Pinellas Park, FL – March 8, 2017 – AVO Cigars, the globally renowned brand, is proud to announce the fifth installment of the prized AVO Limited Edition Improvisations Series: AVO Improvisation LE17. The AVO limited series, based on unexpected music and cigar inspirations that create rich noteworthy experiences for all to celebrate, has progressed in a new direction, creating many firsts with this 2017 release. Inspired by a retro guitar case, the prominent AVO Improvisation LE17 packaging features a full black leather exterior with orange leather interior lid and dual silver clasps.
The AVO Improvisation LE17 is the remarkable result of an improvised collaboration from a trio of previously released AVO cigars: AVO Syncro Nicaragua, AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata and the coveted AVO LE05. The new blend utilizes the same variety of Dominican binder and filler tobaccos that were featured in the AVO LE05, blended with the same Estelí, Nicaragua filler tobacco used in the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata and presented in the 6 x 60 boxed pressed format of the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Special Toro.
“When developing the fifth AVO Improvisation blend, I wanted to use the foundation of my fifth AVO Limited Edition ever released, the celebrated AVO LE05, to see if we could craft something extra special,” reveals Avo Uvezian. “When we blended in filler tobacco from Estelí, my palate immediately began to dance with the many flavor notes. The combination worked so well together that a 60-ring gauge format was the proper way to fully showcase this wonderful arrangement, finished in a flawless box pressed shape.”
As the first AVO Limited Edition in a box pressed format and the first to be offered in a 60 ring gauge, the AVO Improvisation LE17 blend utilizes 7 different tobaccos from 3 different countries, delivering complex and intense palate stimulation with a perfect balance of thick cream and earthy spice. The filler tobaccos consist of Nicaraguan Esteli Ligero and Dominican Seco and Ligero, encompassed by the Dominican Olor Zona 7 binder leaf and tastefully covered with the Habano Ecuador Marron Claro wrapper.
