Just not too long ago we received the sad news of Mr. Avo Uvezian passing, this could be the latest project he was working on, so let’s pay respect to our master and get to smoke this fantastic cigar. As he used to say: “Much like music, sometimes you find the notes and sometimes the notes find you.”
This new AVO Improvisation LE17 features a blend of rare tobaccos carefully aged and it only allows the production of 2000 boxes. This is to this days one of AVO’S most unique blends in a limited release. With and Habano Ecuador Marron Claro wrapper, binders Olor Zona 7 from the Dominican Republic and a combination of fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic namely Esteli Ligero, San Vicente Ligero, San Vicente Mejorado Seco, Piloto Ligero and Piloto Seco. The level of exquisites in this blend is to the detail.
For the first time, AVO is making a six by sixty (6 x 60) ring gauge cigar that is also Box Pressed. This is the fifth installment of the AVO Improvisation series. The cigar is an improvised collaboration from the previous release of AVO Syncro Nicaraguan, Syncro Nicaragua Fogata and the Coveted AVO LE 2005.
