Cigars Trinidad Fundadores – review
For my tasting review I have a few vitolas Trinidad Fundadores from a box dated 2011, in order to finally proudly introduce this cigar to selective smokers. I should share the best, instead of keeping it only to myself. :)
Nicely executed cigar, with its trademark pigtail, has a silky smooth wrapper of a warm light-honey classic claro. With the way it looks it almost prepares your receptors to its unique flavour profile: delicate honey, pollen and floral tones.
Apple, fresh alder, dried fruits. The cold aroma is very delicate.
The cigar has a perfect draw. The beginning is fresh, lightly-woody, with tender aroma of alder logs. As usual, this cigar strikes you with its rare beauty of the flavour. The wonderful cold smoke gives you delicate but delicious notes of: white toasts, delicate flower honey, pollen, kid leather and warm milk. The aftertaste of every draw is nutty (Brazilian nut, pine nut). Fundadores are like high art, they are like a classic symphonic masterpiece. This cigar is fine, both visually and in organoleptic way. The beginning is soft, the fortaleza is not high.
The noble wrapper enriches the bouquet of flavours with its own warm tones.
The white toasts remain the base of the flavour combination. Further on I can catch more pronounced notes of pollen, then some delicate hints of soil and pine needles. Everything is fine and pleasant.
