As a cigar smoker, I'm always on the lookout for a promising new cigar, and AVO is a solid brand with a good reputation.
(PRWEB) February 16, 2013
The new line of premium cigars, known as the Domaine #20, has already obtained positive reviews in the cigar and tobacco press, and TrueTobacco expects it to be a quick seller among aficionados and casual smokers alike.
The Domaine series was originally developed as a stronger alternative to AVO's Classic cigars. The #20 is a product of the Dominican Republic, and features a wrapper of double-fermented, Ecuadorian tobacco, with fine Dominican leaf as filler and binder. In the perfecto shape, with a ring-gauge of 50 and a length of four and five-eights inches, the #20 is a classic medium-sized cigar, which should provide a smoke of around 60 minutes. Nick Gordon, General Manager at TrueTobacco, rates the #20 as "full-strength." It is a natural-flavor cigar, without any additives or flavorings, and Mr. Gordon described its profile as medium-bodied with a hint of pepper. He noted that the Domaine series in general are popular because of the specially-fermented wrapper, which imparts its particular taste and aroma.
The Domaine series cigars are a recent entry by the renowned AVO brand, known for its extensive selection of premium cigars. Armenian-American musician and composer Avo Uvezian created the brand to produce cigars more to his taste than those that were typically available. To develop his cigars he worked closely with the famous tobacco company Davidoff, which acquired the brand from Uvezian in 1995. Davidoff, a Swiss firm founded by tobacconist Zino Davidoff and with a history stretching back to the 1930s, is now the sole producer of AVO cigars. The brand remains popular among smokers, and several million AVOs are sold each year, the Domaine #20 among them. The term "Domaine" refers to a tobacco-growing estate in the Dominican Republic owned by Mr. Uvezian.

Mr. Gordon said that he hopes customers will branch out from their routine and give this new line of AVO cigars a try. "As a cigar smoker, I'm always on the lookout for a promising new cigar, and AVO is a solid brand with a good reputation," he said. "I'm excited about this new line, and I hope our customers will take the #20 out for a spin."
