The wrapper is dark brown with a slight reddish hue and oily with a couple medium and small veins. The seam is visible and very smooth. The cap is fairly neat. The body is pretty hard and barely gives when gently squeezed. The band is simple with the traditional Avo logo, which looks nice.
The foot has the aroma of dry hay and chile spice. I clipped the head with my Palio cutter. The draw is has slight resistance and the flavor of hay spice and chile. I toasted the foot with my Blazer micro torch.
The flavor starts with chile spice and cedar. There are some nuts and dry wood with pepper spice in the background. The retrohale has oak and cedar with chile spice. The finish is cedar with pepper spice. The flavor is full. The body and strength is a solid medium. The draw has slight resistance. The burn is slightly uneven. The ash is dark gray and compact.
The flavor has charred oak and pepper spice. Towards the final third there was plenty of chile pepper.
Overall, this cigar is complex and balanced. The flavors are satisfying and the construction was nearly perfect. This is not a cheap smoke but it is one of the most affordable cigars carrying the Avo name. This is a great cigar for the new and experienced smoker.
