Tonight I’m wrapping up the evening with an El Triunfador lancero, one of my favorite (and incredibly under-rated) cigars. After all the years these things have been out, I still love ’em..and don’t understand why the rest of the world doesn’t clamber after them. The woodsy, charred-oak flavors, impeccable burn and reasonable price make them a home run for me.
Granted, I know most of the cigar buying public are regrettably head over heels for bigger rings these days, at least in the U.S. Still, you’d think these would get *some* attention in the public eye. I encounter a lot of people who are not even familiar with the line. There’s no accounting for taste, I reckon. I suppose I should be thankful there are more for me :).
What about you all? Any favorites that you adore but scurry off with, to tuck them gently away in your reserves..chuckling at all the other folks who are missing out? What are your favorite line(s) that maybe don’t get the attention they should? Maybe something you’d recommend trying?
