The Trinidad Reyes is not one of your straight out of the box type cigars. These require a bit of ageing first. However, with a couple of weeks in the Humidor, I found this to be an excellent smoke, meaty and wonderful.
Appearance : Rating:
Occasionally, you come across a cigar with just the perfect chocolate color to it. I believe I have found one with this smoke.
Construction : Rating:
Very nice wrapper with an evenness to it all the way to the ring. Seems as if someone took their time with these.
Flavor : Rating:
The first third was all cocoa and wood. Very pleasant with only a very mild sting, just enough to get your attention. The second third came about and I think I detected a faint hint of cedar about it, just a tinge. The final third seemed to be the ultimate mix of the other flavors. I rarely state that a cigar is good from beginning to end, my sarcastic nature, but this one definitely made the team.
Value : Rating:
This is where my money is going when I want to restock my humidor.
Overall Rating : Overall Rating:
Wonderful smoke, start to finish. I would say this is that evening on the porch swing smoke. Very relaxing and calming in the overall flavor and sensation. Nevertheless, it would likely go well after virtually any meal and with a nice red wine.
