On the pre-light for the Trinidad Fundadores, the wrapper is light brown, and wrinkly with a well made pigtail cap. The aromas on the wrapper are spices, with an intense cedar, and sweet cedar present in the foot. The Trinidad band is a light gold, highlighted with reflective gold all placed onto a brown and gold background.
The initial draws on the Fundadores are quite tight, as I struggle to draw on the cigar. It opens up slightly by the end of the first third, but far too much resistance overall.
The Trinidad Fundadores 2017 release is a perfect example of a Cuban cigar that is too young to enjoy, but should be very good with a few years of aging. All the Fundadores I’ve smoked with 3+ years of age on them are excellent cigars with great complexity. This box will go to the back of my humidor and I will go back to check on their evolution in 6 – 8 month periods.
