Let me quote a review from Halfwheel.com by Brooks Whittington that says it all, perfectly. "The first third of the AVO Improvisation LE19 starts off with a flavor blast of distinct buttered toast combined with creamy cedar and a touch of spice on my tongue. The dominant flavors are followed by notes of hay, leather, earth, bitter espresso beans and a mushroom note that is strong enough to pick out but not strong enough to negatively impact the profile, at least so far. In addition, there is a very nice Mexican chocolate sweetness that is present on the retrohale, where it combines quite well with some black pepper on the retrohale. The burn is excellent so far, but the draw is a bit looser than I would like and the smoke production flows off the foot like a house on fire. I was not expecting the AVO Improvisation LE19 to be a powerhouse from the start and was not wrong in that regard, but the overall strength is increasing noticeably as the first third comes to an end." Although I do agree with all of these statements, I would give this cigar a rating of 91 or 92 rather than his 85.
