Davidoff Releases Limited-Edition Avo

Davidoff Releases Limited-Edition Avo

Famed cigarmaker and musician Avo Uvezian turned 82 years old, and to commemorate his birthday, Davidoff of Geneva released the Avo LE-08 cigar, dubbed Tesoro, meaning treasure in Spanish. The cigar was released on March 24 with the usual fanfare in New York City at the Avo gala dinner held at Rothmann's Steakhouse. There, Avo fans were treated to a three-course meal, an array of Avo cigars and a chance to be among the first in the country to sample the new release.

Tesoro is a combination of Piloto and San Vicente tobaccos from the Dominican Republic tempered by olor tobacco and a sun-grown Ecuadoran wrapper.

Unlike previous limited-edition Avo releases, the Tesoro is cellophaned and comes packaged headfirst in unorthodox upright slide-top boxes of 20.

To read more about the Avo LE-08 Tesoro, see the next issue of Cigar Insider.
