Avo Celebrates 85th with Dominican Puro
Posted: February 28, 2011
Pianist and Avo brand ambassador Avo Uvezian turns 85 in March, and Davidoff is commemorating the milestone (and continuing its trend of birthday Avo cigars) with the new 2011 limited edition Avo 85th.
This year, the cigar will be a double-tapered diadema shape that measures 6 5/8 inches by 50 ring gauge, and for the first time the release will be all Dominican. The Dominican wrapper is from Henke Kelner; there's an olor binder; and a filler blend of San Vicente and piloto Cubano tobacco.
The Avo 85th will retail for $17.50 each. Only 10,000 boxes (each containing 10 cigars) were produced.
The first event is on March 23-the day after Uvezian's birthday-at the Grand Havana Room in New York City. Uvezian is scheduled to tour the country until April 14.
