Quick Smoke: AVO Limited Edition 2008 Tesoro

18 Dec 2011

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Created for Avo’s 82nd birthday, this toro features an Ecuadorian sun-grown wrapper around Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. The Tesoro has cool, damp smoke with mushroom (a common characteristic of Davidoff-made cigars) and a creamy core. The mild smoke sports plenty of sweetness too, with cashew flavors. It’s far milder than any of the more recent annual Avo releases, but it may be my favorite. If you come across any of these, I’d suggest you pick one up.

Verdict = Buy.
