Trill is a term used to describe someone who is well respected, coming from a combination of the words “true” and “real”. Trill is wonderfully brilliant mosaic of tobaccos chosen from Jochi Blanco’s private growing fields. Villigers Cigars North America’s is utilizing blends of select tobaccos for Trill.
The Trill Habano has a very rich, oily brown wrapper with some noticeable tooth and veins. Overall, a great appearance.
1st quarter: A very smooth draw produced a lot of creamy smoke. It started off with plenty of flavor right away, and you will catch a lot of spice through the nose. It has a very rich, sweet aroma that was consistent through to the palate. 2nd quarter: An excellent and incredibly even burn provided for an effortless smoking experience. The body continued to build throughout the smoke along with a medium texture. Spice began to develop further on the palate and continued through the nose. 3rd quarter: The Trill Habano came into the fullness of its medium body character and was packed with great flavor. In this portion, the spices were toned down which resulted in a very enjoyable smoking profile. Beautiful white ash was developed along the journey. 4th quarter: A slow and even burn held on to a long white gray ash. The balance of creaminess, spice and earthy notes liberated my palate. This cigar culminated into a nearly full body with a long, favorable finish.
The Trill Habano balanced sweet notes with earthiness and creaminess. It offers very pleasant aromas with hints of cedar. It has a truly intriguing character packed with rich smooth flavors. Overall, it is very well made with great construction and an amazing burn – a perfectly balanced medium to full body cigar.
