AVO Regional South Edition

AVO Regional South Edition

AVO Regional South Edition 1600 900 Michel Arlia

The AVO Regional Series was first released last year with the East and West Editions. This year, they are being followed up by the North and South Edition. While both the cigars are much larger than last year, they are again packaged in 10-count cardboard boxes. A total of 8,350 boxes have been produced between both cigars.

The cigar is rolled in a Colorado hued wrapper that is smooth to the touch. There are some small veins present. The cigars itself are well constructed.

  • Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
  • Size: 50 x 178 mm (7″)
  • Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut
  • Binder: Ecuador Connecticut
  • Filler: Dom. Rep., Honduras, Peru
  • Price: $14 – € 15

AVO Regional South Edition: aromas of hay and cellulose can be perceived in the cold draw. Once lit, the cigar opens with notes of cellulose and wood.

The first third has a combination of walnut and wood as the main flavors that are backed by a sweet, creamy component. Strength is medium-light (2.5/5).

The creaminess becomes slightly more pronounced in the second third, while the walnut and wood flavors are still the main flavors. There is also a faint earthy note perceptible in the background. Strength remains unchanged.

The flavor profile doesn’t change much in the last third. A white pepper component comes through in the last couple of puffs. Strength becomes medium-bodied (3/5).

Overall, the AVO Regional South Edition is a smooth and creamy smoke, but that is basically it. While it is not the same cigar as the AVO Regional West, they have one thing in common: their limited flavor profile. This, paired with the cigar’s length, makes for a one-sided combination that tends to become a little boring.
