This review was written by El Cigar Newbie, who recently launched his blog at Enjoy!

My vast knowledge of smoking a wide variety of cigars for about a whopping three years, certainly qualifies my AKA as el-cigar-newbie, and I do blog for the el-newbie nation. In this time line I have bought packs, samplers, bundles, mazos etc. As if that was not enough, three Humidors later, I joined the Cigar of the Month Club online at My love for cigars is growing, and getting more cigars at a bargain price is always appealing. Yesterday my monthly club sampler was delivered and the first cigar was randomly picked, cut and lit before looking at the cigar band. I just love surprises!

“This beautifully oily cigar burns perfectly and draws like a dream. A cigar that feels solid in the hand and is well constructed. It is on the full side of medium bodied and spactular. It features a nice spice for aficionados who prefer a fuller experience.” (

“…pronounced notes of dark chocolate, earth, and wood.” (excerpt taken from Cigars International The Tobacco Leaf).

The Villiger Colorado lived up to most of the hype. Normally I do not pay much attention to the listed flavor profiles of cigars because honestly, if a cigar tastes good to me, as far as I am concerned the cigar is a keeper! Up until yesterday, cigar’s flavor profile that I have smoked never came through to me, except the Villiger Colorado. It was not oily because of the recent shipment which some humidor time will revive, the burn was clean and the draw very smooth, until I could not fingertip it anymore. Very well wrapped and the 54 gauge complimented the rest of the Villiger Colorado cigar. When I smelled the smoke of the lit foot it was that of chocolate! I actually smelled chocolate! Then my tongue tasted the hint of sweet, it was an awesome first experience for me, and the fullness went consistently with the smoke and others flavors. Now, being truthful, wood and earth are not on my menu so there is nothing to report in that flavor profile area.
