“Avo Como Va” – Introducing AVO Syncro South America Ritmo Cigars

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A Completely New AVO Cigars Experience with a Primal Medley of Complex Flavors

By Gary Korb

With his passion for music, irresistible charm, and appetite for new experiences, Avo Uvezian, the late, world-renowned jazz musician and composer who passed away on March 24th, 2017 at the age of 91, had an infinite enthusiasm for life. And nothing could be more representative of his passion for fine cigars than his self-titled AVO cigars which arrived on the rapidly-growing premium cigar scene in the mid-1990s. With the help of master blender, Hendrik Kelner, whom he met in 1982, Avo also became a composer of fine cigars, creating “rare and beautiful moments to be savored and shared by all” – moments that will now continue with the newest release from the AVO label, the AVO Syncro South America Ritmo cigars range.

Shipping to retail cigar stores on May 22, 2017, AVO Syncro South America Ritmo cigars also continue the AVO Syncro range’s excursion into more complex blends, like the AVO Syncro Nicaragua that boasts sweet-spicy tobaccos from Isla Ometepe, and the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata with its even more exotic blend of Estelí and Condega tobaccos.

Spanish for “rhythm,” Ritmo presents a completely new AVO cigar experience for cigar passionados seeking the ultimate in complex flavor and aroma. Presented in all box-pressed shapes, the blend is a virtual jam session of primal rhythms composed of tobaccos from Nicaragua, Peru, Brazil, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Ecuador.

Avo Syncro Ritmo label

“This fusion of tobaccos spanning across seven different countries of origin results in the most intense flavor profile within the AVO portfolio,” said Charles Awad, Senior VP & Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG.

As for the cigar’s flavor profile, the Ritmo commences with a profound overture of roasted nuts and black pepper that awakens the palate as the earthy-spicy flavors from the South American filler tobaccos ensue and synchronize in perfect harmony with the sweet chili-like tang of the Mexican binder. During the final stanzas, chewy flavors of cocoa and black coffee emerge, underscored by a rich creaminess, all of which remain undiminished until the last flavorful note.

“The unmatched complexity of the AVO Syncro South America Ritmo will excite aficionados around the world,” added Mr. Awad.

The new AVO Syncro South America Ritmo is offered in four popular shapes in boxes of 20 cigars. The initial shipment will be distributed in the United States, with no plans to extend the distribution to the rest of the world at press time.
