Trinidad Lost Blends Now Found in Stores


It may be called a lost blend, but the latest release from Altadis USA’s Trinidad brand can now be found on retailer shelves.

The Trinidad Lost Blends was announced in late February as a limited release that had been tucked away in the company’s cedar room. It uses a Java Island shade grown wrapper, a Dominican Olor binder, and a filler blend of Dominican Olor, Dominican Piloto and Connecticut broadleaf tobaccos. The company calls the blend rich and powerful, with notes of sweet spice, roasted nuts, rich tobacco and decadent caramel that recall the original blend that made the Trinidad name known across the world.



It is being released in two vitolas, a 6 1/8 x 54 belicoso and 5 3/4 x 52 Salomon, each size coming in a 50-count box similar to the one pictured. The company has not confirmed pricing, other than to say that it was expected to be between $10-12 per cigar., who received the cigar this week, has the Salomon priced at $462.50 per box and $9.25 per single.

Trinidad lost blend. Isn’t burning right but still has a great flavor profile.

About the author

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
