Villiger has announced a new limited edition diademas vitola for its two San’Doro lines, the Claro and Colorado.
The new vitola measures 6 x 58, though that ring gauge comes from the cigar’s thickest point. Both the head and foot taper down to smaller ring gauges.
The company is producing just 300 boxes, each of which contains five each of the the San’Doro Claro and the San’Doro Colorado. Each cigar is priced at $15, while boxes come with a MSRP of $150, before taxes. The cigars are produced at Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A. in Estelí.
The blends of the two cigars are similar, with Nicaraguan tobacco used for the binder and filler of each. The medium-bodied Claro uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, while an Ecuadorian habano leaf is used for the Colorado to give it a fuller profile. The company also offers the San’Doro line in a maduro version, though that cigar is a Brazilian puro.
The Villiger San’Doro Diademas are shipping to retailers today.
