July 9, 2013 — For a company founded in the 1800s and thriving today 125 years later, a special cigar was called for. We combed and queried our trusted international sources and ultimately chose 2009 Seco Habano Ecuador for the wrapper and Seco Habano Jalapa x 2 for the binders.

First production is limited to 30,000 cigars, each hand-crafted in Nicaragua. The Villiger 125 is a medium-bodied cigar with a distinctive color and oil content that delights the senses with a creamy finish and a hint of cinnamon on the retrohale. This is a cigar that extends an open invitation to anyone who wants to celebrate tradition and enduring quality.
