The AVO Movement has begun to arrive on Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) retailers. As we noted back in April, the AVO Movement is a cigar that has been made exclusively to the TAA. It also marks the first box-pressed cigar to be released by the AVO line.
As per their web-site, the TAA is defined as: “The Tobacconists’ Association of America, Ltd. is a trade organization established in 1968 by visionary retail tobacconists. By providing education, communication, research, advocacy, and member discount programs, The TAA works with our members and the industry they support to offer the tools and relationship building opportunities needed to maximize professionalism and success.”
The AVO Movement is one of several cigars that has been released to the TAA in 2013. This joins the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary Grand Chasseur, the La Flor Dominicana Double Press Maduro, the Alec Bradley Prensado Figuardo, and CyB Lancero Fino. The La Aurora 107 Maduro and Kristoff 685 Woodlawn were also initially offered to TAA retailers.
At a glance, here is a look at the Avo Movement:
The Avo Movement is a box-pressed vitola made in one size – a 6 x 52 toro. The cigars are packaged 20 per box and have an SRP of $11.00 per cigar.
