New AVO Syncro Puritos Short Cigar Series

June 2017 (Basel, Switzerland) – To help aficionados who may be short on time to enjoy a long format cigar and inspired by the worldly lifestyle of cigar legend Avo Uvezian, AVO Cigars introduces two new Puritos blends under the globally acclaimed Syncro Series - AVO Syncro Nicaragua Puritos and AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata Puritos. The new handmade AVO Syncro Puritos offer the same taste and aroma experiences as the full-sized formats, which have received numerous top ratings in prestigious cigar magazines in the USA. Due to the convenience of a smaller format, AVO Puritos can be enjoyed in a short break.

“In a world where finding time to enjoy a cigar can be somewhat challenging, we are excited to expand the famed AVO Puritos line of shorter cigars with the winning Syncro Nicaragua Box Pressed and wildly exotic, artfully Composed Syncro Nicaragua Fogata blends. These new Puritos are ideal companions for those aficionados looking to enjoy an exceptional short cigar on a coffee break or during a moment of escape in a hectic day,” explained Charles Awad, Senior Vice President – Chief Marketing Officer at Oettinger Davidoff AG.

Packaged in vibrantly colorful 10-count tins, the 4” x 30 Puritos allow for AVO Cigar fans to now savor every note of their favorite Syncro blend in a much shorter amount of time.

A fruitful cooperation between cigar pianist and cigar composer began to develop which resulted in the launch of the AVO Classic Series, to almost immediate success. Two creative masters collaborated with one purpose: help aficionados to “SAVOR EVERY NOTE” in life through delightful cigars.
