The release of Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2, Altadis U.S.A., in mid-January celebrates the spirit of Brazil, crafted with tobacco grown in Brazil and Nicaragua and wrapped in a Brazilian Arapiraca leaf.
The blend is the latest collaboration of Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez.
“With Trinidad Espiritu Series No.1, we took you on a journey to the ‘golden years’ of the Caribbean,” Nodal, who is head of product development at Tabacalera USA, said in a press release. “With Trinidad Espiritu Series No. 2 we are taking you to the heart and soul of the exotic, flavorful country of Brazil.”
The Trinidad Espiritu Series No.1 released in 2019 was a Nicaraguan puro and came in five vitolas.
