Cigar Review: Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro

Initial Thoughts:

At the request of a viewer on YouTube, user “Don de Puros”, today I'm smoking the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro. I think this might be my first-ever Trinidad cigar, and it's visually very impressive. The wrapper leaf looks great and it has some slight texture to it. However, the veins are dehydrated and pressed, and this cigar looks very tasty.

After cutting the end and giving it a torch, the initial flavors are very spicey. The Nicaraguan wrapper delivers tons of spice, and I suspect that this cigar is not for the faint of heart. The draw has started off very well, and I've got high hopes for the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro.

Final Thoughts:

While there were a couple of issues, overall, the construction of the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro was very good.

The flavors of both spicey and sweet Nicaraguan tobaccos come through clearly, but the sweet is more apparent on the retrohale. The draw was great, but there were some spots where the burn was uneven.

Although this cigar would benefit from at least six months of aging in a well-humidified humidor, the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 Toro was still deserving of a CigarScore 4.
