AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 125: 1.25-Mile Cigar
AVO, Ecuadorian Habano 2000 Clara, Fogata, Mexican Negro San Andrés, Robusto, Syncro Nicaragua I was surprised on this morning’s Cigar-Walk at how fast this AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata in Robusto burned… it ended up being only a 1.25-Mile cigar!

I was really looking forward to smoking the AVO Syncro Nicaragua Fogata since it had been since February 2019 when I smoke my first one and had a pleasant experience with it.

Maybe because I was outside smoking this that it burned so quickly… then again, maybe not. I have another one left, so I’ll keep it for another couple of months and see what happens next time.

My first Avo Fogata cigar was way back in March 2018. It was a gift from Cigar Sensei aka Mark Dikeos of Pacific Motorsports. I really enjoyed its Robusto size when I smoked it last August. At the time, I wasn’t confident with my cigar palate and I’m still continuing my journey to improve and learn, but I like it enough to pursue a 5-pack purchase although I bought the wrong size.

I have to admit I’m not usually partial to 60-gauge cigars as a matter of fact, I think I may have only had one or none before, so here we go.

This thing is huge. My jaw is going to get tired. From a perfect draw flows creamy smooth nutty smoke with malty caramel notes with a sharp pepper spice on the retrohale. Of course, it must be from the Mexican San Andrés binder and the Ligero filler check out all the Dominican tobaccos that contribute to this cigar. So far a very enjoyable and pleasant smoking experience.

I just realized that I’m already at the last third of this Avo Fogata. For a 6 inch, 60-gauge cigar this is a relatively fast smoking cigar. Already at the final third of this creamy smooth smoke with leather come onto the finish and still producing the sharp spice on the retrohale.

Yes, I’m diggin’ this Avo Fogata cigar. Next time I’m seeking smaller gauges of this; Robusto for sure, maybe I’ll try even smoothing smaller in ring size.
