Avo cigars are the first premium cigars I ever smoked. The classic Avo No. 2 may be the cigar responsible for setting me down the path of premium cigar smoking and collecting as a hobby. It got me hooked on hand-made premium cigars. Way back then, the Avo No.2 was my expensive special occasion smoke, because in the beginning I had always thought that $7 for a cigar was extremely extravagant. My how things have changed… lol. Over the years I have moved away from the AVO brand as part of my regular rotation of smokes but it has still always held a special place in my heart because of its role in my early days of cigar appreciation. Today I have an Avo Domaine No. 30.

This is my favorite cigar. Ever. This was the 2005 Edition of the AVO LE or “Birthday” Cigar. This celebrated Avo’s 79th birthday. Every year I get excited for the LE release hoping it can equal this cigar, but it never has. The closest is the AVO 22 (2002) and the AVO Legacy (2004).

Ah… an AVO LE. They come out to celebrate the birthday of Avo Uvezian begining with his 75th. The Legacy celebrates his 78th. Every year I look forward to these small batch cigars. After all, my favorite cigar of all time came from the AVO LEs Series (the LE5 of course).

I figured with 4 years of age, this would have mellowed nicely. Boy was I wrong!

Continuing my selection of Avo cigars, today's review is for another lovely creation of Mr Uvezian - Avo Classic No. 2. I should have probably started the series with this cigar because this is IMO the perfect beginner's smoke... Mild, with an outstanding look/construction and a pleasant aroma. Read on.

I just noticed that there was not a single Avo reviewed here. I'm a big fan of the brand and soon will be reviewing a couple of my favorites (update: here they are; reviews of Avo Domaine and Avo Classic), so stay tuned. We'll begin with the Avo XO Intermezzo, a delicious medium-bodied mild robusto. From the Avo website, it appears that Avo Uvezian (creator of the brand) is a big fan of Zino Davidoff, so it's no surprise that some of his cigars seem to taste like Davidoff's.
