FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 26, 2018
Before I get into this latest news from Villiger Cigars, let me just say that it is raining lanceros this year. Cigar brands are filling out their portfolios with line extensions and the most common extension this year is the lancero. So if you are a lancero lover, this is your year to get your fill.
The latest in the list comes from Villiger Cigars. The company has announced that the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan will be presented in a special edition Lancero Especial size, at the 2018 IPCPR in Las Vegas this coming July. The Villiger La Flor De Ynclan robusto in 2017 garnered a 93 rating, ranked as the number 10 cigar in the world by Cigar Aficionado Magazine and voted the 2017 number 6 cigar in the world by Tobacco Business Magazine. Even Stogie Press rated it #12 in our top 25 cigars for 2017.
The medium- bodied Villiger La Flor De Ynclan was described in Cigar Aficionado Magazine during their unveiling of the best cigars in the world in these words:
“The cigar is a fantastic smoke, sweet and charming from first puff to last, anchored by simple-yet-pleasing notes of chocolate and salt, and then refined by more precise intonations of walnut and orange marmalade. “
Boston Jimmie from Stogie Press noted:
The Villiger La Flor De Ynclan was an amazing cigar with consistent full flavor, perfect construction, and an incredible ash.
In the Villiger Cigars La Flor De Ynclan Lancero press release, the company noted:
A cigar- years in the making, Heinrich Villiger and Master Blender Matias Maragoto felt that the best version of the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan had yet to be released. The new Lancero Especial size is described as providing a more intense smoking experience in both flavor and smoke.

About the Villiger La Flor De Ynclan: Diligently crafted by Heinrich Villiger and master blender Jose Matias Maragoto of ABAM Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic, the Villiger La Flor De Ynlcan was a cigar 10 years in the making. Villiger Cigars produced a small batch of La Flor De Ynclan over a decade ago. Unsatisfied with the final result; the decision was made to cease production. The tobacco was set aside and aged, while Matias meticulously tweaked the amount of the Indonesian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan tobacco within its Ecuadorian wrapper. Present day, the La Flor De Ynclan is what both imagined it could be. The result was a smashing success as it received numerous accolades after its re-launch in 2017. The highlight being a 93 rating and being named the 2017 number 10 cigar in world by Cigar Aficionado Magazine.
