Tasting Note

Swiss company Villiger & Söhne has been in the tobacco business since the 1800s, but its only been making premium cigars for two decades. The decision to explore the handmade sector was made by company owner Heinrich Villiger, who not only believes in the segment's potential, but is a smoker of handmade cigars himself. The Villiger San'Doro has been a consistent performer with Cigar Aficionado since the brand was introduced in 2015, and the Churchill marks the second time that a San'Doro Colorado has appeared on the Top 25 list. When it debuted, Villiger San'Doro cigars were made at the Oliva Cigar factory. Production has since moved to Joya de Nicaragua, but the blend is the same and the cigar still performs at a very high level.
