AVO Cigars announced the latest limited-edition release, the AVO Seasons Limited Edition Series 2023.
AVO releases one cigar per season over the course of the year 2023. Each unique diadema captures the spirit of the respective time of year with its expertly blended tobaccos and aromas.
“This special release has been carefully created by our Master Blenders who have worked with tobaccos across multi-faceted origins to craft the perfect seasonal blends. Tobaccos from each cigar can be found from diverse growing regions such as Ecuador and the Dominican Republic, with tobacco aged for up to 14 years,” says Edward Simon, CMO at Oettinger Davidoff. “We encourage our aficionados to enjoy each cigar while experiencing a moment unique to each season: walking through a garden in spring, watching the setting sun on a summer evening, feeling the air turn crisp as autumn leaves fall, and sitting by a crackling fire in winter.”
The latest edition – Summer – will be in-market next Monday, June 19th.
The cigar reflecting summer is reminiscent of the hot sun that characterises and shapes the season. This diadema is vibrant, with an intensity level which reflects summer’s ever-present heat. The shiny and dark brown Ecuador Corojo wrapper adds complexity and at the same time delightful notes of pepper, whereas the Dominican filler tobaccos, one aged for 14 years, provide creamy and fruity notes. In the second third, flavours of dark chocolate enhance the overall taste experience.
Wrapper: Ecuador Corojo Binder: Mexico Filler: Dominican Republic
All four editions are presented in boxes of ten cigars each. The packaging design reflects each season individually with respective icons, varnished patterns, season-typical colours and graphics. As an ensemble, the boxes illustrate the flow of one whole year with visually connected patterns and themes. The cigars’ respective blends were created from different tobaccos to capture each season with a fitting taste experience. All blends come in a 50 RG x 6 5/8″ diadema format and are of medium intensity.
Globally, there will be 4000 boxes available per edition.
