The legendary Avo Cigars No. 2 Cigar

It was my birthday, I was turning 41 and we had a few friends over to celebrate. We had music, food, and drinks. Everyone was having a good old time sharing stories, laughing at stupid jokes, and just talking about our youth when suddenly my wife surprised me with an amazing gift.

It was a box of Avo Cigars No. 2. As soon as I saw that little wooden box I couldn’t have been more excited. You can imagine the look on my friends’ faces when they saw it. All of their mouths watering, each just dying to have one.

I couldn’t resist; I immediately open the box and took in the pleasant aroma. I must say, I have to give credit to Mr. Uvezian for such a wonderful creation. The quality of the packaging and the product within was simply outstanding. The cigars were recommended to my wife by a coworker who usually smokes Avo Classic Cigars as a special treat that he purchase from Gotham Cigars. He explained to her all about these handmade Dominican cigars and how they were so enticing.

Characteristics of Avo Cigars No.2

We moved to the balcony with our scotch on the rocks in hands; the perfect complement to our Avo cigars. We lit the cigars up and they smoked perfect. These Avo Cigars No. 2 produced a creamy white smoke with an aroma that I could even sense outdoors. They smelled great, even my non-cigar smoking friends complimented their smell.

The taste was wonderful; it was a smooth creamy taste, very mild, with a touch of coffee, hazelnuts, and a hint of pepper. A puff followed by a sip of scotch was just amazing. My buddy, a seasoned cigar smoker who usually smokes Avo Cigars XO Maestoso which is more of a medium-bodied cigar really enjoyed it and commented on the taste.

The flavor was so delicate and sophisticated; these Avo Cigars are a complete work of art. For beginning smokers I would highly recommend Avo Cigars because they are very subtle with a good draw, taste, and burn.

As the evening progressed we relaxed with these slow burning cigars and took in the nice Downtown view from my balcony. It was an amazing night overall; I mean how often do you get to smoke quality cigars with good friends on such a special occasion.

Before you are able to smoke a cigar, relax or enjoy the great flavors of your favorite cigar, you have to refill the butane lighter.  If you follow these steps it should be easy to fill it up and begin to enjoy your cigar, after all your favorite cigar deserves the best cigar lighter.

How to Fill a Butane Lighter: 6 Steps

1)      The First step to filling your butane cigar lighter is turn it upside down to change the flame height adjuster to the minimum setting.  If it feels like it isn’t turning, don’t force it because it could mean that it is already the max or min limit, just try turning it in the opposite direction.

2)      It is important to get all of the air from inside out.  If you leave air inside the fuel tank, the lighter can malfunction because the air is keeping the butane from being injected into the tank.  To get all the air out you have to push the refilling valve with a screwdriver, or hold it upright and depress the gas release button, letting all the air out until you no longer hear the hissing sound.

3)      It is very important that you always refill the butane lighter upside down to insure that you are not injecting air into the fuel tank.

4)      Before injecting the butane gas, make sure to shake the can well.  Then press the refill stem directly onto the refill valve on the bottom of the lighter.  While holding the upside down lighter and the butane can in a straight position, let the gas into the lighter.  This should only take about 5 seconds to fill, but repeat shortly if it needs more.  Once full you will notice that the lighter is cold.

5)      Let the filled butane lighter sit until it reaches room temperature.

6)      Finally, turn the flame height adjuster back to your desired height, ignite and enjoy your stogie.
