Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Libertad Robusto

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Libertad Robusto

The Villiger La Libertad Robusto was pleasant and dessert like through the first third. It became a darker, earth forward profile in the second third, eventually losing the balance that was delivered in the first third. The last third was more similar to the second third, as earth was the primary flavor element.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger TAA 2021 Exclusive

Overall, the flavor profile of the Villiger TAA 2021 Exclusive was fairly average. The cigar never really brought an interesting flavor profile, just one that is easily found in many cigars. Not something I really see myself coming back to.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger TAA Exclusive 2020

The Villiger TAA Exclusive 2020 had some promising flavors in the first third, but ultimately did not provide the level of complexity and nuance that we've had from past Villiger releases. Great construction with a resistant draw, I was left with an overall average experience.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Do Brasil Claro Robusto

The experience of the Villiger Do Brasil Claro Robusto went like this. First two thirds, wow, I am impressed by what Brazilian Connecticut shade can do. The final third, more average. This is a cigar that is packed with full flavors without much strength. I can see myself enjoying a couple as my starter cigar for the day.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo

The Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo is a fantastic cigar and one of the best I have smoked from Villiger in a while. They really got a great blend out of Tabacalera Palma and what a nice Mexican San Andres offering. This is definitely a maduro I will come back to down the road and one I would highly recommend.

Team Cigar Review: Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press

I enjoyed the interplay of cocoa to milk chocolate, minerals, cedar and toasted nuts of the Villiger La Meridiana Toro Box Press. Having smoked two samples for review, one sample had a considerable ripe plum note whereas the other had none of it. Regardless, both samples were good and worthy to be checked out.
