Trinidad Paradox by Altadis

At the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, Altadis unveiled its new Trinidad Paradox blend.  This cigar follows the hot trend in the industry around the use of San Andres (Mexican) wrapper.   It makes the first San Andres wrapper to be brought into the Trinidad family.

For Altadis (the parent company of the Trinidad line), the use of Mexican wrapper is nothing new.  San Andres wrapper on cigars such as the A. Turrent Triple Play and A. Turrent Puro Corojo.

Here are the pariculars:

Blend Profile

In the marketing brochure. Altadis describes the Trinidad Paradox as “Made with a Cuban heritage Criollo seed wrapper grown in the lush and verdant fields of  San Andres.”  In a recent article on the origins of Criollo-seed that we published, Steve Saka discusses how Criollo seed can be traced back to the San Andres region of Mexico.  In this case it is a variant with the San Andres Criollo ’98 wrapper.
