“Even though the final third was bitter and poor tasting, overall it was a good cigar. Not much in the way of flavors other than a nice woody taste and a wonderful campfire smell. The beginning had some nice spicy notes and a wonderful peppery tingle on the lips, but that did not last too long. In the end his would pair nicely with a good whiskey or even a string espresso.” -Eric (smalls29)
“I just couldn’t get passed the strong bitter taste I obtained through the first third. I was hoping it would transition away and something else would come alone. It really was a chore to smoke this cigar all the way through. If I had purchased this myself It would have been pitched.” -Zane G. (Zane)
“This cigar was fantastic and kept my interest throughout the entire experience. Exhale was delicious cream, sandalwood, and the perfect amount of spice and sweetness. Citrus and slightly bitter ripe cherry twang flirt in and out of the profile. The retrohale provided varying levels of black pepper, wet cedar, cream and bubblegum. I will be buying a ton of these cigars if readily available and putting them in my regular rotation.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
La Palina over the weekend announced that the limited-edition Bronze Label begins shipping to TAA retailers today. The cigar was blended through a collaborative effort with Rocky Patel and is only available to members of the Tobacconists’ Association of America, a retailer organization that represents American brick-and-mortar tobacconists.
UNCOVER A PRIMAL RHYTHYM OF COLOR AND COMPLEXITY
Introducing the new AVO Syncro South America Ritmo
PINELLAS PARK, FL – MAY 11, 2017 – Inspired by the worldly spirit and endless curiosity of cigar legend, Avo Uvezian, AVO Cigars first ventured beyond its Dominican roots in 2015; capturing exotic notes from vibrant cultures around the world to create an exciting collection of blends called Syncro. From savoring the spicy, sweet notes from Isla Ometepe with the AVO Syncro Nicaragua, to venturing off the beaten path deep into the rugged landscape of Nicaragua’s Esteli and Condega regions with the wildly exotic AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata. AVO now travels further south to uncover a primal rhythm of color and complexity, finding harmony with the unknown to create the new AVO Syncro South America Ritmo.
“I really enjoyed this cigar. Started off mild with some nice light notes and ramped up a bit as it progressed. This is a cigar I would not pass up when I want something that isn’t too over powering” -Zane G. (Zane)
