Coming soon to Emerson’s Cigars, Avo 88!
From the Avo Press Release:
“The AVO Limited Edition 2014 celebrates the extraordinary 88th birthday of cigar legend, Avo Uvezian. Avo’s deep fascination with numerology gains full exposure with the number 8. Not only does 88 represent the hallmark anniversary Avo Uvezian is celebrating but also the number of keys on a grand piano. Thus, the piano keyboard is the “key” inspiration for Avo’s 2014 Limited Edition – “AVO 88”.
Avo Uvezian’s pursuit to compose the perfect blend for his 88th birthday cigar began several years ago. The goal was to compose a cigar that encapsulated an exciting and perfect balance of flavors and strength that is the foundation of every great musical composition. When Avo explained the objective to Master Blenders, Henke Kelner and Eladio Diaz, they were determined to successfully achieve Avo’s challenge. The ideal tobaccos were selected and the beautiful Belicoso format was chosen, years of passionately fine-tuning the blend followed. Finally, the dedication to perfection from this legendary trio of composers resulted in a Dominican Puro cigar that will be celebrated by connoisseurs throughout the ages.”
This delightful blend has been limited to 8,888 sixteen count boxes, and is presented in a piano keyboard inspired box. The Avo 88 is a Dominican Puro consisting of a Yamasa wrapper, Olor/Criollo binder, and a filler blend of Piloto Viso/Ligero, San Vicente Ligero, Corojo, Olor and Criollo. Look for the Avo 88 to land in all five Hampton Roads Emerson’s Cigars and online at emersonscigars.com around the beginning of April!
