FrontRunners: Select Smoke

The Turrent family, which established its business in 1880, grows more tobacco and produces more cigars than any other Mexican cigar maker, yet its name remains largely unknown to American smokers. This situation surely will change as word of the new A. Turrent brand spreads. This rustic yet refined cigar—available in five shapes, including the A. Turrent Robusto—exhibits the peppery, earthy character for which Mexican tobacco is revered, but it delivers a flavor that is surprisingly smooth for a south-of-the-border smoke. A departure from today’s increasingly exotic tobacco blends, the A. Turrent is wonderfully reminiscent of the simple, well-balanced cigars we used to sneak out of Father’s stash.
