Villiger 125th Anniversary cigars were made to commemorate the tradition and heritage of the esteemed European tobacco company founded in Lucerne, Switzerland in1888. Made at Plasencia Cigar's factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, they used estate-grown long-fillers and binders from Estelí and Jalapa for the core blend. To give the cigar more depth, Villiger went with two binder leaves from Jalapa, and finished the cigars in shimmering Ecuadorian Habano wrappers from a vintage 2009 harvest. Medium-bodied smoke smacks the palate with a creamy serving of earthy tobacco flavors as notes of sweet wood and spice enter the fray. The cigar maintains a steady burn with a gravity-defying ash, and reveals its more complex side by exhibiting some impressive change-ups along the way. If you've had the Villiger Talanga or Villiger Colorado cigars, you'll also enjoy this 125th Anniversary selection.
