Trinidad Cuban Cigars, a former executive of Habanos S.A. Adriano Martinez, gave testimony in Min Ron Nee’s Illustrated Encyclopedia of Post-Revolution Havana Cigars. Trinidad Cuban cigar brand was first produced in 1969 at the El Laguito factory in Havana.
It well reported that the “Trinidad” brand of Cuban cigars was first produced in 1969 by the El Laguito factory in Havana. The brand became very popular in the 1990s, and Avelion Kara was the former manager of the El Laguito factory. He died in 2009.
Trinidad Cuban Cigars launched publicly in 1998 in Havana, and the first release only came in in one size, the Fundador. Three new sizes were also launched at a black-tie dinner in London in 2003. They were; Trinidad Reyes, Trinidad Coloniales, and Trinidad Robusto Extra. Habanos S.A. added Trinidad Vigia and Trinidad Fundadores later.
The brand happens to be one of the black sides of Cuba’s production of cigar brands. Although it appeared to be very popular after its public release in 1998, its light became dim in 2012 after various brand sizes were removed. Trinidad is presently packaged with a signature pigtails cap.
The brand is classified as a niche brand by Habanos SA and it has a reasonable market share. Trinidad presents in medium strength cigars and tobaccos from the premium Vuelta Abajo region are used for its production. A non-Cuban brand of cigar is also known to bear the same name as Trinidad.
