When the Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 1 arrived last year, the plan was for it to be the first in a trio. Now, Altadis U.S.A. has announced that the sophomore Espiritu release will arrive next January.

The Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 will use a Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from Brazil and Nicaragua. Like the first release, it is being made by AJ Fernandez.

It is offered in the same five vitolas as the original Espiritu, though the Robusto and Toro sizes are slightly different in ring gauge.

  • Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 Robusto (5 x 50) — $9.90 (Box of 20, $198)
  • Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 Toro (6 x 54) — $10.15 (Box of 20, $203)
  • Trinidad Espiritu Seires No. 2 Magnum (6 x 60) — $10.65 (Box of 20, $213)
  • Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 Belicoso (6 1/8 x 52) — $10.40 (Box of 20, $208)
  • Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 Fundador (7 1/2 x 40) — $10.90 (Box of 20, $218)

“With Trinidad Espiritu Series No.1, we took you on a journey to the ‘golden years’ of the Caribbean,” said Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA. “With Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 we are taking you to the heart and soul of the exotic, flavorful country of Brazil.”
