Villiger Cigars has reblended and repackaged its La Libertad line, and the new version is on its way to cigar shops now.

Previously made at the ABAM factory in the Dominican Republic, Villiger relocated production of La Libertad to its own Nicaraguan factory in Estelí and gave it an entirely new blend consisting of a dark, Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper, Dominican binder and hearty filler of Nicaraguan tobacco. According to Villiger, the cigars are blended to be medium-to-full in strength. The previous blend was discontinued in December of 2020. 

The new La Libertads come in three sizes: Corona at 5 3/4 inches by 43 ring gauge, Robusto at 5 by 52 and a 6-by-54 Gran Toro. They’re packaged in newly designed 20-count boxes and retail for $7.50 to $8.50 per cigar. 

La Libertad is distributed by Villiger Cigars North America, the premium subsidiary of Villiger Söhne AG, a European company known for its machine-made cigars.

For a vertical brand tasting of the new La Libertad, see a future issue of Cigar Insider.
