The wrapper is fairly smooth to the touch, having a slight fuzziness from a light amount of tooth on the leaf. The wrapper has a subtle brindle effect with almost no visible veins and a nice oily sheen. The last third sees notes of white pepper kick it up on both the aroma and retrohale. The finish is long and dry which caused me to reach for a club soda before we head to the finish of this box pressed stick. Medium to full-bodied, these Avo Limited Editions are extremely hard to find and adored by cigar lovers, all over the world. The body is also medium but toward the end goes to medium to full.
And then there are those unique smoking experiences that prove otherwise, reminding that there is much more left to be discovered. On the other hand, I got a more unique sweet earth this time around.

According to Davidoff, Avo Uvezian broke conventions as the first cigar manufacturer to produce an annual Limited Edition.
Notes Upon inspecting the Campañero, I found a crack near the head. Once we light up the cigar there is an initial note of earth that is quickly joined by components of wheat and hay. There are an assortment of aromatic cabinet spices, followed by white pepper and a spice that almost borders on horseradish territory with an associated afterburn. If you like classic Avo or classic Davidoff profile, this is going to be a cigar you will enjoy. But with additional samples, I began to understand the profile as described in this review. There are also notes of natural tobacco, pepper, grass, and cream.
The first signs of familiarity in this blend come from notes of light-roast coffee beans and sourdough. Hub may be broken, case locks may be broken. The Robusto Extra—which feels like a cross between toro and robusto—seems to be bunched around medium-firm, giving an overall solid feel. .

Through the nose there more notes of oak and a touch of leather. The salty aspect is amplified by the open tobaccos against the tongue, which is similar to licking a charred and salted steak. The last few puffs of this cigr had a nice spicy kick. A total of 300 5-count trays are being produced for a total of 30,000 cigars.

Avo expressed this vision of his with his master blenders, Henke Kelner and Eladio Diaz. At the time, Master Blenders Eladio Diaz and Henke Kelner could not re-create the blend up to the same standards as the original 2005 release, so it was left out. It returns with the same components, featuring an Ecuadorian wrapper over Dominican binder and filler. The series was launched in 2001 and has followed each year with a different limited production release is done in a different size and a different blend.

What I can tell you is that this cigar is the greatest Avo I have ever smoked. It has a wonderful toasty aroma — as good as one I have gotten on any cigar. The wrapper itself was velvety feeling with little in the way of oils. This profile is somewhat jarring, having such an unusual beginning that it almost requires multiple smoking sessions to fully appreciate.
The foot had a huge amount of that musty funky aroma that Davidoff and Avo fans come to love. Most of these flavors are subtle and refined, with full retrohales on every puff being required to fully appreciate the depth of the profile. In 2018 the cigar made a return. The aroma off the foot serves up similar notes of cedar, wheat, and hay. With the Avo 77, this falls into the latter category. The flavors had some depth as I assessed the Tesoro to be a medium to full-bodied smoke. On the nose, the wrapper shows aromas of musk, tang, and brown sugar; this is joined by sweet cedar, brown sugar, and chestnuts on the foot.
