Avo Uvezian Celebrates 86th Birthday with Limited-Edition Cigar
G. Clay Whittaker
Posted: February 28, 2012
icon Avo Uvezian is about to turn 86 years old, and to commemorate the
occasion, Davidoff of Geneva will be releasing a cigar called La
Trompeta: this year’s limited-edition Avo.
Following the ongoing Avo theme of music, each 6 1/2 inch long, 54 ring gauge torpedo-shaped Trompeta has three circles of lighter Ecuadoran Connecticut-seed tobacco affixed to the cigar’s dark wrapper leaf to represent the three valves of a trumpet, hence the name.
This is the 11th year that Avo has done a birthday release. The tradition began with the Avo 75th Anniversary in 2001.
Scott Kolesaire, brand manager for Avo, says the Trompeta will be in stores in late March. Avo himself is scheduled for an eight-city tour which will begin March 22 in New York City at the Grand Havana Room, where attendees will be among the first to sample the smoke.
