CLINT EASTWOODS PREFERRED SMOKE!
The actual brand enjoyed by Clint Eastwood in his countless movies.
Unlike many large European Cigar manufacturers, Toscano do not import all their tobacco leaves. The majority of the tobacco you will find in a Toscano Antico is grown on Italian plantations giving them their own unique flavour and aroma not found in any other cigar. Being different the Italians experimented with Dark Kentucky Italian tobacco as a cigar filler wrapped in an American Kentucky leaf and the Toscano was born!
As the popular saying goes, “a toscano never cheats” which is appropriate for Toscano cigars as they are rolled according to its natural shape. Every Toscano cigar does not undergo molding procedure unlike the common cigars from the Caribbean where they are pressed using a cigar molder in order to achieve the desired shape. After rolling, the cigar is flame cured over fires fueled by precious oakwood which serves to give the Toscano Antico its distinct taste and appearance. They are then put through a minimum 12 month maturing process to enhance the flavour further.
All in all you will get a rustic, naturally shaped, full bodied cigar that draws evenly punching out a unique complex flavour. All though Toscano aren’t a harsh cigar we would not recommend them for the total novice as they may prove a little over powering. However do not be put off most smokers with any experience of cigars will enjoy a Toscano Antico.
Toscano Toscanello Rosso
Toscano Toscanello Rosso is made with Kentucky tobacco flavoured with coffee which gives the cigar an extremely distinct character with a very pleasant room note. The wrapping is made up of North American Kentucky leaves, while Italian Kentucky and cuttings from the wrapper are used for the filling, the tobacco used in these cigars is also matured and seasoned for at least 12 months.
