Quick Smoke: Avo Heritage Short Corona

31 May 2015

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.”


The Avo brand recently underwent a revamp by its parent company, Davidoff. Many retailers put the older generation Avo cigars on discount. For example, I’ve seen the fuller-bodied Heritage line (already one of the better value Avo brands) selling for under $100 for a box, or with substantial free throw-in items. The petite-sized Short Corona size showcases the full-bodied flavors of the line, which has a dark, sun-grown Ecuadorian wrapper over a Dominican binder and Dominican and Peruvian filler. Strong leather, charred oak, nutmeg spice, and earth are all evident in the little smoke. It isn’t my favorite size in the Avo Heritage line, but don’t overlook the Short Corona if you want a tasty 30-40 minute smoke.

Verdict = Buy.
