Trinidad La Trova (cdh)
The Trinidad La Trova first Habanos cigar of “Cañonazo Especial” vitola since the Cohiba 1966, a Limited Edition from 2011, meaning that it is a cigar that will last for about 1.5 hours.
Despite being still a young cigar (The box we smoked was from Nov 2017), it smokes great and has lots of potential.
Trinidad La Trova LCDH comes in a Semi Boite Nature Box of 12 cigars with Habanos Packing Code SBN-VW-n-6-n-12
Length: 166mm (6 5/9 inches)
Ring gauge: 52
Shape: Cañonazo Especial / Double Robusto
The construction of the La Trova is sublime with no soft spots, well packed from the head to the feet. The wrapper is silky smooth, with a great looking Colorado – claro light brown color, as you would expect from any Trinidad. Despite being a long cigar, there is only a few amount of tiny veins running down the wrapper, and it is complemented with the traditional Trinidad pig-tail at the head. Being a La Casa del Habano exclusive release, the La Trova sports a secondary LCDH band.
Before lighting up
Upon opening the box, a very distinctive smell of fresh hay reaches the nostrils. The wrapper smells of sweet cedar with hints of raisin at cold. The cold draw is good, and tastes of light cedar.
Easy to light up, as expected the Trinidad La Trova burns perfectly throughout. No issues with the draw or the burn. The ashes build up for a good inch and a half then falls off. Every puff releases a voluminous cloud of thick velvety smoke.
