Customer Reviews of “AVO XO”
All I can say is that Steve-o and Brando are both dead on with their reviews of this fantastic cigar (AVO XO). Quit debating and just try a 5-pack, you won't regret it.

I bought a 5-pack of these while serving in Afghanistan to celebrate a friends B-day, the'yre AWSOME. My buddy "Lightning" kept talking about these cigars and how smooth they were, so I decided to suprise him and bought a few. When his B-day came around and I opened my travel Herf-A-Dor, he went crazy and was really suprised to see these GEMS. We smoked these at the end of our shift to signify the end of a great day. I love these cigars, my buddy was right. They're so smooth and great tasting, I will be buying more of these in the near future.

This is one great cigar, the 48x7 is a great value. Smooth to the end and consistent construction.
MG of Baltimore, MD
An impressive Cigar, that developes into a wonderful charater within a few inches. With it's perfect draw, long grey ash, and superb construction. It earns the title of a first class cigar.
DM of Taylor, MI
Pros: Fantastic flavor, absolutley delicious. Easy draw, sweet and satisfying. CONS: unbelievably uneaven burn, over an inch down one side however the flavor was so awesome I didn't even care Also, the burn was exeptionally fast. This spoke ... well... goes up in smoke much quicker than anything I've tried.

With all the great reviews I've read on this stick I bought a 5 pack to try it out. Not a fan. The first one went out on me twice and I didn't even set it down. At the half way marker this thing turned on me with scorching heat and bitter flavors. Oh well, on to the next, that's the fun of cigar smoking... the adventure. I don't expect them all to be great :)
JL of Middle Village, NY
Out of all the cigars I have smoked and there are quite a few, this has to remain one of the favorites. Nice even burn and wonderful creamy finish right to the end. I often take out my leatherman and use as a roach clip to get down to the last 1/4" of the nub. My cigar smoking buddy Stan, who got me into this expensive hobby many years ago would definitely approve of that last sentence. We have smoked many of these favorites over the years together.
Outstanding smoke to the nub. Smooth and consistent from initial light throughout.
EW of Williamsburg, VA
Bought this on Joe's daily deal......was excited after reading the reviews. Well, took out first cigar yesterday afternoon...the wrapper was coming off this bad boy. Thought that was strange. Got her lite and found the draw so tough don't think my Ex could get smoke out of it....terrible, tossed it the garbage....First impression they say are everything...this guy is not impressed.
SL of Horseheads, NY
Pretty good cigar but not amazing. Main flavor profile was meaty and savory, particularly at a few points during the smoke. No sweetness. Not really creamy, but was fairly smooth. Burned perfectly. Draw was a bit snug but not bad. It's not my typical flavor preference, as I like sweeter, creamier smokes. But it was pretty enjoyable.
One of my favorite smokes! I keep these babies stashed in a special (hidden) humidor.

I received my first ever AVO cigar from Brandon, back before he became a CI employee. (Yes, he purchased them at our retail shop and gifted me one later on down the road). It was the Maestoso size, and according to him, had over 8 months of age under its belt. I absolutely loved it and still hold this cigar (AVO XO Maestoso) within my top 5 smokes of all time.

There’s no doubt AVO cigars are some of the highest quality premium handmades on the market. Made in the Davidoff factory of the Dominican Republic, the same factory that produces Davidoff (duh) and The Griffin’s, the XO is considered the cream of the crop when it comes to regular production AVO cigars. It’s pricey, yes, but easily deserves every penny. The flavor is amazing, offering a deliciously smooth richness that’s creamy and nutty, backed by aromatic hints of toasted cedar. Although the cigar maintains this same character throughout, it is by no means boring or uneventful. The taste is one to be savored – robust, but velvety smooth with each draw, leaving a soft aftertaste that’s crisp and clean after each exhale, all while never escalating beyond medium in body. And construction is never a factor. The blend is always spot on, the wrappers are consistently flawless and the burn is straight and true every time. Other than the price, I’d be hard-pressed to find a downside to this cigar. If you have trouble spending top dollar for a cigar, don’t try this one, you’ll enjoy it far too much. But, if you’re used to spending Fuente-like prices on a regular basis, or looking to treat yourself, give the AVO XO a try.

I think I’ve been called a “cigar-snob” damn near as much as I’ve been called anything else in my life and believe me, if you added up those times it’d be one big digit! But you can’t please everyone and I guess I’d be guilty as charged for having a penchant for the pricey stuff.

This is one special smoke and one that will always have a home in my humidor. The XO line has a distinct and unique flavor that I have not encountered in any other cigar. If you’ve ever wondered how someone can describe a cigar as “nutty” this baby should serve as your benchmark. Just looking at this cigar you can see care and effort that went into producing it when you examine the fragile Connecticut Shade wrapper that envelopes the binder and filler that make this one of my all-time favorite smokes!

Medium-bodied in strength and unbelievably smooth in flavor, the XO line is unquestionably one of Davidoff’s finest. The perfect draw from cigar to cigar and rock-solid dark gray ash are testament to the fine craftsmanship that goes into every single stick. My advice is to pick up a few to enjoy now and if you really want to treat yourself pick up a few more and let them rest in your humidor for 12-18 months. Yeah, I know that’s along time but trust me, it’ll be worth the wait!
