PINELLAS PARK, FL – MAY 11, 2017 – Inspired by the worldly spirit and endless curiosity of cigar legend, Avo Uvezian, AVO Cigars first ventured beyond its Dominican roots in 2015; capturing exotic notes from vibrant cultures around the world to create an exciting collection of blends called Syncro. From savoring the spicy, sweet notes from Isla Ometepe with the AVO Syncro Nicaragua, to venturing off the beaten path deep into the rugged landscape of Nicaragua’s Esteli and Condega regions with the wildly exotic AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata. AVO now travels further south to uncover a primal rhythm of color and complexity, finding harmony with the unknown to create the new AVO Syncro South America Ritmo.

Ritmo, Spanish for rhythm, offers a completely new AVO experience rich with mystery and possibility. A medley of complex notes, AVO Syncro South America Ritmo is a rare composition of tobaccos from Peru, Brazil and Ecuador – elegantly arranged with Central American tobaccos from Nicaragua and Mexico. Raw in nature and polished in experience, AVO Syncro South America Ritmo is a blend a thousand years in the making.

This fusion of tobaccos spanning across seven different countries of origin results in the most intense flavor profile within the AVO portfolio. The untamed rhythm and unmatched complexity of the AVO Syncro South America Ritmo will excite aficionados from around the globe with a new experience to savor every note.Charles Awad, Senior Vice President – Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG.

THE “RITMO” EXPERIENCE:



Opening with untamed intensity, AVO Syncro South America Ritmo presents deep flavors of roasted nuts and black pepper. The complexity of exotic filler tobaccos awakens the palate and prepares aficionados for a journey unmatched. Midway through, the South American spiciness and earthy flavors provided by the filler tobaccos sync perfectly with the sweet chili notes from the Mexican binder. Unique cocoa and black coffee flavors remain prominent towards the end, as a rich creaminess emerges, perfectly fusing where primal tobaccos grow wild with the sophisticated style of AVO.
