The Avo cigars are made from selected tobaccos, kept in store until they are fully mature. These contain a large proportion of a specially fermented, matured Piloto Cubano tobacco from the Dominican Republic. The binder leaf is best Olor tobacco from the Villa Gonzalez region, and a Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf provides the perfect finishing touch to the AVO cigars. Rich in flavor and mild-bodied, this perfect blend of five tobaccos offers smokers a perfectly balanced cigar. The line, first introduced in 1987, is handmade in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
