AVO
XO

While performing in Puerto Rico, the legendary cigar figure and jazz artist Avo Uvezian shared that he used to buy local cigars nightly, placing them on the piano for anyone in the audience who wanted to enjoy them. Over time, these cigars gained popularity among his fans. In 1987, Avo Uvezian crossed paths with Hendrik "Henke" Kelner from Davidoff, leading to a collaboration to craft unique cigars for the musician.

Regarded by many as the pinnacle of Avo's craftsmanship, the XO stands as a more robust rendition of the Avo Classic. Originating from the Dominican Republic, the Avo XO maintains its allure among cigar enthusiasts globally, enduring the test of time akin to any creation from the renowned Avo Cigar Company.

Cigar Aficionado

Tangy citrus notes set the tone for this fairly mild cigar, which smokes evenly. It’s also herbal and cedary with hints of toffee, cinnamon and vanilla, but remains a light smoke throughout.

88/100

Kohnhed

I’m getting a rush of flavors with the creaminess and mixed nuts leading the charge. Behind it is the bread and ginger ale. The sweetness takes over from here and the red pepper is just hanging on for dear life. Besides the aforementioned flavors, there are no more enticements. The body started out mild and by the end of the first third, hit medium.

The Cigar Authority

The nose of the foot has that classic Henke Kelner signature of barnyard with dry hay and earth components. Once the Avo XO Intermezzo is cut, the cold draw serves up a floral note with some continued hay, grass and earth thrown into the mix. Once the cigar is cut there are notes of blueberry and floral notes which remind me of a spring day. As we progress into the cigar the blueberry note fades and notes of hay and cedar take control of this cigar which also sees the floral aspects wither away.
