Villiger will be bringing a 6×60 version of the La Vencedora to the IPCPR trade show later this week. The La Vencedora was released earlier this year to celebrate the company’s 130 year Anniversary. Emmett did a quick review on it here and gave it a 91.
Rene Castañeda, President of Villiger North America said, “The Villiger La Vencedora has been very well received and so much so that there has been demand to introduce a 6X60 vitola. We look forward presenting this new size and seeing all of our friends and colleagues at the 2018 IPCPR in Las Vegas.”
The Villiger La Vencedora Gorda will be abailble in 25 count boxes and have an MSRP of $10.50. La Vencedora is the follow up La Flor De Ynclan released last year. The Villiger La Vencedora translates to “The Victor” and is the said by the company that it is the first full-bodied Villiger cigar. It has a special meaning to Villiger Cigars chairman of the board, Heinrich Villiger.
The Villiger La Vencedora or “The Victor” represents to Heinrich Villiger the arrival of Villiger Cigars to the premium handmade cigar segment. It was time, in his opinion, to push to the envelope and create a legacy cigar that will serve as a proper follow up to the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan. This cigar is a Nicaraguan puro and uses a Nicaraguan Habano Oscuro wrapper and is currently available in three sizes: Robusto (5×50) MSRP: $9.00, Toro (6×50) MSRP: $9.50, Churchill (7×50) MSRP: $10.00.
