Trinidad Vigia cigars have only recently become available in these very smart-looking tubes. Trinidad Cigars are named, not after the country, but the 16th century city of La Santisima Trinidad, which translates literally as “The Holy Trinity”. The city is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The brand was created in 1969. Much like Cohiba,Trinidad Cigars were originally only given away to visiting diplomats and dignitaries and it wasn’t until 1998 that small quantities were released for sale to the general public.
Initially there was only one size, the Fundadores but now (2016) the range consists of just 4 vitola. The Fundadores, Coloniales, Vigia and Reyes. The Vigia is a Trinidads concession to the modern trend for shorter, thicker cigars. These are a nice short, thick cigars, indeed they are the the heaviest girth to be found on any Trinidad cigar, and feature their trademark pigtail finish. They are now considered, by many, to be “the” luxury Cuban Cigar brand excepting Cohiba’s Behike perhaps.
Trinidad Cigars are a distinctive blend of tripa -filler- and capote -binder- selected from the Vuelta Abajo zone, making them unique and highly exclusive.
