Paradox is the result of combining a San Andres Criollo '98 wrapper, Dominican Piloto binder, and lush Nicaraguan long-fillers. Soft, creamy and smooth, Paradox dishes out natural sweetness, spices, leather, and oak as an occasional note of almond enters the fray. Mellow nuances are the name of the game here, as Paradox remains medium-bodied and complex to the last puff.
note: The name Paradox isn't random. It represents Trinidad's first cigar to marry their traditional aspects of cigar making with a modern, hip feel.
“I recently smoked of these at my local 'gar shop and it whooped my butt! I like medium bodied smokes, my go to smoke is a brick house or perdomo 10th anniversary. I thought there was nothing medium about this dang thing. So, to me it was a full flavored beast. Gave me that buzz you get after your first smoke. The flavour was good, I cant say more than that because I was too busy trying to man-up and finish it. If you like full bodied smokes, give it a go. Hope that helps a little”

“I agree with the previous reviewer. This was advertised as a medium stick, and it was absolutely not, it was a full flavored cigar. I was not a big fan of it, it was overly spicy loaded with a peppery taste that overpowered anything that may have been there, not to say it was a bad cigar, but it was not something I would personally recommend....”

“Toro box pressed- excellent construction. No canoing. Perfect draw. Some spice and pepper but not overboard. I would say med-full. Not a powerhouse. I'm really liking this stick. Try one, I think you will like it!”

“This is my GO TO cigar for long drives in the states. out here its a favorite to just relax not as harsh as some i have and not a bold just right in the medium body realm. It is an awesome smoke even burn and great smooth draw love this stick an amazing choice in my opinion.”

“This stick is a gem. Nice peppery, leather and wood flavors. It is full of flavor but didn't give me the punch that I expect with those flavors. If you want to step up from your typical medium bodied cigar to a full then this would be a good buy.”
“Solid smoke. Easy draw, great construction, tons of smoke output, both from the foot, and on the draw. Definite woody notes, and creamy. Not complex, but enjoyable. Full flavored, medium body in my opinion. Not overwhelming at all. Got a 5 pack. Very fast burner. Good, but not sure if I would purchase again.”
