    I am finishing my series of Avo cigar reviews (feel free to read my take on Avo Classic No. 2 & Avo XO Intermezzo) with a reliable and solid robusto – Avo Domaine 10.

    Appearance : [rating:5/5]
    As with most Avo cigars, it’s a beautiful piece. The wrapper can’t get any smoother and it’s quite oily.

    Construction : [rating:5/5]
    I consider this ‘gar one of the most reliable, construction-wise. I don’t remember ever having any difficulties.

    Flavor : [rating:4.5/5]
    Upon lighting, I am greeted with just a bit of spice with citrus notes. In the second third, the flavors are nutty and cedary, whereas the last third provides a nice earthy taste. Overall, a medium-bodied, quite mild, creamy cigar.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    The price can vary from one venue to another, so make sure not to purchase without checking at least a few shops. $6 looks like a fair price for this stick.

    Overall Rating : [rating:4.5/5]
    I find the Avo Domaine 10 to be a great cigar to begin the day with. I really love its light, elegant yet complex flavors. Furthermore, it has a construction I can always count on.

      I picked up a few which had some age on them (old blend/packaging). Excellent medium-flavour smoke.

      My Review of the Avo Domaine No. 10

      This cigar is one of my Go-To cigars. Whenever I can’t find something in the store that fits my taste for the day, I can always go over and grab a Domaine. The Domaine AVO is also a unique cigar that consistently gives you the same flavor and great construction cigar after cigar.

      This particular cigar is from a box I bought in May of ’10 that I’ve been aging. I am interested to see what a little time does to one of my favorite cigars.

      The draw is perfect, the construction is perfect and the burn is dead even. Of course this IS a Henke Kelner cigar, so I really expect nothing else.

      The first inch of the cigar yields a woodiness that is not as dry as other Kelner cigars. I also pick up coffee bean with just a touch of creaminess.

      Amazingly, the “sweet spot” shows up a little over an inch into the cigar. Anise and the non-dry woodiness abound! This, to me, is a result of the aging.

      Not much changes for the rest of the cigar, but I enjoy it right down to the nub.

      The Domaine is not a complex cigar, but it gives me the tastes and consistency I love.

      I certainly recommend aging your favorite cigars, patience pays off and if you like them fresh, wait until you try them with some age!

      Spot-on review. Completely agree. I’ve just recently been turned on to Avo and the Domaine 10 is top notch.

      I’d been poaching some less-expensive Avo cigars on CBid, when the price on these started dipping. I splurged on a fiver, and have not regretted it. There’s definitely more flavor, bolder, than the #2 maddie that had been my previous favorite Avo, but the 787 is still my Avo.

      Nice review, Carlo.

      This is probably my favorite Avo. Some of the flavors bring to mind the newer Illusione cigars.
