Villiger cigars has a long and celebrated history in the tobacco business. Villiger Sons Limited was established in 1888 in the small town of Pfeffikon, Switzerland, where Villiger remains headquartered to this day. For years, the company has been known for making machine made and dry cured cigars like the Villiger Export.
Recently, Villiger North America was formed and for the first time, the company is focusing on the creation and sales of premium hand rolled cigars. With production from some of the most respected manufacturers in Central America and elsewhere, it is the goal of the company to introduce the finest smoking experience a premium handmade cigar has to offer.
It wasn't an easy task introducing people to their premium line up as the company has always been known for producing machine made smokes. So the emphasis was on perfecting high quality blends housed in attractive packaging so the cigar world would take a Villiger cigar seriously. And, the hard work has definitely paid off for the company as the leading magazines and online publications continually award these new breed of cigars with incredibly high marks.
The new premium hand rolled offerings from Villigar Cigars are the Villiger Colorado, Villiger Talanga, Villiger 125, La Libertad, La Capitana, Tobajara and the NicaRoma.
Two of the cigars in particular have received high scores along with great praise. The Villiger Colorado is made with Nicaraguan long fillers, bound in a mix of 2 different Habano leaves, then wrapped in a silky, oily, dark brown Jalapa Colorado leaf. The flavor profile is in the medium to full bodied range with notes of coffee, cocoa and a touch of sweetness from that nice oily wrapper.
The Villiger Talanga is a medium bodied offering that contains 3 different Nicaraguan longfillers, a Habano binder, and a beautiful Honduran Connecticut wrapper, meticulously constructed for a perfect burn every time. This blend gives off notes of cedar, chocolate, coffee and a tiny touch of sweetness almost like a cinnamon. With some serious dedication to their craft, the people who make Villiger Cigars are proud to offer these new and delicious premium treats.... more
