The Tatuaje El Triunfador cigar has a strange story to tell. Once upon a time, Pete Johnson (founder of Tatuaje Cigars) described it as a “ghost cigar” – a cigar that was barely there. It was launched and sold with no fanfare, no press releases, and no web listings. It didn’t even appear on the company price sheets.
What the hell kind of way is that to launch a product? In what business school do they teach people to send a new product out to market and tell no one? How can you sell anything that way? Well, those who know cigars also know that a little mystery is often just the thing you need to get people intrigued and seeking out your “secret smoke.” We have no clue if that’s what Mr. Johnson was going for here. Perhaps he was simply testing the waters with a new smoke and didn’t want all the hassle of a full bore launch?
In any event, the introduction style suited the Tatuaje El Triunfador cigar. Unlike other highly-decorated full strength, full flavor lines from Tatuaje, this was a mild and mellow blend meant to provide a relaxing smoke. Tastes of earth, cedar, creamy coffee, and spice all mingled in each draw, thanks to a Nicaraguan filler blend and ultimately, an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. It’s a nicely balanced profile that routinely earns ratings over 90. In our book, that makes it a winner. Hey, you know one way to say, “winner” in Spanish?
