|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.
Here are the pariculars:
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.
Blend: San Andres Criollo 98
Binder: Dominican Piloto
