    Characteristics Made by Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic, this is by far the best version of the Dominican-made Trinidad. With its Nicaraguan corojo wrapper and Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Peruvian filler, it is a mouth-filling smoke, full of rich, milk chocolate and leathery flavors that rival its Cuban counterpart. Insider’s Tip This was originally a limited-edition humidor chest containing 100 cigars of each of the three shapes—Robusto, Petite Robusto, and Toro—that was offered to the collector’s market. But an additional 300 brightly lacquered red boxes were also produced. Each group of 100 boxes contained 35 cigars of the same shape. The Toro remains a cigar to search for, as it ages extremely well. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
