Villiger’s Limited “La Flor De Ynclan Lancero Especial”
Villiger Cigars announces that the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan will be presented in a special edition Lancero Especial size, at the 2018 IPCPR in Las Vegas this July. In 2017, the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan robusto garnered a 93 rating, ranked as the number 10 cigar in the world, by Cigar Aficionado Magazine.
The medium- bodied Villiger La Flor De Ynclan was described by Cigar Aficionado Magazine as, “… a fantastic smoke, sweet and charming from first puff to last, anchored by simple-yet-pleasing notes of chocolate and salt, and then refined by more precise intonations of walnut and orange marmalade.“
A cigar years in the making, Heinrich Villiger and Master Blender Matias Maragoto felt that the best version of the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan had yet to be released. The new Lancero Especial size is described as providing a more intense smoking experience in both flavor and smoke. Only 500, 25-count boxes will be produced yearly for this special edition Lancero Especial vitola. The Villiger La Flor De Ynclan Lancero Especial is a 6 3/4 x 43 with an MSRP of $11.00
“As I have stated in the past,” Heinrich Villiger says, “the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan cigar has been an ongoing labor of love for us, and we feel that we have further refined the blend with the addition of this special edition lancero vitola.“
La Vencedora in New 6 x 60 Vitola
Villiger Cigars unveiled its first ever full-bodied Villiger Cigar brand, the Villiger La Vencedora in early 2018. Villiger Cigars will now unveil the Villiger La Vencedora “Gordo” which is a new 6 x 60 size vitola at the IPCPR. Reviews by consumers and media alike have been strong as the Villiger La Vencedora received a 92 rating by CigarSnob Magazine, a 92 Four Star rating by Cigar Journal, and a 90 rating by Cigar Aficionado.
Rene Castañeda, President of Villiger North America, said,” The Villiger La Vencedora has been very well received and so much so that there has been demand to introduce a 6 x 60 vitola. We look forward presenting this new size and seeing all of our friends and colleagues at the 2018 IPCPR in Las Vegas.”
The Villiger La Vencedora Gordo will come in 25-count boxes with an MSRP of $10.50.

The years 2016 and 2017 have served as breakthrough years for Villiger Cigars.
