Known primarily for its massive and venerable machine-made cigar business, Villiger has been determined to create not just a good, but a great premium cigar. It wasn't about the money, as Villiger is already a billion dollar company. It stemmed from owner and chairman Heinrich Villiger's love and appreciation for premium cigars. His company finally achieved greatness with La Flor de Ynclan. Now, the cigar is 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. It's a welcome change, giving Villiger—which has made cigars since the 1800s—its first entry into Cigar Aficionado's Top 10.
