A. Turrent Triple Play Belicoso


The Turrent family of Mexico has long made cigars in the San Andrés Valley, typically using its homegrown tobaccos. Recently the company has expanded its portfolio, exporting its tobacco leaves, working with blenders from other factories and creating new cigars made from a variety of types of tobaccos. The A. Turrent Triple Play Belicoso is made with a combination of maduro tobaccos from Mexico, Honduras and Connecticut, and the resulting mix (which involves blending several vintages) is sublime. The Triple Play Belicoso smacks of espresso bean and cedar, and is one of the best cigars to bear the Turrent name that we have ever smoked.
