The Heritage Series of AVO is a remarkable, medium to full-bodied blend that pays homage to the farmers, blenders, and rollers responsible for making AVO one of the industry's premier, super-premium brands. Avo Uvezian worked side by side with cigar-making legend Hendrik 'Henke' Kelner to select the finest Cuban-seed, Ecuadorian sun-grown wrappers attainable, and combine a robust mixture of Cuban-seed Dominican long-fillers inside. The result is a satisfying series of rich, complex flavors delivered in smooth, balanced fashion. The core is creamy with notes of toast and cocoa, and a touch of sweet cedar and subtle spices on the finish.
AVO Heritage Series was awarded a 90-point rating, noting: "A very dark and oily cigar that smokes evenly. It starts out a bit papery but warms to show a woody, leathery character and apple-like sweetness."
“The AVO is a cigar that must be tried in order to get the full smoking pleasure. I ordered a 5 pack out of curiosity, and it was one of the best orders I've ever made. What you have here is a great smoke in every area of a cigar. Things that matter such as draw, flavor that should satisfy any one, even burn all the way down, a real class act. Yes they are high in price, but you should treat yourself to a few of these at some point in your life. A good way to try these, is to order just one on your next regular CI order. I would give 10 to 1 odds that you will purchase more.”

“An elegant, rich and complex cigar. Dark, woody flavors shine in great balance. A classic tobacco flavor profile that excellently represents the craftsmanship and quality of Henke Kelner's blends from the same factory that produces Davidoffs and Griffins. If you can afford to smoke AVOs, this is worth the price of admission.”
