyed them. I had just acquired and smoked the T…although it’s fresh from the box it was great. It ll be marvellous in few months…

    These have long been on my list to try but every time I look at the price I think ‘next time’.

    Someone gave me one that had been brutally treated. The wrapper was torn at the foot and had blotchy patches where it seemed to have come in contact with fluid I could only hope had been distilled water. I lit it with caution and scepticism – and was again stunned by the excellence of this cigar. The quality of the construction was such that the burn was almost unaffected by the wrapper tear, and the flavours were still as rich and elegant as Trinidad can be. Surely one of the best robustos in the world.

    I picked up a box online after falling in love with the robusto extra and i must say i have been quite disappointed with them. They were harsh and sour and i thought that maybe i should have let them age a bit longer in my humidor and so i did that. 6 months on and they still leave a bitter taste in my mouth. I picked up the last one with trepidation as there’s nothing i hate most than a disappointing smoke… and i was. Sigh… i’d like to give this cigar another shot but am fearful.

    @B.I.G.
    It is supposed to be discontinued in 2012. If I were you, I’d stock up :)

    These are genuinely addictive, to quote a colleague of mine after smoking his first Robustos T (who I sourced half a dozen for). I smoked, one of those Trinidads on Saturday, it was so good, I had another one on Sunday. I always have a box, and am now getting seriously worried, considering Trinidad have stopped producing them

    Hi there – I had this one last week & immediately jumped among those very best. Tasty, slowly burning (when you act. smoke slowly to enjoy it), no issues of any kind what so ever – opposite to it.

    Really did like it very much, even considering its rather huge price here in my country (we are talking about some 20 to 21 US$ with the current rates …) /

    Gen. note: Trinis are – from my perspective of course – generally LOVELY (though expensive, yes!) cigars imho … & the very new model: i.e. VIGÍA …, IS currently on the VERY TOP of my list of favourites … though it is quite tough to get it here atm (have 2 pcs remaining in my humi & no chance to buy new ones @ regional LCDH as they are out of stock atm …), these are simply EXCELLENT to me …

    So are these Robu Ts, though if my infos are correct, the production thereof has been either postponed or completely discontinued, either or, both are sad facts.

    Great experience, a gift from a friend. However, for some reason, this one knocked my socks off completely – nicotine kick was so strong, I felt woozy for a few hours afterwards…was quite comical…

    This is my go-to cigar. I’m having one right at this very moment with a neat Lagavulin 16.

    I should be off the internet, enjoying it on the patio without distraction, but something about reading your review while smoking something I’ve had so many times helped improve the experience.
