Altadis U.S.A.’s Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 features a blend of Mexican and Nicaraguan tobaccos and is inspired by the Spirit of Mexico. This handmade cigar’s blend was crafted by Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez and is described as a “harmonious symphony of earthiness, spiciness, cocoa and coffee.
“The packaging complements the cigar’s characteristics with a visual celebration of Mexican heritage to draw a connection with Mexican culture and its deep-rooted traditions,” says Olivia Saad, senior brand manager at Altadis U.S.A. “The stunning design, inspired by the iconic imagery of vibrant colors and ornate details, reflects the festive spirit of this beloved Mexican tradition.”
Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 features an extra-fermented San Andrés wrapper and carefully selected tobacco leaves grown in Nicaragua that is incorporated into the cigar’s binder and filler. This blend of tobacco combines to create a complex yet subtle premium cigar with notes of earth, coffee, anise and some spiciness on the finish. The finished cigar is slightly pressed. Trinidad Espiritu No. 3 will be available in five different sizes: Robusto, 5 x 50; Toro, 6 x 54; Magnum, 6 x 60; Belicoso, 6 1/8 x 52; and Fundador, 7 1/2 x 40. Suggested retail price per cigar ranges from $11.13 to $12.68 before applicable taxes.
This cigar is expected to release on October 31 in honor of the start of Día de Los Muertos, a Mexican holiday that lasts for several days that celebrates and remembers loved ones who have passed.
