eltriunf2 Today on we have two new reviews to share, beginning with the El Triunfador Lancero from Tatuaje and ending with La Aurora's 1495 Series Robusto. Keep reading to find out whether either of these is worth your hard-earned money.

Tatuaje El Triunfador Lancero

The El Triunfador line from Tatuaje was created to attract fans who tend to shy away from stogie powerhouses. Many of Tatuaje's offerings have the reputation of being quite strong, so the brand's owner, Pete Johnson, released the El Triunfador to try something new. El Triunfador means “winner” in English. Now, let's find out if it can actually live up to its name.

The El Triunfador Lancero, also referred to as the No. 6, measures 7 1/2x 38. Due to high demand, Tatuaje also offers the line in the following additional sizes: the 6 1/2x 42 No. 1 Corona, the 5 1/2x 52 No. 2 Robusto, the 5 x 46 No. 3 Corona Gorda, the 5 x 48 No. 4 Short Robusto, and the 4 x 42 No. 5 Corona Extra. The cigar's binder and filler is made from select Nicaraguan tobacco. Finishing off the El Triunfador is a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper and a pigtail cap. This Lancero is said to fall into the medium-bodied category.

Although the El Triunfador Lancero is not the prettiest stogie around, it does have some redeeming qualities. The pigtail cap is a nice touch, and its wrapper has a dark chocolate color with an oily sheen that is appealing. The cigar appears to be a bit rough, and there are a plenty of veins that are visible. A simple decorative band resides near the head. It's small and has the words Lancero and Triunfador printed in simple font. The brown and white colors used on the band blend in well with the dark wrapper. The cigar feels bumpy to the touch in certain areas, and it appears to be packed with plenty of tobacco. It has a cold taste similar to pepper, and a compost scent.


It may look a tad rough before lighting, but when being smoked, the El Triunfador is as smooth as can be. The draw is just right, and light-colored ash is produced. The burn stays even on its own until the end, and touch-ups are not necessary. The same holds true for any re-lighting. This lack of maintenance really allows for the full enjoyment of the cigar's flavors.
