Villiger La Flor De Inclan Lancero Especial

US$11 or RM45 each; US$275 or RM1,126 for a box of 25

This old Cuban brand was resurrected over a decade ago but then faded away. However, it was relaunched last year in Torpedo, Robusto, and Churchill variations with a new blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers, along with an Indonesian binder and a 12-year-old Ecuadorian wrapper. It proved an immediate success, but because different shapes bring out different flavours, something new was added this year—a 6 ¾ x 43 lancero. While the medium strength of the original blend is retained, the coffee and leather nuances are intensified. Only 500 boxes of 25 cigars each will be produced annually.
