Villiger Cigars San'Doro Colorado | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?

Villiger San'Doro Colorado
WRAPPER: Ecuadorian
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: Robusto (550)
ORIGIN: TABOLISA (Oliva), Nicaragua

NOTES: Warmly toasted notes delivered in a reddish hued imagery both of stick complexion, banding, and mind's eye. Cozy tobacco-forward. Inherently sweet and attainable. Some dried tropical fruits, cappuccino, buttery cedar. Pepper-spice is white & red pepper, clove, ginger, slight paprika. Underbelly is a sunlit and dense earthen note. Tangy through the nose. Finish is of a moderate sweet & sour length.

I'm at first struck by how tightly packed the thing is -- it does loosen/soften via progression in a manner not hampering, and maybe bettering, of performance. Burns on a bit of a stubborn wobble. The draw is somewhat snug til the second-half. Moderate the growing smoke out-put.

A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59

I smoked a previous offering of this blend on 114. Kaplowitz Radio Friday ((( link )))

"Villiger showed off the new San’Doro line at both the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in 2015. There are three blends in the San’Doro line: Brazilian Puro Maduro, Claro and Colorado. The name San’Doro comes from the Latin phrase, Indorum sang sancta, which translates to 'Sacred healing plant from India.'"
