5 x 50 - Ecuador Connecticut - Single
Syncro, 14th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
The cold draw of the Avo Syncro Nicaragua reminds me of the gum included in Fleer Trading cards which was Double Bubble. The note is identical of when you first place the gum in your mouth and the powder coating dissolves. I was actually sitting here wishing I had a pack of Fleer baseball cards to open. The foot of the cigar is similar with an element of earth.
The first third of the cigar has some of the sweetness from the cold draw with an abundance of earth, cashews and a hint of chocolate. There is a subtle aroma that is familiar but I can’t quite put my fingers on it. The spice that one associates with Nicaragua isn’t present on the Syncro even on the clean retrohale.
The second third of the Avo Syncro continues to serve up notes of earth with cashews. The aroma that I couldn’t place in the first third of the cigar reminds me of a graham cracker as the cigar sits in my ashtray as the smoke wafts upward from my desk. The
The last third of the Avo Syncro continues to be earthy though less so than the first two-thirds of the cigar. The chocolate note experienced in the first third makes it way back into the mix with some pepper through the nose. The cigar has a short finish and the aroma is outstanding.
