At the outset, AVO Classic cigars were formulated for popular pianist Avo Uvezian by Davidoff, to position beside his piano. A pairing of 5 diverse Dominican tobaccos surrounded by silky smooth, blonde US Connecticut wrappers deliver a delicate, creamy smoke with an exceptional balance of flavors.
I smoke a lot of cigars, but this is by far my favorite, and I am stacking that up against Padrons, Davidoffs, Ashtons, Fuentes, all the cigars that year after year win best of awards on CA.AVO classics are in my opinion the gold standard. They are a mellow medium cigar, so if your preference is full bodied in your fave flavor, this may not be the stick for you. This cigar just leaves nothing to complain about. Burn, draw, and aroma are absolutely perfect. Flavor complexity is out of this world. Each pull varies slightly from the one before in flavor. It?s creamy and woody and complex, without ever being overpowering. Like a good meal, it just keeps me coming back for taste after taste, and whispering ?wow? under my breath every time.I may pull out big dollar smokes from my humidor to impress friends, but when I want to make myself happy, this is what I reach for.
