Avo North and South

AVO North & South Regional Limited Editions

AVO Cigars announces two more regional editions. With “North” and “South”, last year’s “East” and “West” editions complete the cardinal points.

Regional North Edition
The Avo Regional North highlights the Perfecto format with combination of San Vicente and Piloto fillers from multiple regions in the Dominican Republic, and a wrapper leaf grown in the Dominican Republic. Accoring to the manufacturer, the cigar delivers notes of nuts, coffee, cedarwood and leather that best match flavours experienced in a Northern climate. The cigars are encased in a powder blue box that represents the cool and crisp characteristics of the North.

Regional South Edition
The Avo Regional South Edition  Torpedo format. The blend features filler and binder tobacco leaves comprised of Honduran, Dominican and Peruvian origin. The wrapper comes from Ecuador (Connecticut seed). The manufacturer promises creamy smoke, earthy aroma and pepper notes. A sunny yellow box symbolizes the sunny weather in the south.

“Each of the two cigars is tailored to and inspired by the respective region of the United States. A second for the AVO Cigars brand to launch a limited edition made of two blends, all the more they should be savoured together with friends”, states Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG.
