Ever since they were introduced, the AVO Syncro series of cigars have been huge hits. That streak is about to be extended with the addition of AVO Syncro South America Ritmo.
So what makes this entry different? Well, while the original and the Fogata concentrated on using Nicaraguan tobacco, AVO Syncro South America Ritmo uses a seven-country blend. Yes, you read that right, seven-country. You'll find leaf from Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Brazil, and Mexico, plus a gorgeous nut-brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The flavor profile is decidedly complex, with notes of light roast coffee, toasty nuts, oak, a hint of cocoa, and smooth spices. Of course, as you would expect, the construction on these box-pressed gems is nigh on flawless. If you're looking for a medium to full-bodied cigar that will keep your attention all the way to the nub, this is the one!
