Avo Domaine is a truly indicative name because the fine tobaccos in the filler are grown right in Avo Uvezian’s own domain, in his property in the Dominican Republic. A combination of these excellent tobaccos from his estate, combined with a Dominican binder make the core of this cigar. The punch was added by the exquisite sun grown Connecticut-seed Ecuadorian wrapper. This wrapper tobacco is twice cured, once in Ecuador, and then in the Dominican Republic, adding a stronger taste and fragrance to the leaves.
AVO Domaine is one of the strongest cigar lines from Avo Cigars, now owned by Davidoff. Avo Uvezian, a celebrated Armenian-American Jazz pianist, had another passion besides music - cigars. It is said that Avo was disgusted by the exorbitant prices charged for good Cuban cigars and decided to create his own cigar brand. This quest led him to the Dominican Republic and Master cigar creator Hendrik Kelner. They came together and created the Avo Classic and the rest is history.
The cigars in this line are medium strength smokes, full, of rich flavors. Firmly constructed, they have a glowing milk-chocolate colored wrapper with slightly discernible veins. This cigar has a clean draw which fills your mouth with a lot of smoke on each puff, a cigar that has to be smoked slowly to savor the flavors.
Avo Domaine comes in six different vitolas, all of them good sized cigars. Avo Domaine, besides receiving a rating of 91 from Cigar Aficionado magazine, was also named among the top 50 cigars in the world. The intensity of the cigars in each pack is indicated in terms of musical notes, helping you pick the cigar that best suits your expectations.
