Avo classics are my favorite, go-to smokes. I received some of these free when I purchased a box of my beloved classicos.In this, you won?t get what you experience from other Avo blends, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on your taste preference. This is a hands down, medium smoke from start to finish. It is smooth throughout, burns perfectly and requires no touch ups, as with all Avos. The flavor is predominantly sweet cocoa and coffee throughout. Smoke output is very good. I am smoking my third and they have been consistent. Humidor conditioning over several months has not significantly affected the cigar in terms of flavor or burn. It was great out of the cello, and a few months later, it is great now.The second third of the cigar, in my opinion, gets a little dry, with a few unpleasant notes of cut grass on the palate. First third and end are remarkable.I have come to love Avo classicos and XOs because my preference is a mild, smooth, woody smoke. This is a much stronger, medium chocolately smoke, crazy enjoyable if that?s your flavor preference. Definitely worth trying a few.
