AVO Cigars is revealing the details for the fifth installment of its AVO Limited Edition Improvisations Series–the AVO Improvisation LE17. The special cigar is based on the unexpected music and cigar inspirations that create rich and noteworthy experiences for all cigar enthusiasts to celebrate. The AVO Improvisation LE17 packaging is based on a retro guitar case and features a full black leather exterior with orange leather interior lid and dual silver clasps.
AVO Improvisation LE17 will be made at the Oettinger Kelner Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic. It will be a limited edition cigar, with only 32,000 cigars being made available in the U.S. The cigar will come in 16-count boxes and will have a suggested retail price of $18.
“When developing the fifth AVO Improvisation blend, I wanted to use the foundation of my fifth AVO Limited Edition ever released, the celebrated AVO LE05, to see if we could craft something extra special,” Avo Uvezian commented. “When we blended in filler tobacco from Estelí, my palate immediately began to dance with the many flavor notes. The combination worked so well together that a 60-ring gauge format was the proper way to fully showcase this wonderful arrangement, finished in a flawless box pressed shape.”
This cigar is the result of an improvised collaboration from a trio of previously released AVO cigars: AVO Syncro Nicaragua, AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata and the AVO LE05. The new blend uses the same variety of Dominican binder and filler tobaccos that were featured in the AVO LE05, blended with the same Estelí, Nicaragua filler tobacco used in the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata and presented in the same 6 x 60 box-pressed format of the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Special Toro.
