Providencia Cigars has announced the launch of its third line, Trinitas. It joins the company’s other two offerings, El Padre and El Santo.

The cigar is designed to be the boldest of the trio, with a Mexican San Andrés ligero wrapper covering a Nicaraguan binder, with a ligero laden filler that uses tobacco from two growing regions in Nicaragua and two in Honduras, according to Jim Faber, co-founder of Providencia Cigars.

It is being released in a single 6 1/2 x 52 double torpedo vitola, priced at $12 per cigar. They are offered in either 10-count boxes of 11-count bundles, both priced at $120 on the company’s website. Production is being handled by the Javier Mendoza’s Alianza Cigars factory in Danlí, Honduras, which is also known by the name La Pequena Vega.  Mendoza also owns tobacco fields in the Trojes region of the country, according to the company’s website.

The name is a nod to the Faber’s faith, which was tested when he was the target of an attempted kidnapping in Honduras during the founding days of the company. The company has produced 250 boxes and 200 bundles of Trinitas for a total run of 4,700 cigars, and is currently debating whether or not that will be it for the line or to extend production into a more regular offering.

The company formally launched in 2016 in Fort Worth, Texas by Faber and business partners Raymond Zinar and Reed Grafke. It is currently based in Keller, Texas.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
