Villiger Cigars has announced it is adding a 6 x 52 line extension to its La Flor de Ynclan line.
The origins of this brand trace back to Cuba. In the 1960s, Villiger acquired the trademark, but it wouldn’t be until 2007 when Villiger would release its version of La Flor de Ynclan. After it was released, Villiger Chairman Heinrich Villiger was not satisfied with the blend and the decision was made to remove it from the market. Mr. Villiger worked with master blender Jose Martias Maragoto at the ABAM to tweak the blend and bring it back to market in 2017.
With the Toro, Mr. Villiger and Margoto once again have collaborated to tweak and improve the blend to work with a 6 x 52 Toro. The components of the blend consist of an Ecuadorian wrapper, Indonesian binder and a filler blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. La Flor de Ynclan Toro is available in ten-count boxes.
Last year Villiger introduced the La Flor de Ynclan Lancero Especial, a cigar that was named 2018 Cigar of the Year by Prime Time co-host Aaron Loomis on Developing Palates.
