Villiger Cigars is set to ship the new Villiger 1888 today, December 12, 2016 nationally to cigar shops in the U.S. The blend made a “sneak peek” appearance at the 2016 IPCPR in Las Vegas and made a splash at InterTabac 2016 in Dortmund, Germany. To coincide with the launch, a special event is scheduled at Miura Cigars’ annual Holiday party in Miami.
The Villiger 1888 blend is a complex and elegant cigar that was part of a 2010 limited edition production, which celebrated Villiger’s 100 year anniversary in Germany. Made in the Dominican Republic, the 1888 features an Ecuadorian wrapper, Mexican binder, Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. One can expect Dried fruit, roasted coffee and caramel notes, fortified with a peppery and floral finish. The line will be expressed in five vitolas.
