Trinidad is named after the beautiful 16th Century city of La
Santísima Trinidad (The Holy Trinity), listed by UNESCO as a historical
monument, which is situated on Cuba's south coast.
Trinidad, as a Habano, dates back to 1969 but for many years, like
Cohiba, it was made only for gifts to foreign diplomats. Not until 1998
was it released for general sale and then only in small quantities.
There is only one size of Trinidad, the Fundador or Founder.
Although it resembles the Cohiba Lanceros in length and the finish of
its cap, it is unique because of two extra ring gauge points added to
its girth. It is made at El Laguito, the home of Cohiba, to its own
particular recipe of tobaccos selected from the Vuelta Abajo region.
The Fundador is ‘totalmente a mano, tripa larga' - totally hand made, long filler.
