The first time I ever heard of the brand Trinidad was approximately 5 years ago while reading my first cigar book - I had bought it and felt the necessity to go through it. The image is still engraved in my memory. In one column was a big list of the most common and "global" Cuban cigar brands, such as Montecristo, Partagas, Romeo Y Julieta, etc. The second column had a smaller list of the "multi-local" brands which included Punch, Bolivar, Robaina, etc. However the third column was reserved for the "niche" Cuban cigar brands in which Trinidad was part along with Cuaba and San Cristobal. I felt the urge to get my hands on and to smoke one of these brands ASAP. I had only one plan the next day; Go and check out the local cigar shop in Ottawa, Canada. The shop opened at 11:00am and there I was - at 11:15am - already seeking the uncommon yet exquisite cigar.
