There’s a new AVO Syncro Nicaragua. Yes, the line that Davidoff of Geneva USA last year, is already getting an extension.
The company has announced that it will launch AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata next month. While the original Syncro Nicaragua was noted as the first regular box-pressed cigar for the AVO brand, Fogata, which means campfire in Spanish, will be a round cigar.
“AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata delivers new frontiers in cigar experiences. Pulsing with the rhythm of Nicaragua’s more intense Esteli and Condega tobaccos and composed with the softer, creamier notes of our Dominican grown tobacco, aficionados will savor every note and be delighted by the fusion of wild complexity blended with unprecedented harmony,” said Charles Awad, svp of global innovation & marketing for Oettinger Davidoff AG.
The cigar uses an Ecuadorian habano 2000 clara wrapper over a Mexican San Andrés negro binder and filler tobaccos including Dominicana Yamasa viso, piloto and San Vicente ligero as well as ligero from Estelí, Nicaragua and visos from Condega, Nicaragua.
For comparisons sake, the original Syncro used an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper over a largely Dominican filler blend with only one variety of Nicaraguan tobacco.
It will be offered in four sizes: Short Torpedo (4 1/2 x 52, $8.90), Robusto (5 x 50, $9.90), Toro (6 x 54, $10.90) and Special Toro (6 x 60, $11.90). All sizes come in boxes of 20.
“Fogata, meaning Bonfire or Campfire in Spanish, was a great inspiration for this new cigar, it is one of my favorite settings to share unforgettable and intimate moments with my closest of friends,” said Avo Uvezian. “With Syncro Nicaragua Fogata, we went off the beaten path in search of more intense taste experiences and are proud to now share with you this vibrant new blend in our portfolio.”
The company says it will begin shipping the cigar on June 27 in the U.S. with an international launch planned for 2017.
