Avo releases regional editions. In February of this year, AVO announced that they would divide the United States again. Last year, the Dominican cigar brand divided the country into West and East, like in the good old hip-hop rivalry days. This year, the country is divided into North and South, like during the civil war. Davidoff revealed more of the cigars and the blends in a press release.

In the spirit of Avo Uvezian’s undying passion for exploration, chance encounters, and unexpected connections, two unique blends have been crafted for the North and South regions. 

 Regional North Edition 

The Avo Regional North provides a combination of San Vicente and Piloto fillers from multiple regions in the Dominican Republic, perfected with a wrapper leaf grown in the Dominican Republic specifically for the purpose of highlighting the special Perfecto format. The cigar delivers a refined blend filled with notes of nuts, coffee, cedarwood, and leather that best match flavors experienced in a Northern climate. The cigars are encased in a powder blue box that represents the cool and crisp characteristics of the North. 

The AVO Regional North Edition is a 6⅝x50 Perfecto The Dominican wrapper is paired with a hybrid Olor Piloto Seco binder. The fillers are San Vicente Viso, San Vicente Mejorado Ligero, Piloto Ligero, and hybrid Olor Piloto Ligero. Only 4250 boxes are made. The cigars are released globally.

Regional South Edition 

The Avo Regional South Edition offers a perfectly constructed Torpedo format that delivers both balance and complexity. The complexity of the blend begins with the cigar’s multi-faceted filler and binder tobacco leaves comprised of Honduran, Dominican, and Peruvian tobaccos. The cigar is wrapped in a flawless Connecticut Ecuadorian wrapper to round off the cigar’s smooth and balanced smoking experience that is pleasantly filled with creamy, earthy, and a hint of peppery notes. The eye-catching, sunshine yellow box that represents the vibrant weather of the South encloses these beautiful cigars. 

The AVO Regional South edition is a 7×50 Torpedo. The Connecticut wrapper comes from Ecuador. The binder is also Ecuadorian Connecticut. The fillers are San Vicente Viso and Seco, Honduran Jamastran Seco, and seco tobacco from Peru. Of this blend, 4100 boxes are produced to be distributed worldwide.

About AVO 

“We are excited to launch the AVO Regional Limited Editions, consisting of two unique blends and executions. Each tailored to and inspired by the respective region of the United States. A second for the AVO Cigars brand to launch a limited edition made of two blends, all the more they should be savored together with fellow aficionados”, states Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG. 

 VO Cigars started when the brand’s founder, Avo Uvezian, a legendary jazz and cigar composer of global fame met cigar master blender, Hendrik Kelner, in 1982 in the Dominican Republic. Fruitful cooperation between cigar pianist and cigar composer began to develop which resulted in the launch of the AVO Classic Series; an almost immediate success. Two creative masters collaborated with one purpose: help aficionados to “SAVOR EVERY NOTE” in life through delightful cigars. Avo Uvezian was a man of the world who savored every note to the fullest. He cherished every moment in life with passion and showed an insatiable thirst for connections with people from all walks of life.
