The pre-light is a bit grassy, but the first thing you notice after lighting up are the flavors of sweet cedar, nutmeg, and roasted nuts. As the cigar smokes, the flavors build slightly offering a dash of espresso on the finish. Like most Avos, the aroma is pretty seductive, too. The Intermezzo can also be paired with just about anything from sweet Port to single malt Scotch, or even a good micro-brew beer.
They’re not the cheapest cigars in the world, but well worth the investment, as they will age beautifully over time. If you’ve taken a recent interest in so-called “luxury cigars,” you may want to start with the Avo XO Intermezzo.
