Today, Villiger announced a line extensions to their Villiger Cuellar series, which currently includes the Connecticut Krēmē. This new extension is called Cuellar Black Forest. Villiger Cuellar Black Forest is made in the Dominican Republic. The blend uses a dark maduro wrapper inspired by the real Black Forest in southern Germany, near to the border of Switzerland where the Villiger headquarters is located. The rest of the blend uses Dominican binder and fillers. Henrich Villiger and Villiger Cuellar Black Forest is described as a medium to full-bodied, full-flavored cigar. It is rolled at Tabacalera La Palma in the Dominican Republic and blended by Master Blender Jochy Blanco. The packaging of the Villiger Cuellar Black Forest resembles the aura of the Black Forest.
Villiger Chairman of the Board Heinrich Villiger grew up near the Black Forest, which gets its name from the hundred mile stretch of large pine trees, which block the sunlight from reaching the forest ground. This along with fog creates an eerie ambiance, creepy enough to have inspired some legends of werewolves, haunted monasteries, castles, and ancient Celtic cemeteries. German based authors, the Brothers Grimm based many of their dark fables on the Black Forest.
Heinrich Villiger said:” We very much look forward to releasing the Villiger Cuellar Black Forest, as it marries Caribbean artisan tobacco craftmanship with German/Swiss folklore, culture, and mysticism. Both our passion for tobacco and the Villiger culture are represented in this cigar.”
The Villiger Cuellar Black Forest comes in four sizes. MRSP is $7.80 to $8.40. Robusto 5 x 48, Toro Gordo 6 x 54, Churchill 7 x 50, Torpedo 6.25 x 52.
