Tasting Note: Villiger is a company with a long tobacco history that dates back to the 1800s. The company's history in the premium sector, however, isn't quite as long—closer to 10 years. The company is based in Switzerland, and its premium products are distributed through Villiger Cigars North America, with the U.S. as its primary market. Efforts to infiltrate the high-end sector have resulted in an entire portfolio, and the most memorable is the Villiger San'Doro Colorado. The name pays homage to tobacco lore. According to Villiger, when Christopher Columbus brought tobacco back to Europe, it was referred to as the holy or sacred plant of India, also called San'Doro. The Ecuadoran and Nicaraguan tobaccos in this blend pair beautifully, and the San'Doro is a fine addition to the premium cigar world—even if it took Villiger more than a century to get there.

An attractive robusto with a colorado wrapper. The cigar smokes evenly, delivering earthy, nutty impressions fortified by hearty notes of charred red meat.
