from the city's best tobacconist
Welcome to ~ Improvisation!
In keeping with Avo's commitment to smokes & music, the Improvisation Series was created without missing a beat.
First up, the Avo Classic Covers consists of different tobaccos from four different countries. There is also Nicaraguan tobacco in the blend – representing the first time this has been incorporated in an Avo blend. The Dominican tobaccos in the filler are what are “covered” by the Avo Classic Covers 2015.
The start to the Avo Classic Covers 2015 delivered a mix of grass, chocolate, and assorted pepper notes which alternate in intensity. The grass & pepper notes moved into the forefront early on while the pepper notes receded into the background. A creamy orange note emerged in the background joining the pepper notes.
Throughout the first third the grass and chocolate notes alternated in intensity. By the second third, the chocolate notes had the edge. Meanwhile the orange cream notes diminished. During the last third, the chocolate & grass mix returned with both notes once again alternating in intensity. There was a slight increase in the pepper spice, but it never quite eclipsed the chocolate and grass. This is the way the cigar experience came to a close. The resulting nub was cool in temperature and soft to the touch with a straight path burn. Nice for this autumn season!
