The legendary Avo Cigars No. 2 Cigar
The AVO Cigars No. 2 is misnamed, it should be named #1, at least in my book. Over the weekend I had the opportunity to spark one of these up and while I am not ready to be a Cigar Aficonado full time staffer, I know a good cigar when I smoke one. The Avo No.2 Cigar is more than just good.
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
As we were celebrating I couldn’t think of a better way to thank my friends and family than by sharing these great cigars with them. 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.
