AVO goes flat and hits a high note.
AVO cigars are the brainchild of composer Avo Uvezian and the master blender of Davidoff cigars, Henke Kelner. Usually known for their mellow to medium-bodied Dominican flavor profile, AVO cigars have embarked on a new journey with the Avo Syncro, seeking to incorporate the diverse flavors from tobaccos sourced from Nicaragua, Peru, and the Dominican Republic.
AVO Syncro Nicaragua is AVO ’s first box-pressed cigar, and the first in its portfolio to use nutrient-rich tobacco from the revered black volcanic soils of Ometepe, Nicaragua. Coming dressed in a gorgeous, oily, dark, Ecuador Habano wrapper concealing a Dominican binder and Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Peruvian Olancho long-fillers, AVO Syncro Nicaragua makes its presence known immediately.
Medium to full-bodied, and with spot-on construction, expect a flavorful kick of spice and pepper before the cigar settles into notes of cream, leather, and cedar. Complex and boasting wonderful balance that AVO consistently delivers, Syncro will have you chomping at the bit for another go 'round.
AVO Syncro Nicaragua received Top 25 honors for 2015 and a welll-deserved 93-rating noting: "blocky dimensions and smart blending allow each tobacco to express itself, showing notes of leather, minerals and a dried apricot sweetness."
