Southern Draw

I just love this Manzanita! Goes great with a rye old-fashioned or a good ol’ Guinness. Looking forward to trying their new lancero soon. The Southern Draws are all good. What’s your favorite?

AVO XO

The AVO XO is on of my go-to Avo cigars. It's light and creamy but still has a little kick to it. It's great as a first of the morning cigar, but it's bold enough to be a winding down the evening kind of cigar.
