Toscano Cigars18 Total ( 1 Fresh )
Toscano's history dates back to the early 1800s in Florence, Italy where — so the story goes — a cart full of Kentucky tobacco was caught in a sudden, torrential downpour, completely soaking the entire bundle. As the tobacco dried in the summer sun, the leaves began to ferment, and instead of being thrown away, were rolled into cigars and sold in Florence. They gained such popularity that in 1818, Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany, founded a tobacco factory to produce the cigars, establishing the Toscano brand.Today, Toscano cigars are still manufactured in Italy from fermented American and Italian dark-fired Kentucky tobaccos. Unlike Caribbean cigars, these sticks are considered dry cigars or "cheroots" and, because of their strength and long size, are traditionally smoked ammezzato — cut in half rather than enjoyed in their entirety, effectively providing two smokes per one cigar. Toscano even offers pre-cut sticks in their Toscanello lines. Though best stored in air-tight containers at around 68℉ (20℃) and 65% humidity, Toscano cigars still retain their quality for a day or two in a leather cigar holder, making them ideal for travel, and their attractive price point is perfect for everyday enjoyment.
Pairing deliciously with a strong coffee or espresso and bold enough to accompany a dram of Scotch or Bourbon, Toscano cigars are enjoyed by those who love full-bodied smokes. Experience for yourself the variety and distinct characteristics that make Toscano unlike any other cigar.
