Rated '94', score some victorious Villigers today!
After years of crafting primarily machine-made cigars, Villiger made the jump into the world of handmade premiums and hasn’t looked back. With more than a few 90+ ratings and a couple Top 25 appearances, this storied brand is making its mark in the industry on two fronts. Originally founded in 1888, Villiger is marking its 130th year of operations with a brand new offering that is a bit of a departure for this storied brand.
La Vencedora or “the victor” is a Nicaraguan puro that boasts a full-flavored, full-bodied experience. Study the selection pre-light with your all your senses: heavy in the hand, it's redolent & aromatic with a deep, rich mahogany hue. This captivating coloration is thanks to the slow, extended fermentation process each La Vencedora's Habano Oscuro wrapper must undergo. Just underneath this stunning leaf lay luscious, well-aged Nicaraguan ligeros which, when combined in combustion with the aforementioned capa, create creamy notes of coffee, nougat, roasted nuts, and even lightly-salted sunflower seeds. The smoke is thick, chewy, and plentiful, and leaves a slight sweetness on the long, satisfying finish. This magnificent premium from Villiger is a must-try!
