trinmaduro1 Today’s reviews feature a couple of Maduro wrapped cigars from Altadis USA.  We will kick things off with the Trinidad Maduro Robusto and finish off the day with the Siglo Limited Reserve Maduro VI.

Trinidad Maduro Robusto

If you are unfamiliar with the Trinidad brand, it comes to us from the tobacco giant Altadis USA. The Trinidad Maduro line was produced as a follow-up to the original Trinidad line to offer cigar smokers something a bit bolder. Does it follow through on that promise, or is the Trinidad Maduro a dud? I’ll be giving one of the line’s Robusto offerings a try to find out for myself.

The Trinidad Maduro Robusto that measures 5 x 55. Altadis USA offers four other choices in the line, including the 4 1/4 x 54 Petite Robusto, or Rat Tail, 6 x 55 Toro, 6 1/8 x 54 Belicoso, and the 7 x 58 Churchill. The cigar begins with a filler blend of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Peru. The binder is of the Ecuadorian Sumatra variety. The highlight of the cigar’s composition is blackened Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. In terms of strength, the Trinidad Maduro is listed as being full-bodied in nature.

Taking a quick look at the Trinidad Maduro Robusto reveals that it is a very attractive cigar without too many frills in terms of its presentation. The Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper is dark chocolate in color and oily. Only a few very minimal veins are visible, and the cigar appears to be smooth and well-constructed overall. It is also very firm to the touch and lacks any true soft spots. The decorative band is rather unassuming and showcases the Trinidad name in black and gold. The colors provide a nice contrast to the dark wrapper. Just before lighting, I give the Trinidad Maduro a quick whiff and detect some spice. The cold taste, on the other hand, is chocolaty and has me ready to light this baby up.

Once lit, the Trinidad Maduro Robusto exhibits a decent burn. The draw is just right, and some long ash that is light gray in color is produced. The burn does stray at times and requires a couple of touch-ups. One re-light is needed. There is a nice volume of thick smoke that fills the air.
