PINELLAS PARK, FL – MAY 11, 2016 – Inspired by the worldly lifestyle of cigar legend Avo Uvezian, AVO Cigars turns up the tempo with a second release under the highly-rated Syncro Series – the new Syncro Nicaragua Fogata.
Having savored the spicy, sweet notes from Isla Ometepe, the AVO Syncro Series now ventures deeper into the rugged landscape of Nicaragua – collecting and composing wilder, richer, more intense flavors. Venturing north into the dark, mountainous soils of Nicaragua’s Esteli and Condega regions, our master blender has captured the strength and spice from this rugged, yet fertile terrain.
“AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata delivers new frontiers in cigar experiences. Pulsing with the rhythm of Nicaragua’s more intense Esteli and Condega tobaccos and composed with the softer, creamier notes of our Dominican grown tobacco, aficionados will savor every note and be delighted by the fusion of wild complexity blended with unprecedented harmony.” said Charles Awad, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing and Innovation.
“Fogata, meaning Bonfire or Campfire in Spanish, was a great inspiration for this new cigar, it is one of my favorite settings to share unforgettable and intimate moments with my closest of friends. With Syncro Nicaragua Fogata, we went off the beaten path in search of more intense taste experiences and are proud to now share with you this vibrant new blend in our portfolio,” explains Avo Uvezian.
THE FOGATA EXPERIENCE:
Composed with faraway notes from Ecuador, Mexico and the Dominican Republic and paired with the spicy sweetness of Nicaraguan tobacco, AVO Syncro Fogata is an intense yet perfectly smooth and balanced cigar. As soon as the flame touches the cigar, one is greeted with a wildly exotic flavor profile, revealing its artful composition from the very beginning. The blend plays with the palate in terms of strength and aromas influenced by the Visus and Ligero filler leaves from Nicaragua and Dominican Republic. The remarkable flavors of coffee, salt, cedar wood, citrus and sweetness are alluring and compliment the overall intensity.
This is your calling to go deep into the untamed heart of one of the world’s most celebrated tobacco regions. An opportunity to unearth the vibrant spirit that lurks within. To synchronize your wilder side with the harmony of AVO. Enticing you to once again, Savor Every Note.
