There’s no denying it—when AVO Cigars are hot, they’re hot! For nearly two decades, the company’s most exciting cigars have come under their annual Limited Edition Series, today known as Improvisation Series. The 2020 edition was one such case, boasting one of the most clean and attractive presentations of any cigar throughout the year, and a high-caliber smoking experience to match. The blend—limited to 61,600 cigars total—consists of a wide assortment of high-priming Dominican tobaccos, being topped with an Ecuadorian Connecticut leaf that is almost copper in appearance. This leads into a dry and botanic start, with unique flavors along the lines of Campari liqueur. The profile then evolves, taking on a creamy texture and long-lasting characteristics of nougat, espresso, buttered popcorn, musk, and candy-like sweetness.
