Feature of the Week: Avo Limited Edition 2015 Classic Covers Announced

This past weekend we noted that retailers were informed of the upcoming Avo Limited Edition 2015 cigar being dubbed “Classic Covers”.  The brand is moving away from releasing a birthday cigar and has announced the LE 2015 will be the first in what is being called the Improvisation series.   This is a line of cigars drawing “inspirations” from past Avo releases.
