San'Doro Colorado cigars are from Villiger Cigars - the world's 5th largest cigar company - in partnership with Oliva Cigars in Nicaragua, who have blended and handcrafted this super-premium cigar selection to the highest standards. The brand's name comes from the Latin words Christopher Columbus used to describe the dried leaves smoked by the Taino Indians on his famed 1492 voyage to the New World: indorum sana sancta, which means, "the holy healing plant of the Indians," or san’doro, for short.
The blend consists of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binders, seamlessly rolled in a stunning Ecuadorian Habano Colorado wrapper leaf. The medium-bodied smoke is smooth, creamy, and very full-flavored, issuing intense notes of espresso, dark chocolate, and earthy spice.
"Having a great cigar maker like Oliva behind the brand, people are impressed that we’re working with a factory of their caliber to make great cigars at the best price possible," said Villiger North America president, Rene Castañeda.
That said, there's no better way to introduce yourself to the Villiger brand, which has stood for excellence since 1888. Taste for yourself by adding these fine cigars to your collection.

This Villiger cigar had a very good rating online. However the robusto I smoked was plugged, and the cigar was not very well made. Good blending means the binder, filler and wrapper all work together. That was definitely not the case. Needed constant relighting. Taste-wise, not impressive. Kept too long, and lost its character.
I got these because I knew they were good. Nice medium smoke, flavorful and smooth. They were the product of a blender s concept for their ideal cigar and they are pretty good.
