“A pocket-sized volcano, that erupts fire at the slightest shock (...) it is a heavy and strong pleasure, with no fuss”. The spirit of the TOSCANO® cigar identified in the words of legendary journalist Gianni Brera and perfectly exemplified in the Antico TOSCANO®, which more than any other represents the tradition of the Italian cigar since 1818.
BLEND TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The North American wrapper, selected among the best quality leaves, is cured for more than 30 days on hickory and oak wood, which have a strong essence. This ensures the right combination with the filler, bringing to it the characteristic pleasant smoky flavour typical of tobacco that is fire-cured over a long period.
The filler for this product is characterized by the combination of the best Italian tobacco from Tuscany and the Veneto and the North American, grown in specific areas of Kentucky and Tennessee.
Finally, the fermentation and ageing of more than ten months further enrich this historic blend.
It is, in fact, its exceptional strength, which is never inelegant or excessive, that characterizes the Antico TOSCANO® cigar and makes it unique.
Its extremely determined character leaves no room for hesitation. An intense cigar when smoked, with a positively bitter taste. Within the high aromatic intensity, the typical notes of aromatic wood and dried fruit are clearly perceptible, evolving in marked hints of smokiness and moving towards the spicy in the last puffs.
DID YOU KNOW...?
The strength of a cigar is not necessarily linked to the presence of nicotine, but to the ‘fullness of taste’as a consequence of the selected tobacco, which makes it satisfying but balanced.
