Introducing the new AVO 90th Classic Covers Volume 3:
An exceptional new blend in celebration of an exceptional milestone, Avo Uvezian’s 90th Birthday
PINELLAS PARK, FL – MARCH 7, 2016. AVO Cigars, the globally renowned cigar brand, is proud to announce the third limited edition release under its Improvisation Series, the new AVO 90th Classic Covers Volume 3. A true embodiment of the jazz-loving musician and cigar impresario Avo Uvezian, the 90th Classic Covers invites aficionados around the world to celebrate 90 years with Avo – a theme that will play on throughout both limited edition releases in 2016.
AVO XO, a blend that stands as a true mark of quality, has been “covered” with tobaccos from Ecuador and Mexico. Presented in an elegant 6 x 54 Toro format, the 90th Classic Covers blend utilizes 6 different tobaccos spanning across 3 different countries, all working in harmony to deliver a remarkably unique and richly complex flavor profile. The filler is composed from rare Dominican tobaccos aged for 10 and 11 years, cradled by the Mexican Negro San Andres binder leaf and elegantly finished with a Habano 2000 Claro wrapper from Ecuador.
The unique packaging resembles Avo’s personal vinyl record player, concealing two rows of 9 limited edition cigars, which are covered with a detachable vinyl record lid. Once the cigars have been removed, the box remains as a functional ashtray for each collector to use and display – a personal gift from Avo.
“For 90 years now, I have enjoyed life to the fullest, everything it has to offer. Still, my favorite times are sharing conversation and special cigars with my fans,” states Avo Uvezian. “Life is only as good as the people you share it with. I always say, it’s not about the legacy you leave. It’s about the one you share.”
The AVO 90th Classic Covers Volume 3 will have a total production of only 3,500 boxes, which begins shipping to US retailers on March 22, 2016, followed by Europe shortly thereafter.
