Cigar Review: Avo L.E. 07

Avo L.E. 07 (Dominican Republic)
by Gary Korb

The highly-anticipated Avo L.E. 07 cigars have arrived in a limited edition production of only 4,000 boxes. The cigars, which are only available in local cigar stores, are presented cabinet style (no cello) in a wooden box of 20 cigars without bands.

The L.E. 07 sample I had looked freshly rolled, smelled sweet, and had a nice silky feel. The wrapper, an Ecuadorian Sun Grown leaf, was somewhat veiny, even in hue, and buttery in appearance.

The cigar had an excellent draw that produced a thick, creamy head of smoke. The flavor was was toasty with a semi-sweet, cedar-aged flavor and aroma on a clean finish. As the cigar smoked, the flavors became much more pronounced, yet remained very smooth and creamy.

Final analysis: A rock-solid, medium to full-bodied cigar, perfect for enjoying in the evening.
