Toscano Cigars

A little bit of history.

Who would have ever thought that a plantation of tobacco could reach as far as Italy, when many thought that the islands of the Caribbean are the breeding ground of the finest tobacco leaves, or so we thought. Toscano cigars are distinct European cigars that takes pride in its own special taste and as huge a flavor and fragrance as Tuscany. The Europeans can only thank Christopher Columbus for his effort of bringing the seeds to this part of the world after he visited Cuba, where he saw the locals puffing smokes of the rolled tobacco leaves. When the tobacco reached the European continent, it was used as medication, which many thought that it cured specific illnesses.

A little bit of the present.

As the popular saying goes, "Toscano never cheats", is apt for Toscano cigars, due to the fact that they are rolled according to its natural shape. Every Toscano cigar does not go through the molding procedure unlike the typical cigars from the Caribbean wherein they are pressed utilizing a cigar molder in order to achieve the preferred shape.

Some popular Toscano cigars are the Moro, which measures 230mm while the diameter of its belly is 20mm, and the foot diameter reaches up to 13mm. The Moro weighs 19.5 g of pure tobacco. The Toscano Originale has a length that measures 158mm and spans a width of 39 inches. In every packet of Toscano Originale, there are only two cigars inside. However, the Toscano Originale Selected has 30 cigars in every pack. There are other kinds of Toscano Cigars offered like the Garibaldi, Toscano Antica Riserva, Ammezzati Garibaldi, Antico Toscano, and Toscani Extra Vecchi. The width of these cigars range from 35-38 inches, while the length is 75, 80 and 150mm.

Maledetto Toscano.

This is a group of people that has a passion for outstanding food, classic wines, and excellent smokes. They spearheaded fantastic fun and enjoyment among their peers with themed gastronomic affairs coupled with a toast of wine and a puff of Toscano cigars. It practically wanted to promote the Tuscan cigar to the world hoping that it would equal in patronage to those originating from the Caribbean. Surely, Tuscany has plenty to be proud of, its location, people, history and its cigars.Cigar Club San Diego\nGo to this web page
