Cigar Review – La Flor Dominicana Superbowl 2019 Edition

I’ve been a huge fan of anything LFD has done, including the Capitulo I and II. This latest release was created to celebrate the superbowl and while it carries a hefty price tag in the shops, ($20+/-) We ended up with a few boxes at Got Cigars in Decatur and I had t try one.

The first thing to notice about this cigar is the obvious, cutout pattern of the goal lines and football on the top. I was interested to note how this would change the flavor overall, figuring it would add some level of complexity.

In earnest, the cigar is a straightforward vitola, Solid burn line, good draw producing a healthy bit of smoke, the cigar smells a little creamy but the earthiness comes out full force. It’s not a heavy pepper bomb like a lot of the LFD stock. More balanced. Good medium finish on a medium boied cigar.

Cigar Review – Avo Classic Toro

I’ve been making my way through the Avo line as of late. Founded by Avo Uvezian and distributed by Davidoff of Geneva, the Avo line speaks of premium pleasure.

The Avo Classic is a medium bodied blend composed of 25 year old tobaccos using Dominican fillers and binder, and finished with an Ecuadorian wrapper.

The tastes are smooth, mellow. Hints of vanilla, creaminess, touch of nutty flavors come out as well. With something produced by Davidoff, the burn is satisfyingly even, the draw, easy. Smoking time was around an hour and a half.

It’s not a complex cigar, but you’re not looking for complexity in this blend. Toward the end, the power picked up, as did tastes of spice, but that was short lived because the cigar itself is just about done.
