The brand Toscano is the only cigar in Italy.
The cigar also consists of pure Italian Tobacco, originating in Tuscany, where the real Kentucky tobacco has been rebuilt to make it out of pipe.
A tobacco harvest has accidentally become wet, causing the tobacco to ferment, for pipe tobacco it could not be used anymore and a simple cigar was rolled. When customers began to cure these Tuscanos, these cigars became a regular production of this humidified and highly fermented tobacco.
The smaller Toscanello models are already halved and can therefore be lighted directly.
The Toscana cigars have a characteristic shape, because they have a smaller diameter than the central part. The diameter of the cigars varies on the type of Toscana cigar. The minimum is 13mm and the longest is 16.5mm. Another characterization of the Toscana cigars is the uneven, sometimes lumpy, surface. The process of making these cigars does not require shaping, henceforth the noticeable ribs of the wrapping leaves.
The tobacco leaves of the Toscana cigars, undergo a type of wet fermentation. They are moistened and flame-cured in ovens fueled by oak and beech woods for a total of 15 to 20 days. This fuse is part of what makes these types of cigars so great.
Unlike any Caribbean cigar, where a binder is rolled around the filler tobacco before the wrapper covers it over, the Toscano cigar is made by rolling the filler tobacco with only the wrapper tobacco. Further on the production of cigars is split in two lines. The first lines are the high quality cigars which are produced by hand. And the second line is produced by machine.
