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.
"From beginning to end this cigar performed like a rock star. The transitions in flavors from section to section kept my interest and the flavors were exactly what I look for in a cigar. Cocoa, baking spices, leather, and salted nuts all worked in unison to create a truly enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend this cigar to anyone. Thanks for the chance to smoke it!" -Kevin J. (maninblack77)
"This was a strong cigar from the very first puff and they had me a bit concerned. Thankfully, the strength gradually lessened and allowed me to enjoy the power and not overwhelm my palate. At the finish, this cigar was firmly in my wheelhouse and had me ready to light another. For an experienced smoker, I’d recommend this…for a rookie, I’d be cautious. Personally, I loved it!" -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)
