Avo Syncro Expands with South America Ritmo

Avo Syncro Expands with South America Ritmo

It's the third release within the Avo Syncro series, and the first to contain tobacco from so many different countries.

While the first two Avo Syncro cigars showcased a range of tobaccos from various Nicaraguan growing regions, Avo Syncro South America Ritmo highlights tobaccos from seven different countries, with a special emphasis on Brazilian leaf in the filler.

The cigars should be available by the end of the month.

"This fusion of tobaccos spanning across seven different countries of origin results in the most intense flavor profile within the Avo portfolio," Charles Awad, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG, said in a statement.

Covered in an Ecuadoran wrapper leaf, South American Ritmo also contains a Mexican binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, Peru, Brazil, Honduras and the Dominican Republic.

The cigar will launch in four box-pressed sizes: Robusto, at 5 inches by 50 ring ($10.90); Toro, at 6 by 54 ($11.90); Special Toro, 6 by 60 ($12.90) and Torpedo Largo, at 7 by 54 ($13.90). South America Ritmo comes packaged in 20-count boxes and is rolled at Davidoff's Oettinger Kelner (OK) Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic.

Avo Syncro South America Ritmo, like all Avo cigars, is named after legendary jazz composer Avo Uvesian, who passed away in March.
