Villiger Cigars, the company that brought us an amazing release this year – the Flor de Ynclan – has announced today that they will be bringing the Cuellar Connecticut Kreme under the Villiger Brand. It may seem simple but the original branding never mentioned the name Villiger on it.
In the official press release Villiger North America President Rene Castañeda stated:
“Villiger Cuellar Connecticut Krēmē is one of our most popular cigar brands. It’s extremely creamy profile, combined with just a hint of spiciness, has made the brand a hit with consumers. This small change of adding the “Villiger” name on band and packaging, will help consumers better identify it as a Villiger brand.”
The press release noted that this is a continuation of the efforts to streamline branding, The new Cuellar Connecticut Kreme will be known the Villiger Cuellar Connecticut Krēmē.
The Villiger Cuellar Connecticut Krēmē is a mild to medium cigar, made in the Dominican Republic. Creamy and smooth, typical of most Connecticut shade cigars, the Villiger Cuellar sets itself apart, with solid construction and more flavor nuances, which include notable hints of spiciness throughout the smoking experience.
The Connecticut shade wrapper houses choice binder, and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic. The Villiger Cuellar Connecticut Krēmē is expressed in four sizes. MRSP is $6.00 to $7.00.
- Robusto – 5 x 48
- Toro Gordo – 6 x 54
- Churchill – 7 x 50
- Torpedo – 6.25 x 52
