Villiger Celebration 125th Tubo
medium tobacco aromas from the colorado wrapper and the foot. Some veins in the wrapper. Prelight draw is even but has very little floavor past a faint vanilla.
To their credit, the Viliger rep was one of the most gracious and helpful at the ICPCR.
Very light at initial burn; I get the feeling that this will turn out to be a full-sized version of the Villiger tinned minis, A very light bodied cigar with predominant vanilla overtones.
Cigar is running badly, but corrected in one try. Continues to be very light bodied with almost a fruity quality of the smoke.
On the plus side, the cigar seems very well constructed, recovering nicely from the initial burn run. Medium grey ash is holding very firm past the one inch point.
The cigar is very smooth and is built well to not get hot as you smoke it.
Definitely one for the light crowd.
Not sure what else I can say about this one. In the past I have smoked the tinned minis for a quick but satisfying smoke; perhaps the Swiss like their cigars this way, but I will not be going out of my way to find these in the future.
Like I said before, Villiger tins are nice quick smokes.
Their venture into full size cigars just leaves a lot to be desired.
