PDR El Trovador cigars were created by master blender and Pinar Del Rio Cigars founder, Abe Flores, who got his inspiration for this blend from two unique sources; first, his background as a gifted jazz bassist, and secondly, a visit to the Motherland, that is, Cuba. During his visit Flores saw a vintage Cuban cigar band labeled, "Trovador," or Troubadour, which also happens to be the name of the legendary Los Angeles night club, one of the meccas for musicians from all over the world. Following a trademark check, Flores moved ahead with the project and fashioned a long-filler blend consisting of 2 parts Nicaraguan Ligero and 1½ parts Viso set in a double Nicaraguan/Corojo binder, and rolled them in Ecuadorian Rosado wrappers. The result is a medium-full smoke reeling with notes of earth, leather, roasted coffee, sweet spice, and a subtle floral note. Arguably, one of the most impressive cigars to come out of this highly-respected boutique cigar company, and well worth adding to your humidor.
