There are a lot of “firsts” for the Avo Syncro Nicaragua brand. It’s the first regular-production Avo to be box pressed. It’s the first regular-production box-pressed cigar to ever come out of Davidoff of Geneva’s factory in the Dominican Republic. And, as is indicated in the name, it’s also the first Avo to use Nicaraguan tobacco. The name is also meant to suggest synchronization between the different tobaccos in the blend, which include Nicaraguan tobacco from Ometepe and Dominican tobacco types such as Piloto Cubano, San Vicente and a hybrid tobacco spawn from Piloto and Olor. The Toro’s blocky dimensions and smart blending allow each tobacco to express itself, showing notes of leather, minerals and a dried apricot sweetness.
With a lush draw and an even burn, this finely-made corona gorda offers notes of toasted peanut and nougat, with a touch of honey sweetness on the finish.
