A new line of cigars from Villiger is slated to arrive in stores in early November, as today the company announced the upcoming release of the Cuellar Black Forest.
While the company has not sent out any official information about the cigar, it made the announcement via Cigar Aficionado, with which it has an ongoing exclusivity agreement. That publication reports that the cigar will use a Mexican maduro wrapper over a Dominican-grown binder and filler. It is being produced at Tabacalera Palma in the Dominican Republic, and offered in four sizes:
- Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Robusto (5 x 48)
- Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Toro Gordo (6 x 54)
- Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Churchill (7 x 50)
- Villiger Cuellar Black Forest Torpedo (6 1/4 x 52)
They are all offered in 20-count boxes, with single cigar pricing reportedly between $7.80 and $8.40. The cigar is said to be named for the Black Forest region of Germany
Messages sent to Villiger’s public relations firm regarding the report have so far gone unanswered.
Update (Oct. 25, 2019) — The company issued a press release about the cigar today, which included images of the cigar.
