For its third release under the AVO Syncro brand, AVO Cigars is now journeying to South America. Yesterday, the brand announced the new AVO Syncro South America Ritmo. It is AVO Cigars first new line to be released since the passing of brand ambassador Avo Uvezian.

The AVO Syncro South America Ritmo brings together tobaccos from seven countries, highlighted by three from South America. These countries include Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. The name Ritmo is Spanish for rhythm. Establishing a rhythm among these diverse tobaccos was a goal with the Syncro South America Ritmo.

“This fusion of tobaccos spanning across seven different countries of origin results in the most intense flavor profile within the AVO portfolio. The untamed rhythm and unmatched complexity of the AVO Syncro South America Ritmo will excite aficionados from around the globe with a new experience to savor every note,” commented Charles Awad, Senior Vice President – Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG in a press release.

The AVO Syncro South America Ritmo will be available in four box-pressed sizes. Ritmo becomes the second all box-pressed line by AVO Cigars joining the AVO Syncro Nicaragua – the first installment of the Syncro series. The cigars are packaged in 20-count boxes with pricing ranging from $10.90 to $13.90.
