This weekend was beautiful down here in sunny Texas.Â I had the coffee on Saturday morning and needed a good smoke to top it off.Â I found a Trinidad Belicoso that I had for a long time in my humi.Â Â I believe it had around 3 years or so of age.Â I have only had a couple other Trinidad’s before so this was going to be a new experience.
The cigar was an attractive 3 country blend and smelled of grass and hay.Â The wrapper had a couple of large veins as you can see from the pictures.Â The burn was good for the first half but started to run a little on me, maybe due to the veins.Â I smoked this cigar in the morning which turned out to be a small mistake as it was a lot more full bodied than I had anticipated.Â My head had started spinning a little by the half way mark, it could have also been the 3 cups of coffee as well.
The cigar had some great flavors of leather and earth and had a great balance to it.Â Every puff had a nice strong but smooth flavor, which I’m sure had to do with the aging.Â I would smoke this cigar again but in this price range I would rather smoke a Tatuaje Unicos or Don Pepin Garcia Serie jj for a few bucks less.
I apologize for the pictures, it was really bright outside.
I am the Chief Editor of In The Humidor and have been running this site since 2007!Â I enjoy a great cigar with friends and just hanging around the house.Â I have 3 beautiful daughters and a wonderful wife, we live in the Dallas, Tx area.Â I also enjoy a good bourbon, craft beer, and absolutelyÂ love the ocean and beach.
