The Bahia brand has been around since the cigar boom in the mid 1990’s and has been holding strong ever since. The Bahia Trinidad is a Nicaraguan puro crafted with a dark and oily Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper that’s been optimally fermented—tucked away for a cedar-nap for two years. The wrapper cloaks a blend of four-year-old Nicaraguan long-leaf Cuban seed tobaccos grown in the prime growing regions of Esteli and Condega. The end result is an aromatic, medium-bodied smoke with sweet tobacco flavors spiked with notes of cinnamon, cocoa and cedar. Look for a good draw and an even burn that produces a flaky snow white ash. After a great meal, enjoy this one for a good hour and a half with a full tawny port or a white rum.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
