Villiger Adding Lancero to Flor de Ynclan Line

Villiger Cigars, the company behind the award-winning Villiger La Flor de Ynclan, is adding a lancero to the brand. The skinny smoke will be shorter and thicker than traditional lanceros, measuring 6 3/4 inches long by 43 ring gauge.

The cigar won’t debut to retailers until this summer at the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers trade show in Las Vegas, but Cigar Aficionado smoked an early version of the new size while visiting the ABAM cigar factory in Santo Dominigo, Dominican Republic, where Flor de Ynclans are made.

The Lancero will have the same blend as the Flor de Ynclan Robusto, which was named No. 10 cigar of 2017 by Cigar Aficionado: Ecuador wrapper, Indonesian binder and a mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos. It will come in boxes of 25, and will have a suggested retail price of $11, the same price as the Robusto.
