AVO Cigars was the result of a collaboration between acclaimed Jazz musician Avo Uvezian and legendary cigar maker Hendrik Kelner. The musician and the cigar blender combined their creativity and their quest for perfection and created superlative cigars that have gained a loyal following among cigar smokers.
Since the release of the first Avo cigar in 1988, these cigars have been among the first choices of cigar lovers everywhere. Avo Cigars are handmade in the Dominican Republic, using the most exquisite tobaccos to make cigars that invite rave reviews and keep cigar aficionados coming back for more.
The many brands under the Avo name offer something different to cigar lovers. The Classic brand cigars are mild, delicious smokes. The XO, which have a musical theme in the names of each line in the brand, are more full-bodied. The Avo Puritos offer pure tobacco delights in smaller sized cigars. The Signature line, that was released to mark the 75th birthday of Avo Uvezian, is composed of a special blend.
The Domaine and the Heritage lines are stronger, medium to full-bodied cigars. Avo Maduro is a Maduro wrapper version of the Avo Classic line. There are other popular cigars from Avo like the Avo Limited Edition series which are released almost every year, and the Avo 787 cigars. All Avo cigars are blended and crafted with care by master cigar makers. They are all handmade in the Dominican Republic.
