The new Avo L.E.07 cigar is launching in celebration of musician Avo Uvezian's 81st birthday. The L.E.07 is the brainchild of Uvezian and Hendrik Kelner, the maker of Avo and Davidoff cigars. Years in the making, the 5 5/8 inch by 48 ring toro will not be officially released until April 24, but samples will be available to participants of the Avo Uvezian Limited Edition Cigar Dinner Tour. Aficionados will be able to try the new cigar as well as meet Avo in person.
The next Avo Dinner is slated for New York City on Friday, sponsored by Davidoff of Geneva on Madison Ave. and Davidoff Columbus Circle. It will be held at Rothmann's Steakhouse in Manhattan and will comprise a four-course dinner, complimentary Avo cigars, (including the L.E.07) and entertainment provided by Avo Uvezian's jazz band.
For the complete story on the L.E.07, see the next issue of Cigar Insider.
