Avo Uvezian was a famous jazz pianist and composer who also had a lifelong passion for premium cigars. During his playing days in Puerto Rico, he would purchase a few local cigars each night and place them on top of the piano for anyone who wanted to smoke. Eventually, these cigars became a hit with his fans, and in 1987, Uvezian met Hendrik “Henke” Kelner the mastermind behind the world-famous Davidoff brand, and the pair worked together to create a special cigar for Avo’s personal taste which was released the following year.
At first, the cigars were just called Avo, but now, its referred to as the Avo Classic, due to so many line extensions in the brand portfolio. Even though the Avo line includes Domaine, XO, Heritage, 30 Years, 90th Classic Covers, and more, the original Avo Classic is still considered the strong backbone behind the entire brand. This delicious mellow to medium smoke was an instant hit and garnered top ratings from industry experts and everyday smokers alike. And, along with the legendary fame he gathered from his piano playing and composing prowess, Avo quickly became very well- known as a major player in the premium cigar industry.
Crafted from an impressive blend of fully aged Dominican binder and long-filler tobaccos, and a beautiful silky-smooth Ecuadorian wrapper, the Avo Classic provides flavors of cocoa, toasted almonds, baking spices, and caramel, that are so smooth and creamy, it will immediately have you craving another. The simple, yet incredibly well-refined flavor profile of the premium Avo Classic cigar has made it one of the top-selling blends in the brand portfolio for 31-years!
Nicaragua, and Syncro Nicaragua Fogata. These three tantalizing offerings are made for well-seasoned smokers looking for a more powerful blend that still provides the rich and rewarding flavors that every Avo cigar provides.
