The Avo Classic is a 90-rated cigar (by Cigar Aficionado) that has the signature flavors that master blender Henrik Kelner is known for earthiness and cream. The details are similar to other smokes in the Avo lineup: an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a Dominican filler blend, but that’s where the similarities stop. 25 years of maturing take the tobacco from fresh and simple flavors into something fascinating and complex.
People have reported a wide variety of flavors coming from the Avo Classic cigar. Some find that the profile sits in the grassy area of the flavor wheel, with things like sweet tea, graham cracker, and a coffee finish. Others have reported a creamy sweetness that develops into darker flavors like kola nut and black pepper. Whatever you find after lighting it up, just know that it may not be what everyone else is reporting – this smoke is complex and will be all yours once it gets going.
Over two decades have gone by, so we’ll stop talking. It’s time to smoke this one!
