Today I am doing a review as I smoke
(normally I takes notes and do the review later), so this
may be a little different than other reviews you have seen
from me. I just cut and lit a Trident (7 x 50) which will
run you about $9 to $10. I have had the Sprite, Prince, and
Divine before and enjoyed them, so I am looking forward to
this being just as good. At the 10 minute mark, it is
starting off nice and bold, with hints of pepper.
The draw is great and it’s producing some
great thick white smoke. Since this is larger size, I don’t
have to worry about taking the massive (and beautiful) band
off just yet. At the 25 minute mark, this is going to be a
long smoke (and I have plenty of time, so this is good), I
am getting some strong pepper in the throat feeling – I
don’t know if that’s because I am just coming off a cold
where I laid in bed for 3 days straight or it’s just a
It’s something I enjoy but if you don’t like
that feeling, I wanted to make a note of it. At the 40
minute mark, my mouth is getting a little dry – Time for a
Lager draft. Still full bodied and the burn and draw is
still consistent and the flavors have warmed up nicely.
Really enjoying this one. At the half way point I finally
had to remove the band which revealed the smaller band
underneath it. You definitely want to have a drink around
with this one, as it does tend to dry your mouth out. The
flavor is consistent and the burn and draw have been dead
It is getting stronger as I go along and the
pepper has returned but not as “throaty” as it was earlier.
As the ¾ mark approaches, the Trident is the strongest of
the La Sirenas I have had so far, and the longest smoke. I
am about 90 minutes in and still have a good 30 mins left
and not much have changed since the half way.
I learned a few things from this review. One is that I
prefer to make small notes and do more reviews when I am
done and that the La Sirena line is quickly becoming one of
my favorites. I strongly would suggest you give one a try,
you won’t be disappointed.
