Big news today from AVO, with the company announcing the conclusion of their much beloved Improvisation Series which debuted in 2015 with Classic Covers.
Pinellas Park, FL – Febuary 8, 2022 – AVO Cigars, the global premium cigar brand, is proud to announce the newest addition to the Improvisation series, The Final Improvisation. This is the 10th and final release in the Improvisation line to commemorate this special and iconic milestone.
The AVO brand over the past decade has released the AVO Improvisation to honour the birthday of the brand’s late founder, Avo Uvezian. A composer who had a passionate zest for life. A life that was filled with music and seizing opportunities whenever possible to create rich, noteworthy experiences for all to celebrate. This year the limited edition will arrive in March in time for Avo’s birthday which is celebrated on March 22.
Two blends are used for this year’s release and are inspired by the layout of white and black keys on a piano to capture the essence of AVO as a brand and the musical affinity of its founder.
“The AVO Improvisation 2022 packaging memorializes both the luxury and musical inspiration of the AVO Lines. The box utilizes black and gold color themes to reflect the two most commonly observed colors in a symphony. Additionally we see the contrasting nature of these two blends reflected to the surface with this box design,” says Edward Simon, Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff. The ‘Closing Improvisation’ showcases two distinct yet complimentary blends to pair with various occasions, times of the day, and flavor and intensity preferences of the aficionado.”
The Improvisation 2022 White is created with binder and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and dressed with a silky, golden Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. The Improvisation 2022 Black also uses an Ecuadorian Wrapper, but contains a binder from Mexico and filler tobaccos from both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
ABOUT AVO CIGARS AVO Cigars started when the brand’s founder, Avo Uvezian, a legendary jazz and cigar composer of global fame orchastrated his passion for each into the soul of this brand. It’s the ability to elevate the moment, to connect with the energy and to “CHANGE THE TEMPO” that defines AVO Cigars. Those very same qualities are reflected in the heart and soul of those of undeniable character who align with and carry on the rhythm of this iconic brand of fine cigars.

1/27/2022, LAS VEGAS——In 2020, Emmanuel Peña, an audacious beverage industry titan and Claudio Sanchez, a thriving viral marketing and e-commerce mogul joined forces to create East Park Cigars. Inspired by their common roots and passions, they travelled off beaten paths in search of the right blend to pair with their favorite spirits. Little did they know that the journey would take them back to their ancestral home, Santiago, Dominican Republic. It was there they would discover Cibao valley’s rich soil, which infused by the waters of the Yaque river and blessed with almost perfect microclimate conditions, yields some of the best tobacco in the world.
Today, East Park Cigars debuts three inaugural blends: El Borbón, El Escocés, and El Cognac. Blended by Henderson Ventura and produced at Tabacalera William Ventura in Tamboril, Dominican Republic, these blends represent a dynamic yet thoughtful approach that yields cigars perfectly conditioned for pairing with bourbon, scotch, and cognac.
“To develop these three inaugural concepts,” Sanchez, CEO and Co-Founder explains, “the team developed each blend by experimenting with the phenolic compounds in the tobacco leaves. Each component of the cigar is meticulously architected to enhance the smoking experience while pairing with your favourite spirit. We can’t wait to bring these new experiences to this dynamic industry.”
Each blend is available in a single 5 ½” x 52 robusto size, packaged in 10 count boxes with an MSRP of $15 per cigar.
Emmanuel Peña, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer said of the project, “with the masterful skills of Henderson Ventura, the proven commitment to quality of Tabacalera William Ventura, and the combined experience of our team and guidance of Adrian Acosta of The Cigar Culture, we’re confident that we will deliver fresh and disruptive concepts that enhance the cigar smoking experience for the new generation of smokers.”

(Ramsey, NJ August 25, 2021) Ferio Tego is pleased to announce the official launch of the Ferio Tego brand of premium cigars with a pair of 2021 limited releases. Both blends are offered in a 6” x 50 toro format, packed in custom travel humidors of ten cigars each. The humidors, hand made by Humidif Group’s Cigar Box Factory in Esteli, come preloaded with the company’s Gelly Humidity Control packs to ensure the cigars are properly maintained after they are acquired.
The 2021 Ferio Tego Elegancia is manufactured in Licey, Dominican Republic with the Quesada family. The blend features an Ecuadorian wrapper, over a Dominican binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic.
The 2021 Ferio Tego Generoso is manufactured in Esteli, Nicaragua with the Plasencia family. The blend features a Honduran shade-grown wrapper, over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers.
“Our 2021 Ferio Tego offerings are quite different from one another in style and pedigree, yet both share a commonality of balance and body”, shared Michael Herklots, co-owner of Ferio Tego LLC. “A mild cigar need not be thin on the palate nor flavor deficient, and a bolder cigar does not need to be ferocious and aggressive. We worked very hard together with the factories to achieve a full-bodied mouth feel and presence across both blends in order to establish a ‘house style’ so to speak, while still preserving the elegant expression of creamier brighter notes of Elegancia, and the generous presentation of dense savory notes of Generoso. Both blends stand on their own much the way a winery offers a Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon together.”
The initial offer for 2021 Ferio Tego is currently being sent to retailers. The cigars are expected to arrive in stores the first week of October. Due to the extremely limited production of the 2021 inaugural release, inventory will be allocated. The 2022 release is in pre-production and will have much greater availability, though still limited in production. Exact quantities will not be announced. Ferio Tego 2021 will be offered at an MSRP of $210 per humidor of ten cigars.
“We have worked very methodically these last several months, carefully considering every decision, ensuring that we are on solid ground before taking another step”, said Brendon Scott, co-owner of Ferio Tego LLC. “We are excited to finally launch Ferio Tego in the U.S. and bring these wonderful new offerings to market. And we are equally excited for the relaunch of Timeless and Metropolitan in the coming months.”
Ferio Tego is distributed exclusively by Davidoff of Geneva USA in the United States and its territories.
