AVO Heritage

Friday, March 11th, 2011

I picked up a few AVO Heritage cigars from St. Pete Cigar not too long ago. I usually shy away from Davidoff products due to their higher price. When I saw that this one was only $7.00 I couldn’t resist picking them up to review. There was quite a bit of hype when these were released, so here is my take on the AVO Heritage. As always, I paired this cigar with water.


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sungrown

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Size: Robusto 4.9 x 50

Price: Around $7.00


Pre-smoke & Construction:

The wrapper had some good sized veins but didn’t have any major flaws to speak of. The odor off of the wrapper and foot was a grassy earthiness. The cigar had some hard and soft spots, but it wasn’t drastic enough to be of concern. The pre-light draw was perfect with a slight amount of resistance. The pre-light flavor reminded of me rich soil.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for a little over an inch.



The first third had a somewhat creamy smoke feel that left a tingly aftertaste. Through the nose, I picked up a slight pepper. The main flavor was a dark soily earthiness along with woodiness. As I hit the end of this third, a chocolaty sweetness entered the picture.


The second third became a bit more creamy. The earthiness wasn’t the dominant flavor anymore, but it was still there from time to time. Woodiness mixed with a sweet chocolate were in the forefront. Through the nose, there wasn’t much pepper at all. It was mainly a smooth woody flavor.


The last third mainly increased in body and strength, but still stayed in the medium to upper medium range. Otherwise, there wasn’t a lot of flavor changes, and no new flavors were introduced. It basically kept pace with the second third.



This was a good medium bodied cigar. While this is no budget cigar, I think it meets the price point. There wasn’t any WOW factor, but again, it was a good cigar. If you are an AVO fan I think this is worth trying.
