Avo Classic Covers Coming Soon

Avo Classic Covers Coming Soon

For the first time since 2001, Avo Uvezian will not be releasing a limited-edition birthday cigar with Davidoff this year.

Instead, the company announced it is launching the new Improvisation Series, an annual limited-edition cigar meant to honor Avo the brand more than Avo the man.

The first cigar in this new endeavor is called Avo Classic Covers 2015 Limited Edition, a 6 inch by 50 ring gauge smoke that begins shipping on April 13.

Blended by Davidoff master blender Henke Kelner, the cigar is a play off of the recently repackaged Avo Classic blend, or as Davidoff puts it, a "cover." While the Dominican filler tobaccos are the same ones found in the Classic, the binder was grown in Mexico's San Andrés region and the wrapper leaf hails from Ecuador.

The new cigar sells for $16 and comes packaged in 16-count boxes, of which only 3,500 have been produced.

Whereas in past years Uvezian has toured the country to celebrate the release of his birthday cigar, there will be no tour for the Classic Covers.
