Avo 85th Anniversary Limited Edition 2011

One of the perks of working in a cigar store is getting to smoke new cigars before they are released, even if it is only a couple days before the release date. I have been lucky enough to procure a Avo 85th Anniversary Limited Edition 2011 and thought I would share the experience.

Avo 85th Anniversary LE 11 is blended using a combination of San Vincete and Piloto Dominican tobacco held together by a Peruvian binder and finished off with a Sun Grown Dominican wrapper. This blend gives the cigar a medium to full body with a medium strength. The Diadema shape really highlights the taste of the wrapper from the beginning. The Avo LE 2011 is rich and leathery; it coats the palate with a long finish tasting of coffee and cream. It is a very elegant and complex cigar. Pre-orders are currently available at
