Villazon at CI

Just got the Cigars International catalog in the mail, and thumbing through it I run across on page 64 a new item, really two items...Villazon bundles. These are branded as Villazon Natural and Villazon Maduro.

Both lines come in the same four sizes, all with a ring gauge of 54:
Robusto 5", Toro 6", Presidente 7.2" and Belicoso 6.1" which will be the "out" or smokable shape for those who don't like girthy cigars at 54 r.g. Make a small cut on the belicoso and you have a more reasonable ring gauge.

The natural has a Sumatra wrapper and is marketed as mellow and mild, while the maduro is shown as strong.

Enter the new king of bundled cigars

The Villazon factory has long been associated with formidable and dominant brands, from the original non-Cuban Punch, to Hoyo de Monterrey, to the uber-popular Excalibur. In short, you might not know the name, but you’ve absolutely had the cigars. Now, the Villazon factory has produced a bundle bearing its own name, and the cigars are just as amazing as the brands listed previously… but without the high price tag.

Villazon Natural features a choice Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper aged for years to reach the ideal conditions. Underneath, a Broadleaf Maduro binder encompasses Honduran, Dominican, and Colombian filler tobaccos to create a complex medium-bodied blend. Each puff gives way to a balanced and smooth profile with natural tobacco sweetness, cream, and slight hints of black pepper.
Fabrica Villazon
Prices range from $39.99 to $49.99 for bundles of 20.

Has anyone tried these yet? Are these Consuegra re-branded or something a little different. I am intrigued.
