Tobacos El Triunfador No.4

Recently I smoked a compilation blend from Pete Johnson and Pepin Garcia called the Tabacos El Triunfador. This is an average looking stick at 5 x48 with no bells or whistles and a band that is somewhat understated with a neat red and gold embossed vintage look.

Tabacos El Triunfador cigar review

No bells or whistles here, just a good old-fashioned rustic cigar.

I don’t mind that too much, of course I love a cigar you can’t take your eyes off of, but how does the saying go, you can’t judge a stogato by its wrapper right? The pre-light draw was nice and the flavors were of fermented tobacco and dark chocolate.

Moving along to the toasting. I noticed that the toast on this cigar was a little quick, which plays a role later on. The draw was super easy, which I usually like but sometimes can be a bad thing in this case with a quick light, and easy draw I noticed the El Triunfador burned fast and hot causing a very slight harshness to the smoke, nothing overpowering. And when you could control your temptation to take a premature puff, the harshness would go away. That aside, the flavors were full of rich, old world spices and slight pepper on the finish. These are some of my favorite flavors when it comes to cigars.

The draw produced a generous amount of thick creamy smoke that coated my mouth very nicely. This was a great smoke for the price range the only flaws were the semi-harshness to the tobacco and the over heating, which can be tamed. I would keep a few on hand for those days you need a quick spicy smoke.

Tabacos El Triunfador Review cigar rating and review

I smoked my El Triunfedor at Starbuck’s, with a tall caramel macchiato, the combination was very pleasant. Pair this cigar with a sweet drink and the combination will work great together.

Would I smoke his cigar again?
Any time I’m looking for a flavorful smoke without breaking the bank, I will reach for one of these. It’s great to have cigars with real taste that you can afford to stock up on.
