Villager Export cigars are short square cigars of Swiss origin since 1888, with Havana blend natural leaf tobacco filler and binder in a Sumatra Natural or Brazilian Maduro wrapper. These cigars' milder taste, quicker smoke time, square shape and small size make it a one size fits all cigar for anyone to enjoy. The secret behind the square shape is from being pressed into the box which was originally done to fit more cigars in the boxes. As it turned out, it also made for a longer burning cigar, which in turn gives the cigar more flavor and richness. Being box-pressed and dry-cured, the cigars have a longer shelf life, ensuring freshness and worry-free storage.
Let's talk about the tasty characteristics of Villager Export cigars. The Sumatra Natural, medium in color and oily wrapper, can be described as woody and peppery pre-light, the first-third is stronger pepper and herbal notes, and the last third is full-flavored with pepper and wood. The Export Maduro has a chocolate color wrapper, less veiny than the Sumatra Natural. Its aroma is nuts and dark tobacco. Nutty, coffee and cocoa is the flavor of the first third, with the nuttiness taking a step back as the coffee and cocoa strengthen in the second third. In the last third, pepper comes through, spice is present and the coffee note is stronger still.
More full-bodied than the Sumatra Natural, the Villager Export Maduro is probably more for the seasoned cigar smoker, as the Villager Export Sumatra Natural is more for everyone, including the cigar beginner. Both cigars are of solid construction and burn evenly. Villager Export are great little square cigars to take along anywhere and enjoy on the go anytime, any place.
