Quite an intense little cigar. A very strong flavor from start to finish is what you get with these firecrackers. They have a nice slow burn and a very aromatic smoke. Not something I would smoke everyday but save them for a nice evening on the back porch with a stiff drink.

I have had many good experiences with cigars int. I like the orders when taken. They don't try to sell 10 other things.

Excellent little cigars
I have been smoking these little cigars for over 30 years off and on. They are a great smoke with a taste I love. Delivery took over a week and I was not real happy with that.

Not what I was expecting
After enjoying the "black-licorice-flavored" cigars, I was expecting great flavor from these, but instead what I got was a a pretty blah cigar with a horrible aftertaste. Very disappointed.

I consider these as Cheroots. If you like licorice or Anisette you will like these jewels.

If you like black licorice, you'll love these Avavnti Anisette cigars. And you can't beat the discounted price from CI
My wife purchased these for me on New Years (2016) and IMO; these are the best tasting anisette treats on the planet. If you like black licorice, you'll love these Avavnti Anisette cigars. Plus they have a nice easy draw. And you can't beat the discounted price from CI. I hope they keep them in stock. I'll be buying them again and again... Randy C CA

Great to puff while outdoor grilling
The best cigar ever made! If you like licorice and never tried them, its worth a shot. You might be missing out if you don't.

Have smoked Avanti (anisette) cigars for years. Delivers a smooth licorice flavored smoke with even burning. Especially good while performing outdoor tasks.

Great Cigars at a Great Price
CI has been my go-to place to get cigars for as long as I can remember. They are to only place I buy quantity and they always arrive packaged perfectly and very quickly. And they have absolutely the best customer service!!

@20% of cigars rolled badly and don't draw...
Inconsistent in the rolling to the point that some are rolled too loose and don't draw and some are rolled too tight and also don't draw. At least 2 like this to every 10 which is unacceptable. Lousy QA obviously. I have written to the manufacturing company directly as buy 100 at a time but they simply ignored. Not good!

Satisfied as always
I have been a long time smoker of Avanti and used to order direct from them. Until a friend turned me to CI and I found you sold my favorite smoke for much less. Always happy with the products and service. Keep up the great work!!

If you like licorice!
You either love licorice or hate it, but these little cigars pack a ton of flavor and being dry cured don't need to be stored in a humidor. 1 out of 5 seems to have a hard draw but I've found that by running a poker through them the draw becomes manageable. Great kick around cigar that doesn't lose anything if you lay it down for a couple hours.

The avanti (anisette) is a very good cigar, but for me, it is alittle too strong. Considering the other choices, like rum or amoretto.

Need to like the flavor
These cigars have a very strong anisette flavor, this is not just a hint of flavor. So if you do not like anisette do not purchase. But I do like them for an every now and then smoke and they do last a while.

The foil pack Avanti seem
The foil pack Avanti seem to be a little stronger to me than the five-pack box. They also burn longer I guess because they are moister

An Acquired Taste
A throw-back to the old days of men playing cards or dominos in the street or hanging out in a local café. The aroma is strong, and you can smell the anisette even when they're not lit. I like them after a meal, but only outside. These are not smooth, hand-made puros, these are your Grandfather's cigars, especially if he was Italian (DeNobilis also). Give them a try if you're curious as to what some men smoked back in the day. You might be surprised.

Good smoke and not too pricey.

Avanti in 3-Pack Foil Packaging
I especially like the foil 3-pack as they are opposed to the 5 pack in the box and sleeved individually, which are dry.

