Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

AVO Robusto Maduro

Usually I like Robustos for my reviews. But I have smoked quite a number of these babies. So I will go with a No. 2. First off, the signature Avo band looks gorgeous against the wrapper. Maybe it‚Äôs the dark background. Weird thing though, the cigar isn‚Äôt picture perfect. Don‚Äôt get me wrong, it is a well-constructed cigar but the appearance is a little rugged. Seams are tight and almost invisible. There‚Äôs a bit of tooth here and there, one or two soft spots, but an overall uniform spring. Soft notes of coffee and resinous wood emanate from the dark tan wrapper.

My mouth is already watering. Cold draw reveals the perfect milkshake snug draw. Fruity notes of cherry mixed with pecan wood came through the cold draw. Okay, let‚Äôs light this baby up.

First Third

My No. 2 Maduro starts off with a cocktail of rich creamy cherry notes and sweet molasses. But beneath it all smouldering notes of black pepper, oak, cocoa, and dark fruit hold down the fort. The draw is beyond reproach. Each draw fills my mouth with rich creamy cottony smoke. I attribute this to the special bunching of the fillers which makes for perfect air circulation. A few draws down and the different flavour notes morph into a balanced symphony. The only way I could describe it is a flavourful campfire on my palate.

Perhaps the best part is the long finish that brings with it delectable notes of cedar and cinnamon. Retrohale waxes luscious cream tagging delightful baking spice nuances.

Mid Third

In the mid third, my Maduro switches up a bit. Chocolatey sweetness, cream, and dry fruit notes push to the front of the palate. The balance is still impeccable only now certain notes rise and fall at will.

The woody notes retreat to the retrohale and the peppery disposition graduates from black pepper to red pepper. As I settle into the new transition, a decadent musty wood note appears in the background like a whiff of wind in the long finish. It‚Äôs bonkers! Strength has been a light to medium the entire time. The ash is a white tower of perfectly layered stacks. This is quite a cigar!

Final Third

AVO Robusto Maduro

It‚Äôs the final third already and I am not nearly done with my cigar. What gets me is the fact that this is the one Maduro that doesn't care about strength. It's a medium at best but the flavour profile knocks it out of the park. In the final third the flavours switch up again. Wood comes back to the front of the palate but this time round it‚Äôs charred. Cocoa, molasses, coffee, and dry fruit perform a synchronized dance all over my palate. The background, though, is reserved for musty wood and a growing earthiness.

Retrohale holds up creamy notes sprinkled with baking spice. As my Avo comes to a close, I can‚Äôt think of one thing I did not like about this smoking experience. The burn line remained razor sharp throughout with ash that defied gravity. But what else is to be expected from an Avo?

Overall Review

2020 may have been a challenging year for the world in general but this good thing happened. And while Avo Classic Maduro is not a new cigar, the news of regular production did bring joy to many lovers of the leaf myself included. If you are a Maduro maniac like me and have not had one of these then you are truly missing out on an amazing cigar. Grab yourself one and introduce yourself to aristocracy.

If you are a greenhorn, do not let the word Maduro keep you from a great cigar. Trust me, you can handle the strength just fine. Try it and let us know your experience. We love to hear from you.
