Philippe’s Best Cigar Review – Villiger Cigars

When you want a premium cigar, you couldn’t go wrong with the range that Villiger Cigars offers. The quality of the leaf, the manufacturing it went through, and even the packaging it comes with are unparalleled.

Established in 1888 by Jean Villiger in the small town of Pfeffikon, Switzerland, the company manufactures and sells cigars around the world. In fact, they sell more than 1.5 billion of their products every year. The nice thing about this company is that even though it was founded over a hundred years ago, it’s still headquartered right where it was founded.

Villager Cigars offers a wide range of cigars that include premium handmade cigars, machine made cigars, and pipe tobacco.


  •  Villiger 125 – This cigar uses the 2009 Seco Habano Ecudor for its wrapper and Seco Habano Jalapa x 2 for the binders. It also has Viso Haabo Jalapa & Esteli for its fillers. This is available in three vitolas: Canton (56 x 4.5), Lucerne (56 x 5.5), and Mondo (56 x 6.5). The Villiger 125 is a medium-bodied one with a color that is distinctive. The oil content on this cigar is also delightful to the senses because it starts off creamy and the retrohale has a hint of cinnamon. Each of these cigars is handcrafted in Nigeria.
  • Villiger Colorado – This is a well-constructed cigar that feels solid in the hand. It is oily and burns to perfection. The wrapper for this cigar is Jalapa Colorado while the binder is Esteli Habano and Ometepe Habano. The filler is all Nicaraguan. The Villiger Colorado is available in six sizes: Corona (44 x 5.5), Robusto (50 x 5), Double Robusto (54 x 5.5), Toro (50 x 6), Gordo (60 x 6), and Churchill (50 x 7). The Colorado is on the full side of medium bodied, and it features a nice spice for those who enjoy a fuller smoking experience.

  • Villiger Talanga – The wrapper for this cigar is Talanga (Connecticut seed) Honduras while the binder is Jalapa (Seco Habano) Nicaragua. The filler for the Talanga is comprised of a blend of three Nicaraguan tobaccos. It is available in the following sizes: Corona (44 x 5.5), Robusto (50 x 5), Double Robusto (54 x 5.5), Toro (50 x 6), and Churchill (50 x 7).
