The draw was absolutely perfect from beginning to end. It had a great amount of resistance and the smoke production was on point.
This was a pretty cool cigar and a fun smoking experience for a cigar nerd. It is always great to see how tobacco smokes from a single country and on top of that, see how that country delivers a wrapper that you typically don’t see from there. I would be interested to see how this wrapper is grown, the climate it is grown in as well, but you can see and taste the difference between this Connecticut Shade vs. Ecuadorian Connecticut and US Connecticut. This had a little bit more lemon grass and earth to it, which was a cool experience. Overall, the Villiger Do Brasil Claro Robusto is enjoyable and while not overly complex or showing transitioning, there is stuff going on with the cigar. With that, it was constructed wonderfully. I don’t think the blend will speak to a huge market in the United States, I see this doing better in Europe and Asia to be honest, but I do think that it will catch on with some older smokers or guys who like Candela and Connecticut offerings. Very cool and looking forward to the Maduro.
