After lighting the 787 Toro the burn is a tad uneven at times.  The draw is good but the ash has a tendency to be somewhat weak.  The flavors present in the 787 are quite stimulating.  The first ones detected are more nutty in nature, with some splashes of coffee and cocoa mixed in.  Smoking the stogie further reveals some earthiness and spice, which eventually gets to a sweeter taste that resembles fruit.

The AVO 787 Toro can definitely please you with its variety of flavors, although its burn is less impressive.  If you can get past that, though, you have a good cigar on your hands.  You can pick up singles of the 787 Toro for around $14, which is definitely pricey for some.  Then again, this edition was made with aficionados in mind, but one has to wonder if its hype meets reality.  It’s worth a shot for a special occasion if you are a fan of the AVO brand or medium-bodied cigars.  If you are a bit weary of shelling out $14 for a cigar that may not live up to your expectations though, you may want to pass.  The AVO 787 Toro earns a rating of three out of four stars. 

AVO Tesoro Limited Edition 2008

The AVO Tesoro Limited Edition 2008 is a cigar that was released to honor the company’s founder, Avo Uvezian.  The release of the cigar commemorated Uvezian’s 82nd birthday, and what better way to celebrate an aficionado’s birthday than to create a cigar for him?  The Tesoro Limited Edition 2008 is a medium-bodied cigar that is handmade with extra care.  The manufacturing process is not the only place where care is exhibited though, as the boxes of 20 in which this cigar comes keep it in an upright position, unlike most other boxes where cigars are packaged laying down. 

The AVO Tesoro Limited Edition 2008 comes in one size only, a 5.75x50 robusto.  Its filler comes from the Dominican Republic in the form of a mix of Piloto Cubano and San Vicente tobaccos.  Its binder is also Dominican, and it has a rare Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper.
