Trinidad Espiritu Series No.2
Of course, that means Brazilian tobacco!
The long-filler blend is both Nicaraguan and Brazilian leaf. The outside, though, pays proper respect to the South American nation, with a nice rustic Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper.
The flavors of the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 cigars will be familiar to those who have enjoyed Brazilian blends in the past, like, say Drew Estate’s Liga Privada No. 9, which featured Brazilian Mata Fina tobacco as a binder. Here, you’ll get similar notes of charred meat and earthy dark chocolate – it’s a nice hearty profile.
As the series progresses, we will likely enjoy blends built around the national spirit of different tobacco-producing countries. Perhaps these will one day be nice to compare alongside the CAO World Sampler, with cigars built around tobacco from a number of different nations. For now, we’re enjoying the trip that Trinidad is taking us on in this second installment. If you’re a fan of lively flavors, this cigar is a nice little pickup.
Please enjoy the Trinidad Espiritu Series No.2 cigars at your leisure.
