Hailing from Switzerland, Villiger 1888 cigars are the latest creation from Villiger & Sons in celebration of their 120th anniversary. Villiger Stokkebye, known for their pipe tobacco, started out in 1888 with Jean Villiger as the mastermind behind the company. The Villiger 1888 cigars are now developed from start to end by Heinrich Villiger, who has created himself a reputation as one of the last grand old men in the cigar industry with several decades of cigar-blending, rolling and making.
The Villiger 1888 cigar is a solidly constructed, high quality cigar that is a prime example of Villiger’s great attention to detail. It has a clean-cut appearance… flawless looking with its seamless construction, practically veinless golden wrapper, a solid and tightly packed binder and filler, a perfectly placed double cap, and its easy-to-read band.
With its Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Dominican binder, and a multinational proprietary longfiller blend (from the Caribbean and Central America) the Villiger 1888 exudes an earthy and hay-like aroma. It might start out with a tight draw but does loosen up about halfway in. The burn on the Villiger 1888 is almost flawless with a tight white ash and a sharp burn line.
The Villiger 1888 comes in 5 sizes:
Corona (6 x 43)
Perla (4 x 40)
Robusto (4 3/4 x 50)
Short Robusto (4 x 50)
Torpedo (6 x 52)
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Proprietary Multinational Blend (Central America and Caribbean)
While the Villiger 1888 never claims to be a complex blend it is a refreshing change of pace from all the hardcore, ligero cigars on the market. Its flavor profile will entice your palate with easy-going, mild hints of vanilla, musk and sweet, creamy notes rounding out with a smooth hint of wood. An excellent choice for beginner smokers and for a breakfast cigar.
In the words of Heinrich Villiger, “As with all Villiger products, it is our hope that you will taste the artistry, skill and love that we put into every cigar.”
