Cigar News: Villiger Opens Factory in Brazil

Villiger Cigars have opened a new factory in Brazil, Villiger Do Brasil (which translates from Portuguese to “Villiger of Brazil”).  Heinrich Villiger was there for the opening of the new facility, marking the next evolution of a long relationship between Villiger Cigars and Brazilian tobacco, dating back to Villiger Cigars’ beginnings in 1888, when Villiger began importing Brazilian tobacco.  This later led to establishing a Brazilian Villiger subsidiary, and factory called Charutos Tobajara Limitada.  The name is derived from a tobacco growing Indian tribe in the Amazon area

Quick Cigar Review: Villiger | La Flor De Ynclan Robusto

“This was a good cigar, but I had higher expectations. The flavors were pleasing, but I felt for most of it it could have used some sweetness. If the whole cigar had tasted like the final third, minus the bitter nub, it would have scored higher for sure. I definitely want to try the other vitolas and give them more rest. Construction was great and I could see this turning into a very good smoke.” – Emmett

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro Revisited

“I am not a big fan of overly mild to mild-medium cigars. This one made me change my outlook. From the initial appearance and feel to the smoke throughout each third, this cigar was definitely one for everyone. Whether smoking in the morning with coffee, lunchtime with a soda or lemonade, or after dinner with some scotch or bourbon, this cigar will deliver a tremendous experience to enjoy. Grab these and just sit back and relax.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Colorado Toro

“The first two thirds showed some promise, although a bit one dimensional. The creamy leather and oak combination was very enjoyable. The final third, however, was my samples unraveling. A harsh cedar and tight draw almost had me tossing this one. Based on other reviewers experiences, this might be a candidate for the golf course.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)

Blind Cigar Review: Villiger | San’Doro Claro Toro

“If you are looking for a well constructed Connecticut shade cigar this might be it. This cigar reminded me of a lighter version of the Quesada 40th Corona Clasica. The fruit on the retrohale mixed in with the pepper and cinnamon on the palate and the sweetness in the back of the throat were all very enjoyable. I easily recommend this cigar if your palate yearns for flavors in the mild strength category with body and complexity that hold up and build throughout the whole experience.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)
