eltriunfadorpic1 Today we are going to pick up where we left off last time in discussing new cigar releases from various brands since the beginning of 2010 in an effort to keep you up to speed on some new offerings that can possibly make their way into your humidors.

El Triunfador Line

Fans of the previously released El Triunfador cigar will be happy to know that Tatuaje Cigars owner Pete Johnson plans to expand the cigar’s production into an entire line coming in March of 2010. The El Triunfador was offered to the public in very limited quantities in 2008. The cigar, made by legendary Don Pepin Garcia, was a hit but left many cigar fans yearning for more. Even more of a tease, El Triunfador was also released with very limited information about its contents initially.

All of that has changed now, as the El Triunfador’s popularity earned it enough clout to deserve its own line. Although its first introduction to the public came in only a 7.5x38 Lancero size, the soon to be released line will come in five available sizes to suit various smokers’ needs. You can expect more of a medium-bodied profile as well. As far as the composition goes, the El Triunfador line will have a Nicaraguan filler that will be slightly tweaked from the original Lancero. It’s also expected to come with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, which is different from the Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that came with the original Lancero. Keep a little room in your upcoming budget, as the El Triunfador line is expected to retail for around $6 to $9 per single.

Alec Bradley Family Blend

Yet another expansion of a previously released cigar is occurring, this time within the Alec Bradley brand. The Family Blend was a cigar offered in only one size, a 5.5x50 Robusto. In March of this year, those who enjoyed this previous offering will have the choice of purchasing it in four new sizes. The four new sizes run the gamut from small to large, and will measure 4.5x58, 6x54, 6 1/8x52, and 7x50. There is no need to fear that the new sizes will differ from the original’s recipe, as Bradley’s President, Alan Rubin, promises that they will be composed of the same ingredients that made the Robusto popular.

Speaking of the Family Blend’s ingredients, it will come with a filler blend of tobacco from Nicaragua and Honduras, a binder from Indonesia, and a wrapper also from Honduras that is finished off with a Cuban pigtail cap. You can expect more of a medium-bodied profile from these sticks. In case you were wondering about how it received its name, the Family Blend was made with the preferred tobaccos of the fathers of three of the company’s most important executives, more specifically the fathers of the President, Alan Rubin, the Vice President, Ralph Montero, and the National Sales Director, George Sosa.
