AVO Regional North Edition

AVO Regional North Edition

AVO Regional North Edition 1600 900 Luca Cominelli

Last September, AVO released its limited regional editions: the North and the South. Both cigars are characterized by different sizes (the North is a Double Perfecto) and a different blend. In particular, the North is the only one of the two to be a Dominican Puro: the binder is a Hybrid Olor/Piloto Seco, while the filler includes San Vicente (Visus), San Vicente Mejorado (Ligero), Piloto Ligero, and Hybrid Olor / Piloto (Ligero).

Avo North

The cigar is dressed in a bright Colorado wrapper with yellow reflections. To the touch, it is slightly rough, with not very evident veins. Construction and filling are great.

  • Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
  • Size: 50 x 158 mm (6.6″)
  • Wrapper: Dominican Republic
  • Binder: Dominican Republic
  • Filler: Dominican Republic
  • Price: $14 – € 15
Avo North

AVO Regional North Edition: the cold draw reveals only aromas of seasoned wood. The opening reveals a mix of seasoned wood and spices, where white pepper stands out.

Avo North

Notes of cellulose and seasoned wood are released in the first third, together with a suave toasted nuance, which remains in the background. Strength is light (1.5/5).

In the central section, the flavor profile is enriched with citrus notes that refresh the smoke. The background remains toasted and the wood is also confirmed, along with hints of cellulose. Strength grows slightly, while still remaining  light (2/5).

The final third continues on the aromas of wood and citrus, to which hints of vanilla are added. Vegetal hints come through in some puffs. Strength grows again (2.5/5), while remaining below medium bodied.

Overall, a balanced smoke with a low intensity. The cigar tends more towards refinement and harmony, the latter, however, less pronounced than the former. Although the size may suggest a broad range of flavors, the aromas it develops are few and with little evolution. 

Rating: 85
