Review Notes: I was plesantly surprised by this slightly toothy smoke, which, after about a year and a half in the humi, was already beginning to plume. The Avo #2 was one of my first favorites (and I still pull one out from time to time when I want something light), but as I began to enjoy medium to full bodied smokes, I tried out one of the Domaines. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy that line (smoked the churchill size), and gave up on trying other Avo's for a long time. This Intermezzo came by way of a CBid sampler quite a while back. I would probably describe it as medium bodied, yet still possessing a bit of that classic Avo creaminess that so well defines the #2. That said, there's still not a lot of complexity with this smoke. Seemed kind of woody throughout, with a good amount of earth at the finish. Slightly soft to the touch--as are most Avos--it burned like a dream for the first half, and gave me tons of smoke througout. However, after that first half, it began to canoe, and even continual touch-ups didn't correct the problem entirely. The uneven burn wasn't too drastic, however, and didn't ruin the smoke by any means. This is a pretty good smoke if you want to try an Avo that brings a bit more umph than the brand's prototypical cigar.
