AVO pulled an April Fools on us all. In releasing its new Unexpected Series, the luxury cigar producer merely rebranded four of its mainline labels. The green band of the Unexpected Tradition Toro contrasted the deep brown wrapper on this beautiful toro. A taste of tobacco came through the cold draw. Distinctive notes of mushroom and allspice led the way in the first third. The next third invited coffee, blossoming into mocha and earth. Finally, butterscotch interplayed with cocoa to provide a tasty finish. The Tradition suffered an uneven burn and a canoe that needed a touch-up.
