At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, PDR Cigars unveiled the El Trovador Maduro. As the name indicates, this is a maduro version of the original El Trovador which was introduced at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
El Trovador is a line for which PDR Cigars owner and master blender Abe Flores took inspiration from two sources: a recent trip he took to Cuba; and his background in the music business (he was a bass player). On his trip to Cuba, Flores saw an old vintage cigar band with the name “Trovador”. The name Trovador translates to Troubadour. While a Troubadour is a French minstrel, it is also the name of the legendary night club in Los Angeles, California. Given his background in music, Flores thought it would be a good name for a cigar and last year El Trovador was launched.
Like the original El Trovador, the El Trovador Maduro uses a double binder and a filler of Nicaraguan tobaccos. The main difference is the El Trovador Maduro replaces Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper found on the original El Trovador with a San Andres Maduro wrapper. The El Trovador Maduro is also available in the same four sizes as the original.
