Villiger Talanga Double Robusto (5.5×54)
W: Honduran Connecticut
B: Nicaraguan Habano
F: Nicaraguan
Factory: Plasencia Cigars S.A., Nicaraguan

It’s easy to overlook Villiger’s relatively young line-up of premium handmade cigars, which came to fruition only a few, short years ago. Since 1888, they’ve been mostly associated with machine mades. That’s exactly why I decided to light one up and see what they’re about. You never know what you might be missing. We all know about the Rocky’s, Romeo’s, Monte’s, and Padron’s. But what about Villiger?
Notes:
  • Before lighting up, I could smell an aroma of earth and dried fruit while the cold draw gave me cereal and a bit of tobacco in the background. “What cereal?”, you ask. Cheerios.
  • The construction couldn’t be any better. Upon my first pull I thought, “This is exactly how I want every cigar to draw.” The Talanga smoke was thick and generous.
  • The flavors seemed fairly common and mellow, but retrohaling brought some subtleties out of this cigar. And don’t worry, it’s extremely tame on the old sniffer. Not a trace of peppery sting.
  • This cigar really picked up steam in the 2nd half. Some passing tones showed up with the savory body transforming seemlessly into a mouth-watering, velvety cream.
  • For all the Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco in this stick, its profile was much more like that of a Dominican: mellow, smooth and creamy.

Flavor Report: Damp Wood, Savory, Meat, Nuts, Cream, Earth
Overall: 7/10
This cigar caught me by surprise with its smooth, Dominican-like body and taste. If you love savory, creamy cigars then this is the one for  you. This is truly an everyday smoke.
