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.

New Stock in at Got Cigars?

Yup, you read that right.  We’ve got some new cigars.

Oh, new thing too. I’m doing a part time bit helping out the owner so she can take some vacation time or spend time with her family.  It’s been fun so far!

Let’s see, just a few things that have come in:

Diesel Grind by AJ Fernandez

Diesel Grind: I left my full review here.  Basic takeaway was that this was a new release from AJ Fernandez for IPCPR and utilized a different blend than any of the other Diesel lines.

Pinar Del Rio:  These are one of the hidden gems of the industry. Nicaraguan hand made cigars with excellent quality and taste .We carry the Sungrown, the Maduro and Capa Especial (red)



Avo Syncro South American Ritmo: A personal favorite of mine, this

Avo Nicaragua Syncro South American Ritmo

cigar will get a proper review on this site soon.  Full bodied, beautiful, well crafted, this premium cigar will surely satisfy any fans of the late Avo Uvezian.  I prefer the torpedo in the box pressed Churchill size.

Brickhouse Natural and Maduro:  A solid re-release from Nicaragua

Brickhouse Natural and Maduro

by the folks at JC Newman, who brought this toasty, earthy cigar back from extinction as a tribute to J. C. Newman.

Macanudo Inspirado Red and Black:  Soft and supple, or more full bodied in a maduro, you decide. But we carry black, red and white!
