Blind Cigar Review: AVO | Syncro South America Ritmo Toro

“In terms of flavor, this would likely be a good introductory cigar for a novice. The flavor profile is light, accessible and pleasant. Creamy, floral and mild mannered with a bit of a kick toward the end. Anyone with an interest in experiencing cigars would likely be impressed. The construction problems would be a drawback for a newcomer however.” -John I. (John I.)

Cigar News: Davidoff Announces Culebras and 60 Ring Gauge

Basel, April 2017. Davidoff Cigars’ mission is to broaden the cigar horizons of the world’s aficionados and help them explore and experience the wider world of cigars. Zino Davidoff, a pioneer, a visionary and a guiding spirit, started his life work at an early age. In only five years he travelled across South and Central America: Argentina, Brazil and of course Cuba in search of exciting new flavours. During this life experience he learned everything about tobacco, studying not only how it was cultivated, dried and fermented but more importantly about how best to blend tobaccos into delightful cigars. Following Zino’s footprints, Davidoff Master Blenders are on the same mission: to craft blends that will help aficionados to discover the wider world of tobaccos and experience cigars with exciting and surprising tastes.
