The all new Avo Syncro Fogata has arrived. Avo’s newest features an Ecuadorian Habano 2000 wrapper, with a Mexican San Andres binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. Today, we will be reviewing the Fogata Toro (6 x 54).
The cigar itself looks aesthetically pleasing. A rich Brown colored wrapper with minimal veins.
The cigar burns fairly evenly, leaving a nice white ash that hold up well. Draw is perfect, with just enough resistance. Not too tight, not too loose.
The Avo Fogata Toro starts off with notes of Nuts, Citrus, and Spice. It’s incredible how smooth the cigar is for that flavor profile, well balanced. As the Fogata progresses, more subtle notes of Cream, Wood, and Leather appear, adding an interesting complexity. The cigar feels Medium in body, but absolutely infringes on the Full bodied end of the spectrum. It will sneak up on you. The Aroma is also pleasing, Oak with a Floral note. You can definitely say this cigar is both Sweet and Spicy. At the midpoint, the Leather and Earth notes take centerstage while a Cream Sweetness is still present in the background, reminiscent of a Cuban cigar profile. In the final third, the Spice picks up considerably; Cedar, Pepper, and Wood. It is still smooth with a bit of a Warmer feel to the smoke. The Fogata finishes with hints of Toast and Almonds. Delicious the the very end.
This is an Exceptional release for Avo. The blend is Complex, Rich, and Smooth, absolutely in contention for Cigar of the Year. This Cigar is Nutty, Spicy, Creamy, Floral, Leathery, Peppery, and Sweet. With a complexity like this, it is a Must Try.
