Altadis U.S.A. released the Trinidad Espiritu in July of 2019. Now, over a year later, they are releasing a followup cigar in a new blend, Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2. The original Espiritu actually had Series No. 1 on the band, but that kind of went under the radar. The original scored a 91 in our blind test.
This new version, Series No. 2 celebrates the spirit of Brazil and is a collaboration between Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez. The blend uses tobacco grown in Brazil and Nicaragua and including a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper.
“With Trinidad Espiritu Series No.1, we took you on a journey to the ‘golden years’ of the Caribbean,” explains Nodal, who is Head of Product Development at Tabacalera USA. “With Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 we are taking you to the heart and soul of the exotic, flavorful country of Brazil!”
“This fantastic cigar, featuring Brazilian Arapiraca leaf as the wrapper, will deliver an experience that AJ Fernandez and I are extremely proud of,” Nodal notes.
The Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 will be available January of 2021 and comes in the following sizes: Robusto: 50 x 5 $9.90, Toro: 54 x 6 $10.15, Belicoso: 52 x 6 1/8 $10.40, Magnum: 60 x 6 $10.65, Fundador: 40 x 7 1/2 $10.90. All are boxes of 20 cigars.
