At IPCPR this year I picked up one of Villiger's new sticks from my Texas rep, the Villiger Selecto. I got the corona gorda and the lancero. As my free time has been limited, I decided the smaller 5x46, would fit my time window better. I've also never had any of Villiger's cigars, so this will be my first experience with them.
