Default AVO Tesoro Limited Edition '08

I believe this is the first AVO cigar I've ever smoked. I've heard some people sing the praises of AVO and others say they're overrated. I decided to see for myself.

A nice looking cigar. Nice firm cap, easy cut, good draw.

First few draws...strong woodsy flavor, lots of smoke volume. A bit of a tangy flavor on the finish.

About 1" in...the woodsy flavor remains, but the flavor has dropped a notch.

About 2" in...much the same. A bit of a crooked burn. Pretty bland so far.

About halfway...this cigar tastes like warm air. It has lost almost all flavor. The aroma is nice, but that's it. Just a hint of a woodsy flavor on the finish. I pitched this airball just past the halfway point.

Final thoughts...wow. I won't be going out of my way to buy any more AVOs soon.