A great little smoke
For a little cigar, I'ts full of flavor. It's my go to cigar while working in the yard or just relaxing. The only way to make it better would be to make it as long as the Anisette cordial foil at 4.5". Another good smoke.
Customer Testimonials
....this is a steal and a good unusual smoke. Love the Anisette; not too sweet or bitter, just right. Smokes about 25 mins; good for a small Cordial.
This Anisette has one of the best fragrance of any cigar I've ever tried, but unlike so many of the others, the flavor of Avanti outshines even the aroma. It is one of the tastiest cigars I've ever had!
These are excellent anisette flavored cigars. When you light one, if there are any girls around, they will approach you and ask what that is that smells so good. I have not found anyone that finds them offensive, to the contrary, everyone loves the smell. They burn GREAT, they last unexpectedly long - two beers (enjoying slowly--about 45 minutes) per cigar. They are on the medium-strong side and the best part is that they are dry cured so you never need a humidor and the flavor stays as long as you have them. I love them because I can take them hiking, motorcycling, fishing, etc and they stay fresh no matter how many days I'm out and about. If you like a flavored cigar in anisette you will love these. There is no sugar on the wrapper, just anisette.
Just picked up the Avanti Estilos in a 2-fer deal. They have a very strong aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is fantastic, just like how it smells, but not overwhelming. Goes great with a cup of coffee in the morning.
Let them rest! I bought the 2fer in foil pouch. The anisette was way to sweet for me right from the foil. Took them out of pouch put in separate coolerdore. Wow, after a few weeks they were terrific after dinner smoke. A great change of pace. Still a bit too sweet for my morning cigar.
The Avanti Anisette infused cigars are fantastic and I enjoy them a lot. I bought the 2 new varieties thinking they would be just as good. I was mistaken....They are shorter than the Anisette Avanti cigars that come in boxes of 5 and they are also much more moist. The bst way to describe the mocha variety is that smoking one is what I imagine it tobe like to smoke wet chewing tobacco. While I highly reccommend teh Anisette cigarillos from Avanti, do yourself a favor and avoid the mocha.... The Anisette versions in the yellow ox are very enjoyable and a lot like smokinga glass of absynthe.
Like Anisette, Ouzo or Bassett's? Like your espresso dark and strong? Then this might be your thing. Consistent 1" ash and no-humidor friendly.
avanti great taste had a very hard draw, I stopped buying them for about 1/2 year. started buying them again because of the great taste. WOW they must have read all the bad reviews. THEY WENT FROM A VERY HARD DRAW TO VERY EASY DRAW. ALL 50.... SO I BOUGHT 100....WOW SO FAR EVERY ONE IN THE NEW ORDER IS ALSO VERY EASY GREAT IMPROVMENT
I LOVE black licorice, these are great change of pace smokes..STRONG on taste (licorice wise) so I smoke a lil then go back and finish them, get anyway 3 go arounds on each of these lil hard packed lil boogers..have gave a few to friends who like licorice also and they were amazed..its like smokeing a twizzler except these are MUCH easier to light ;)
Love these, always have.Taste good lit or unlit. Also love parodi and denobili cigars (same company right here in U.S.A.)
I don't necessarily enjoy black licorice, but I decided to give these a try. This isn't an everyday kind of smoke, but it is nice to change up the pace every now and then with an Avanti. Like others said, the draw is perfect on some, tough on other sticks. I would buy these again.
I enjoy the taste of licorice and have been known to add sambuca to my coffee, so when I saw these at a nearby cigar shop I gave them a try. I am really enjoying these on my morning commute, along with my travel mug of coffee! These have a great aroma, both before and after lighting. If you like black licorice, you should enjoy these too. They are not sickly sweet and the taste is consistent. My only criticism is that the draw is not consistent from cigar to cigar. Some are fine, but some seem to be rolled too tightly because they make you work a bit harder than you should have to. An inexpensive cigar that can be enjoyed daily. Recommended.
I really like licorice so decided to give these things a try. I'm not sorry I did. I like the pre-light aroma and the subtle licorice/anisette flavour whilst smoking. It's not likely to become my favourite cigar, but I think I'll keep a few around just for a quick change-of-pace. A worthwhile wee cigar.
These cigars a pure garbage. the worst draw in the world, might as well try to lite and smoke the end of a stick. They had a horrendous offensive odor just sitting in the box. Needless to say I kept them far away from my humidor. We tried smoking 3 of these and didnt come close to a quarter way done with either of them. I gave the rest away to a friend who owns a drinking establishment and he didn't want them, but he took them anyway and put a free sign above them......after many months he finally had to throw the last 5 pack in the garbage. They are that sickening, ps there nothin like ol gramps used to smoke ;)
These are a great tasting little treat!! my uncle got me to try these several years ago, and i love them! Im slowly getting my friends to try them LOL
Nice little flavored cigar that doesn't taste like it was dipped in dish washing detergent. No chemical taste that most flavored cigars suffer with in this cigar. Great tobacco flavor sets off the liquor flavoring. If you want a flavored cigar with a sweet aroma this is one of the best you can buy----I actually prefer it to couple of Acid Cigars I've tried. I am not partial to the licorice taste and I wish that CI would offer the Ramrod version flavored with bourbon whiskey.
I love these. Avanti has become my everyday smoke. These take about thirty minutes to burn making them good for a commute. Two of my buddies are now Avanti devotees as well. These are one of those cigars that you can hang from your mouth without lighting. It smells good.
Don't expect a smooth smoke here! This is a MAN'S cigars my friends! This cigar is the equivalent of smoking sambuca! A delicious sweet, spicy and aromatic cigar that will let everyone around you know that you have arrived! What's great about this is that you could keep this in your mouth without worrying about it getting soggy and break apart (like Clint Eastwood did in the cowboy movies).
These are the original "fire-cured" cigars that your Italian grandpa used to smoke (Avanti). It's a licorce taste that's really unique and gives a sweet-smelling smoke that won't offend your girlfriend. If you might try the "Ramrod" version which are soaked in All-American bourbon whiskey. There is also a version which is flavored with Red Wine, but it's impossible to find.
