Villiger Stokkeby La Capitana

Don’t worry if you have not heard of villiger stokkeby I had not before this either, so I did some research. So villager is an extremely well known pipe tobacco manufacture and recently decided to get into the premium cigar game. They had been making a few machine made cigars for a while and in 2009 they came out with their first premium cigar in America which was the 1888. This is where you may have heard the name before. Their newest addition to their collection of cigars is the La Capitana.

Pre light: The colors are beautiful it is almost a black wrapper which is a habano Colorado. It smells of spice and chocolate which were nice and strong smells. I liked what I saw and smelled so I cut it and started it up

First third: Unfortunately I was disappointed in the first third of the cigar those original smells were there but there flavors were not. At the start it was just more of a medium tobacco taste to it. I even was drawing twice before blowing the smoke out trying to get to those flavors but they were just not there.

Second third: As I got into my second third it started to get a little bit better. I started to get a little bit of spicy and sweetness to the smoke which was kind of nice to get rid of the young tobacco taste. The burn was virtually prefect and it held its ash very well.
Last third: The flavors slowly started to get a little bit stronger but still nothing extremely special. You get a little bit of nutty flavor towards the end and that is pretty much it. It is not a complex cigar the flavors are masked a lot by the taste of the younger tobacco.

I feel that this cigar would be better if you were to age it maybe leave it in a humidor for a few months and try it again. It just did not have the flavors that the initial sent gave away. I would like to try others of villigers cigars I think they have the ability to make a great stick but unfortunately this was not the one. I would encourage them to keep try and thanks for the sampler.
