Blended by José “Jochy” Blanco at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic, the Villiger TAA 2021 is a box-pressed Toro Gordo, measuring 6 inches by 54 ring gauge. Outside of its Ecuador Habano wrapper, all the tobacco is from the Dominican Republic.
The Villiger TAA 2021 has a suggested retail price of $9.50 each and the production is limited to a run of only 350 boxes of 20. According to the company, the cigar is medium in body.
This year’s release has a different blend than the company’s 2020 TAA exclusive, which earned 94 points in the October 13 edition of Cigar Insider.
All TAA exclusive cigars are limited-editions sold only through retail members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America.
Villiger’s premium cigars are distributed out of Miami by Villiger Cigars North America, the premium division of Villiger Söhn AG, a European company known for its machine-made cigars.
