Hiya folks and thanks for tuning in! This week I want to introduce you to the newest love in my life thanks to Pete Johnson, the El Triunfador. Smoking the El Triunfador gave me so much pleasure that I felt guilty afterward like I had cheated on my wife.
Video runs a little over 12 minutes. Doing a review of cigar you really love (El Triunfador) and a review of a cigar you really hate (5 Vegas Knuckle) are the two most difficult types of reviews to do. They are on opposite ends of the spectrum but you can only say so many good things and so many bad things about a cigar. Its definitely challenging.
Check Out These Reviews of the El Triunfador:
Barry from acigarsmoker.com -> Rated it a 91
Lisa from Her Humidor -> Said it was “well balanced and strong”
Stew from The World According to Stew -> Stew gave it 2 Thumbs Up

This cigar looks vaguely like a Sancho Panza Molinos.. any similarities in flavor?
So the question remains, did you like this cigar? 🙂
Wow with a glowing positive review like this, I will definately pick up a few.
Just an amazing smoke isn’t it. I was able to pick up an additional three back in November but have put them to sleep along with the Frank. Why you ask? In fear that I will not be able to get my hands on them again. Now with that said, I see myself smoking another one really soon. As always great review.
Great Review! I love this cigar too. It’s a catch 22 smoking this thing…each one you smoke means there is one less in the world and that how it will always be. Luckily my local has a box 1/2 on his shelves! woo hoo.
Great review Jerry. I guess if I can find these I’ll pick some up..
Sounds like you were about to blow one in your shorts bro. You must have really loved that smoke 😛
I gotta agree with you on this review Jerry. I guess the only negative I could say would be that I was left feeling a little unsatisfied. Even though it is 7 inches long it smoked pretty fast because of the small ring gauge, and because I just smoke quicker than most people. I loved this smoke but I wouldn’t complain if there were a few more inches added on…lol…now I’m being greedy.
Definitely on my “gotta try” list. Thanks for reviewing this baby!
So tell us how you really feel about the El Triunfador?
I agree it’s a great smoke. I have a few left but I need to order a few more.
Great review by the great torpedo… I broke off and bought a box and have yet to smoke one. They are hard to find and my local B & M was down to its last box so it was do or die… Thanks
Great review as always, and thanks for the gratuitous F bombs. 😀
I had one of these last fall and I must say I wasn’t as impressed as you. It was Ok but I thought it pretty one dimensional. I’m not a fan of the Cabiguans either so your mileage does vary. 🙂
I will try and get some of these. I love the chocolate, espresso, coffee flavors.
So Jerry…you liked the cigar huh? I have to agree with your review. Thanks to your lead on Twitter I too order a 5 pack from Atlantic and although I’ve only smoked one, its was truly a delight.
Great review of a great cigar!
I will add this to the long list of cigars that I need to try.
Thanks for the review!
for a moment there i thought this was going to turn into one of those weird porn movies.
“sexy, sexy, sexy …. ughhhhh theres a party in my mouth” im telling Maria!!
Nice review. One of my absolute favorites as well. One of these days I’ll break down and get a box while I still can.
Jerry you have corrupted me and made Mrs OlivaSerieV pissed… These are so freaking tasty after smoking the first one out of my box I felt the need to pick up a 2nd box of these tasty but ratther expensive smokes. Your review burnt a $400 hole in my wallet… Ron @ Serious Cigars in Houston Thanks you!
Theses are an awesome cigar< even if you are not a fan of lanceros…
just reviewed it too
Oh man, I just had one of these the other day. Holy crap was it amazing! You were spot freaking on in the flavors, Jerry (although I could’ve sworn I tasted a hint of black cherry like I felt I tasted in the Cojonu ’06). Such a beautiful cigar to look at and even more amazing to taste. I hope I win another 5er or two in the next few days so I don’t feel guilty when I smoke one…lol
Keep up the good work, man!
WOW this cigar is amazing!
Dang dude, get a room!
