"Yellow/Original Is Better Than The Classic!"
I purchased these about a month ago with the $40 AMEX promo. At $290 these are usually not worth the price. But if you can get them at a heavy discount like I did, then jump on them.
They start off very crisp and creamy, gradually developing into a flavor profile of coffee, cedar, and light pepper while still retaining the cream. Smoke is thick and tasty.
There are major differences in taste and aroma between these and the Classic series. These are a little stronger, and have more pepper in them. They also cost more. Catch them on sale!

Draw was good but appearance was a bit flawed, it had a a few tears in the wrapper but only cosmetic because it didn t leak any. Burn was meh, it didn t require any touch-ups but did require a few extra puffs to keep the wrapper burning. Taste was fairly good 88/100, nice and smooth all the way through but a little boring.

I favor full flavored maduros, but this is one of the few "mild"cigars that I find completely satisfying. The flavor, burn, and construction are all exceptional. The only negative is the price, which is clearly overblown.

"Creamy Dreamy Fantastic Stoogie"
A pleasure from start to finish. It's the stick you will reach for when you lift the lid of your humidor. Even burn, smooth creamy smoke, great overall smoke.

Horrible! I bought this stick on my local tobacco shop and is terrible. No flavor at all and not to much smoke. Will never buy again.

"Good. But, Not Great."
I liked this cigar. I've smoked the Cuban version (or so I was told). It didn't knock my socks off. For the same or less money I'd still go with the AVO Classic #2.

"Will buy more"
1st one I smoked was a fail but the rest (of 5) were awesome. Rich, mild taste with an even burn and a good draw.

"The best sample i've ever tried"
Very good sample. Perfect smoke, soft and rich taste. If not the high price, I would have bought these cigars all the time!
