Villiger San’Doro Claro – Rough Cut Cigar Review

San'Doro Claro

Today we offer the Stogie Press Rough Cut cigar review notes on the Villiger Cigars  San’Doro Claro cigar. I received samples of the San’Doro Claro from Villiger Cigars last month and would like to thank them very much for the samples. The  San’Doro Claro is described as a mellow, easy-going cigar with woody notes and a bit of spice. The San’Doro Claro is made at Oliva’s TABOLISA factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. It was introduced at the 2015 IPCPR.

The San’Doro Claro is available in 4 vitolas:

  • Robusto – 5 x 50
  • Toro  – 6 x 50
  • Churchill – 7 x 50

The  San’Doro Claro blend is described as:

  • Wrapper – Ecuador Connecticut
  • Binder – Nicaragua
  • Filler – Nicaragua

For this review I sampled the San’Doro Claro Robusto
