The AVO brand of cigars has gone small for its two newest releases, the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Puritos and AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata Puritos.

Both cigars measure 4 x 30 and come packed in 10-count tins priced at $25 each.

As with their larger sized counterparts, the AVO Syncro Nicaragua features an Ecuadorian wrapper, Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua, Peru, and the Dominican Republic, while the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata uses an Ecuadorian wrapper, Mexican binder and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.

“In a world where finding time to enjoy a cigar can be somewhat challenging, we are excited to expand the
famed AVO Puritos line of shorter cigars with the winning Syncro Nicaragua Box Pressed and wildly exotic,
artfully composed Syncro Nicaragua Fogata blends,” said Charles Awad, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Oettinger Davidoff AG in a press release.

He added that the Puritos size are “ideal companions for those aficionados looking to enjoy an exceptional short cigar on a coffee break or during a moment of escape in a hectic day.”

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
