For the first time in four years, AVO Cigars will introduce a new blend in the brand’s contemporary Syncro series, as they announced the AVO Syncro Caribe today in a press release.
AVO Syncro Caribe follows the AVO Syncro Nicaragua (2015), AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata (2016), and AVO Syncro South America Ritmo (2017), now focusing on the “flavors, rhythm, and lifestyle” of the Caribbean—of which Caribe is the Spanish translation.
Since the beginning, this series has been themed around the synchronization of tobaccos from multinational regions, often focusing on regions not commonly used in AVO’s traditionally Dominican comfort zone. To showcase the Caribbean vibe, AVO Syncro Caribe incorporates tobaccos of the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.
AVO has also touted a blending process dubbed Natural Distribution:
This dynamic cigar was blended to showcase a process we are calling ‘Natural Distribution’ in which the proportions of the tobaccos on any given plant is perfectly matched in the blending process. Specifically, the ratios of tobaccos from each priming are matched in the blend in all vitolas.
The cigars will ship in mid-August, available in three formats: Robusto (5″ x 50), Toro (6″ x 52), and Special Toro (6″ x 60). The cigars are packaged in boxes of 20 cigars, priced from $10.90 to $12.90 MSRP per cigar.
