The San’Doro collection from Villiger Cigars was introduced in 2015 and consists of three blends: San’Doro Maduro, Claro, and Colorado. The inspiration behind the project dates back to the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus and the subsequent fascination with tobacco from the Old World. The leaf was thought to be sacred, which East Indians referred to as "San’Doro," translating to "Holy plant from India."
The San’Doro Claro is a mild to medium-bodied cigar that marks the most delicate experience in the collection. Made at the famed Tabacalera Oliva S.A. factory in Estelí, San’Doro Claro features a silky smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut (Claro shade) wrapper and all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers.
The Claro is an easily enjoyable blend that offers a soft and nuanced smoking experience, known for delivering highlights of barnyard hay, green tea, honey, and salted/buttered crackers.
