Quick Smoke: El Triunfador (Original Blend)

25 Apr 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Before Tatuaje creator Pete Johnson released his new El Triunfador line, he was already making a cigar by very same name. Unlike the newer version, the original Triunfador (and Pete says he’ll continue to make it) features a dark, oily broadleaf wrapper and comes in only one size: a classic lancero (7.5 x 38). The cigar starts out with earth and meaty flavors with char. As it evolves, the well-constructed lancero reveals coffee and leather notes along with sweet honey undertones.

Verdict = Buy.
