Avo Cigars has announced a line extension to its core Avo Heritage line. This one is a 6 x 60 cigar dubbed the “Special Toro”. The initial launch of the cigar occurred at the 2012 IPCPR trade show.
The Avo Hertiage Special Toro is significant because this is the first Avo to have a vitola in the popular 6 x 60 format. The Avo Heritage was launched two years ago and it was intended to be a fuller core line offering in the Avo Cigars portfolio.
The cigar is intended to be a limited production line extension and will be made available to select Avo retailers.
2012 has proven to be a very busy year for the Avo Cigars brand within Davidoff. Earlier this year, the latest addition to the Avo Limited Edition Series – the Avo Limited Edition 2012 La Trompeta was released. Also at the IPCPR Trade Show, the announcement and launch of the Avo 25th occurred.
Here are the particulars on the Avo Hertiage Special Toro
