El Triunfador No.4 Cigar Review

This 5×48 stick features a dark brown oily slightly toothy wrapper with an even spongy give, triple cap and sweet cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful smoke production, medium-full bodied flavors of a slick, oily sweet pepper and leather with a creamy caramel like long finish. The first third burns quickly with great construction, bringing the body down to medium and dropping the sweetness. Flavors are light and smooth, with a nice zing through the finish. The 2nd third slows the burn a bit, turning down the sweetness further going to just a creamy leather. Ending at the hour mark, the last third brings back the caramel making it very smooth and slick, also adding a little touch of strength to the mix.

    Thanks for the review Ordered 5 and have enjoyed them enough to order a box. Scored a box for about $3 a stick. Great burn, good draw and flavors.

    Hey, Bryan. Have been meaning to pick up the El Triunfador Lancero, as you turned me on to lanceros after the Herrera Esteli and San Cristobal reviews (thanks for that!). Surprised to see that you smoked down the nub on this stick! A rare thing from your reviews, so far as I can tell…and sounds like there was a pretty cool caramel transition in that last 3rd. Will have to pick this up. Thanks again for your reivew…great as always.
