At this summer’s IPCPR Convention and Trade Show, Villiger Cigars will be adding new sizes to its recently released Trill and Cabareté lines.

A 5 x 46 corona will be added to the Trill line, which is made at Tabacalera La Palma in the Dominican Republic. Trill is a Dominican puro that is described as medium-full bodied, using a Habano wrapper, Cuban seed binder and Cuban seed Corojo and Criollo ’98 fillers. Like the rest of the line, the Trill Corona will come in 21-count boxes with an MSRP of $139.

For the Cabareté line, Villiger is going to the other end of the ring gauge spectrum, adding a 5 x 60 Gordo vitola. Cabareté starts with a Nicaraguan maduro wrapper that sits on top of a Dominican Cuban seed binder and four types of filler from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua: Piloto Cubano, Criollo, San Vicente & Ligero Cubano. It too is made at Tabacalera Palma and will have a box price of $170.

The two new lines, along with the Villiger Cuéllar–which was originally announced as being called the Connecticut Krēmē–began shipping to TAA-member retailers approximately two weeks ago, with additional retailers scheduled to get their orders in the next week or two, according to Fabian Barrantes, the company’s director of marketing.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
