30 Years at the top
2018 was a big year for Davidoff cigars. Not only did they celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Davidoff brand, but they also celebrated the 30th anniversary of AVO cigars, a brand that they produce and distribute. For the AVO brand, they celebrated by re-releasing some old limited edition blends that have disappeared from the market with new 30 Years secondary bands. The AVO 22 30 Years blend is probably one of the best in the lineup.
Originally released in 2002, AVO 22 was a special cigar for Avo Uvezian, founder of AVO cigars, who was born on March 22nd and also arrived in the US for the first time on the 22nd. The blend is the same delicious concoction as the original – a golden brown Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper over a Dominican binder and four different varieties of Dominican long-filler. It’s a pleasant mellow to medium-bodied cigar with notes of sweet cedar, bread, pepper, and earth. Only 3,200 of the beautiful upright canisters of 19 were produced, grab one while you still can.
