Quick Smoke: El Triunfador SODO

9 Jan 2011

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.”


This limited edition version of Pete Johnson’s El Triunfador is made for Seattle-based J&J Cigars. The corona especial (bottom) is an inch and a half shorter than the original Triunfador lancero (top) and, depending on your source, is either the exact same or a slight variation of the original blend. It features coffee and strong cedar notes in a full-bodied, well-constructed smoke. No matter the particulars of the blend, it certainly is very similar in flavor to the lancero;  that’s not an unfavorable comparison since the original is a most enjoyable smoke.

Verdict = Buy.

    I paid nine bucks for the lancero locally, and no matter how hard I tried, it only lasted about 30 minutes. Big dollars for a quick and tasty….but nine bucks?!

    I like supporting local- and Seattle might be about as local as we can get sometimes! I’ve heard similar things about the Triunfador in the shop.
