bahtrinpic2 We have a couple of reviews on smooth, medium-bodied cigars today for those of you who feel like unwinding. Up first is the Bahia Trinidad No. 2 Belicoso, with the Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente Maduro on deck.

Bahia Trinidad No. 2 Belicoso

With all the increasing taxes on tobacco products, smoking bans, and more, it really seems as if everyone is trying to rain on the cigar enthusiast’s parade. When you combine high cigar prices with a less than ideal economy, it can get difficult to enjoy your smoking hobby. Luckily, the Bahia Trinidad line is very affordable. I am really hoping I enjoy this Trinidad No. 2 I’m about to smoke, because I’ll take a price break any way I can get it.

The Bahia Trinidad No. 2 Belicoso measures 6 ½ x 54. Other sizes in the line include the 5 ½ x 52 Pancho, 6 1/8 x 48 Short Churchill, 6 ¾ x 48 Churchill, and 7 x 54 Corona Gigante. The Trinidad is a Nicaraguan puro, meaning all of its components come from the Central American nation. Both the filler and binder are made up of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobacco that’s aged for four years. A two-year aged Nicaraguan Criollo Seed wrapper completes the composition. In terms of strength, the Trinidad is listed as being medium-bodied.

Right off the bat, the Trinidad No. 2 makes a nice first impression. The cigar has a tropical aura to it, mostly due to its large orange band. The Trinidad name also helps to put such a vision into my head as well. The cigar’s Criollo wrapper is oily and light brown in color. There’s very minimal veining, and the overall appearance is smooth. The cap is done to perfection as well. The cigar has a little give to it when pressed, but there are no true soft spots. Before lighting, I pick up a cedar scent and a cold taste of sweet tobacco.

After lighting the Trinidad No. 2, the cigar burns decently. The ash is dark and somewhat flaky. The draw is nice and easy. There’s not a ton of smoke being produced, but I have no major complaints. A couple minor touch-ups are needed, as is a re-light. I do have to give Bahia a thumbs up here for the very pleasant aroma that the cigar emits.
