Quick Smoke: Avo 2013 Limited Edition The Dominant 13th

21 Apr 2013



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.”

If there’s a cigar with a better looking wrapper, I’ve never seen it. The Ecuadorian Habano 2000 applied expertly to this Limited Edition (6 x 52) is silky and veinless. Befitting the name—a complex chord used in jazz arrangements—the filler combines numerous Dominican leaves and Peruvian tobacco. The smoking experience is complex as well, though somewhat delicate and requiring careful attention. Issued to celebrate Avo Uvezian’s March 22 birthday, the $15 toro is a fine smoke. And if you buy one of the 9,000 boxes of 10 you’ll get a USB stick with Uvezian performing a song composed in honor of the cigar.

Verdict = Buy.
