Trinidad cigars were personal gifts distributed by Fidel Castro to diplomats and visitors. It was a relatively unknown cigar brand until the late 1990s when it was finally made available in a commercial auction.
In the last 20 years Trindad has added hit after hit of tasty sticks to the export line, such as the superb Trinidad Coloniales.
The Coloniales is an elegant, mild cigar with buttery, cedary, and floral tones and a dash of black tea. Capped with the trademark perilla or pig’s tail, the Coloniales are an excellent staple in your humidor.
Trinidad Coloniales Overview
This well-balanced Robusto has mild notes of cream, cedar, and flowers. It is an excellent choice for an inexperienced Robusto smoker or as a slightly lighter smoke for earlier in the day.
With a length of 5.2” and a ring gauge of 44, this is a medium-length smoke with light and delicate flavors that are complex but not overpowering.
Smoking a Trinidad Coloniales
The Coloniales is a well-constructed stick with a pigtail cap. The draw is even and easy, however the cigar benefits from a smaller punch than usual.
The first third produces billowing and fragrant smoke that is not bitter but has a full bouquet nevertheless, with a pleasant nuttiness coming through the primary overtones of chocolate. The retrohale is mild enough to roll around your mouth and delivers a lovely earthy flavor.
In the second third the flavors deepen and are joined by mild citrus notes and herbaceous basil. By the final third, the cigar is at its best, with a lovely cedary and creamy taste with a hint of dark tea and cocoa nibs coming through at the end.
Trinidad Coloniales Cigar Value
The Coloniales hold up well, create minimal mess when smoking, and can even be put down upon occasion without the danger of going out. However, they need to be kept in a humidor and will peel and dry out if not kept in one.
Trinidad Coloniales Experience
This is an excellent cigar for a late morning or mid-afternoon smoke. With mild heat and medium spiciness it can be handled without too much trouble by a beginner. A delightful smoke with creamy, nutty, and flowery flavors predominating.
What a great cigar. Smooth and lots of smoke flavores of coffee a subtle sweetness & leather make this an anytime cigar.
I bought my own sampler pack consisting of Hoyo Epicure #2, Especial, H Upman Magnum 46, Partagas E #2, Bolivar Royal Corona, and Trinidad Coloniales. They were delivered in the time promised and were well secured inside the packaging. Look and smell great. Put them in the humidor and will smoke after they rest a bit. Super impressed with the quality and service provided. Will be ordering again very soon
The Trinidad Coloniales is incredible. Smooth as silk, what a smoke
The delivery could be quicker but the cigars are so good I can’t wait. And I will be ordering the same order in the next 2 weeks.
I ordered Trinidad and Partagas. when I opened the packing box I noticed that the yellow poly seal bag was nor taped shut like they always have been in the past. the self seal tab om the bag was loosely sealed (not sealed tightly as it always has been in past shipments. when I opened the bag I found both boxes did not have shrink wrap which they have always had in the past. I was concerned about the lack of humidity control so I put them in my humidor right away and wanted to check with you first. every box I have received from you in the past has always been enclosed in shrink wrap and the poly bag is completely sealed and warped tightly in clear tape making it impossible to open without cutting it open. this way I always had confidence that y cigars had not been tampered with and that they were maintaining perfect humidification. please give me your feedback?
Great service as always!
I continue to be impressed with the H. Upmann brand. I recently ordered their Connoisseur No 1 cigars and am very pleased with results. They are a bit smaller (5″ / 48 gauge) than I usually choose but they are perfect when time is short or you want a lighter taste. The construction was flawless and the burn was even throughout the smoke. The firstthird was grassy and the second third provided better depth of flavor with a very slight hint of wood. It demonstrated a consistently smooth draw and produced plenty of smoke. I will definitely order more and always have a supply in my humido
Excellent cigar. This one is a must try and will be a constant in my humidor. Fast shipping as always!
Been smoking these for 10 years. They are mild to medium smoke, well constructed, with a medium draw. I tend to smoke these slowly so time commitment is about 45″ to an hour. On lighting, slightly harsh, but mellows out quickly.
My other half that I bought them for, says they are great! They were a great Christmas present for him!
Delicious! Would recommend
Of all the cuban, Cohiba and Trinidad to me seems to be top tier. This is my favorite Trinidad for the cost. For about $10 per stick, the sweet spot is amazing. Not much aging needed, ready to smoke out of the box.
luxury cubans is simply the BEST supplier of cuban cigars on the web. Their in house robusto may not match HdM Épicure 1 nor Partagas D-4, still it remains a pretty good smoke.
First time ordering from luxury cubans, delivery was a little bit longer than the 10 shipping period but the cigars arrived in great shape and are delicious! Will definitely purchase again! The Trinidad’s are a fantastic smoke.
These cigars arrived quickly and in perfect condition. A refined, velvety smoke that can be unjoyed anytime of day.
shipping & delivery both reliable as usual
with the cigars, better than expected.
consistency in rounded flavor, elegant aroma & burn all suit to a tee.
if the remaining sticks prove more of the same,
am inclined to rate 4 “plus”
So fresh and packed with care, this cigar was dynamite, Can’t wait to place my next order with luxury cubans.
Items came in great condition, a little longer than expected but arrived in a nice humidified pouch. Will be buying again.
Je suis très content de ce produit, même si le cigare arrive un peu sec et demande à être réhydraté…
This box of fine Trinidad’s needed a few weeks untouched to really start to shine. When they recovered from humidity change shock they balanced out and presented a nice medium bodied earthy flavor and a beautiful draw and burn. I’d like another box of 24 soon. Can’t keep my hands off.
one of the best cigars of the world
Flavourful, creamy, smooth, slow even burn. Will try again.
Shipped safe and secure. Will definitely order from these guys again soon.
Great Cigar! I was overly impressed by how much care was put into my order. Everything was in tact and secure when I got it. I have made luxury Cuban Cigars my number 1 cigar company!
Shipped safe and secure. Will definitely order from these guys again soon.
Very nice cigar! Box and cigars arrived in perfect condition. I smoked one but will age the rest. Great Cuban flavor. Wood and honey with a slight fruity flavor. Very complex. Razor sharp burn. A keeper for sure.
Yes everything was excellent.
luxury cubans 5 stars for fast delivery great communication Cherrie a pleasure doing business with you….. .
The Trinidad….4 stars….this was the second Trinidad I’ve had… 1st one was in Cancun at Casa del Habano.
This cigar smelled delicious and had a great cold draw (perfect)….the burn was near perfect with a few times a little off on one side but no touch up needed.
I’m not good at describing flavors but I’ll give it a try..
First third was smooth slightly sweet, a little grassy and nice smoke output.
The second third was much the same with some added cream and a faint marshmallow flavor…
The final 3rd got a little stronger flavors with a little coffee note….
It was good but I’m saving 5 stars for the one that makes me say WOW..
Great cigar!! Arrived in a timely manner!!
Once again luxury cubans was perfect! Prompt delivery and excellent quality.
The Trinidad’s were super smooth and creamy. I smoked two since delivery, the rest will age in my humidor.
My favorite Cuban.
