"I wouldn't write this cigar off without trying at least another one in hopes that the construction issues were a fluke. When this was functioning properly there was a nice soft leather and sugary sweetness that I typically would have enjoyed in a mild-medium bodied cigar. " -John I. (John I.)
"The cigar started off well, developed nicely, then finished with a slight harshness that wasn't quite enjoyable. It heated up quite a bit in the final third. Maybe smoking it slower would eliminate this, but I am not 100% sure. All in all a decent smoke. The power behind it as it transitioned through the final two thirds was a bit of a surprise, and may prove too strong for a newer smoker. I was expecting it to stay in the medium range with the sweeter notes from the beginning." -Kevin A. (Kevin A.)
"Flavor profile notwithstanding, this was a smooth and easy smoke. If you're a fan of floral cigars, with a simple expression that you don't have to think a lot about, this could make a nice Sunday morning cigar with a cup of tea and a good book. But it's a miss for me." -Vance T. (Vance)

“Overall this was a very good cigar for me. I really liked the peppery spice at the start and then the transition into a more balanced smoke. It kept the spice throughout which was nice. Construction wise this cigar can’t be beat.” –Wes (SosaCub4Life)
Basel, January 2015. AVO Cigars, the globally renowned cigar brand ventures into a new era. AVO Cigars is being relaunched in early 2015 behind contemporary packaging, new communication and a streamlined range that focuses on core lines.
"If the cigar smoked as well as the last third did I would have loved this cigar, but the first two-thirds were kind of flat for me. I would have expected a longer smoke time cause of the size but I feel like this is a mix-filled cigar so it burned a little quicker than I would have liked. I would recommend this cigar to a newer cigar smoker cause it shows some small transitions and won't overwhelm them. " -Estevan Z. (TheRealBanzi)

"This was a very flavorful, well executed, mild cigar. The constant reminder of sweetness paired with the various other notes made this cigar a pleasure to smoke. While it did not have many flavor descriptors, what it offered was a great experience that I would definitely revisit in the future when I am in the mood for something milder and elegant." -John A. (Bostoneo)
