The AVO Cigar brand has long been known for its Tubo offerings, now the Tubo comes to the AVO Syncro Nicaragua. This week, AVO Cigars has begun informing retailers of its AVO Syncro Toro Turo – a 6 x 54 box-pressed vitola packaged in a tube.
The tube has a slight square shape in order to accommodate the box-press size of the Toro.
AVO Cigars will offer the Toro Tubos in 4-count packs and 20-count boxes. Pricing for the Tubo Toro is set at $11.95 SRP.

This is a very smooth smoke. Great earthy flavors with notes of peppery taste. However, I’d say this is way more on the stronger/Maduro side (compared to how it’s stated to be med-strong). If you are not used to smoking Maduro’s, this may not be for you. If Maduro is your preference, I’d def recommend it.
