AVO Heritage

Those who enjoy cigars within the full-bodied range of strength will be pleased to know that AVO has a new release on the market to cater to their needs. The new line is goes by the Heritage moniker, and it was created by brand founder Avo Uvezian to offer smokers strength and complexity within the smoking experience.

The Heritage resembles the strength of the previously released 2009 Limited Edition Avo Companero, and it is also being regarded as AVO's most full-bodied offering to date. Its filler is a rather diverse blend of Dominican and Peruvian Seco tobaccos mixed with three different varieties of Dominican Ligero. A Dominican San Vicente Binder and an Ecuadorian Cuban-seed wrapper complete the Heritage.

The Heritage line is now available for sale and it comes in four different sizes: the 4 x 56 Short Robusto, the 4 7/8 x 50 Robusto, the 6 x 50 Toro, and the 6 ¾ x 48 Churchill. Expect to pay somewhere in the range of $7 to $9.50 for each of these full-bodied sticks.

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor

Ashton's La Aroma de Cuba brand has a new line: the Mi Amor. Mi Amor (My Love in English) is the third line from La Aroma de Cuba, which was re-launched by Ashton in 2002. Don Pepin Garcia is the man responsible for the production of the Mi Amor, which takes place in Esteli, Nicaragua at his My Father Cigars factory.

The Mi Amor was not a creation that happened over night. In fact, it's the final result of a collaborative two-year effort. Its filler and binder are both Nicaraguan. The wrapper, on the other hand, is made from Mexican Cuban-seed tobacco. The use of the Mexican wrapper is a departure from the usual Ashton practice of using Connecticut wrappers on its Maduro cigars. The wrapper is not the only thing that makes the Mi Amor unique in its construction, however. Most of the sizes offered in the Mi Amor line are box-pressed, which marks another first for Ashton in terms of its Nicaraguan smokes.

The Mi Amor is currently available in five different sizes: the 5 x 50 Robusto, the 5 ½ x 54 Belicoso, the 5 ¾ x 58 Valentino (not box-pressed), the 6 x 52 Magnifico, and the 7 x 50 Churchill. Depending on the size, prices range from $6.75 to $8.
