Quick Smoke: Avo Classic No. 2

23 Aug 2019

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Avo Classic 2

The Avo Classic line sports a Connecticut-seed, sun-grown Ecuadorian wrapper around Dominican binder and filler tobaccos. The toro-sized No. 2 (6 x 50, $10) features the familiar musty, mushroomy notes that are typical of Hendrik Kelner creations, along with white pepper spice, cream, and macadamia nut. Construction isn’t perfect—the spongy smoke has a meandering burn line and a flaky ash—but the balanced, interesting taste is more than enough to earn my recommendation.

Verdict = Buy.

    This cigar was a treat. It has a beautiful wrapper, dark but not black, and a rich delicious smell. I really enjoyed it. The draw was a bit too easy, like puffing on air, but the look, firm feel and mild, smooth taste made up for it.
