The Toscano cigar is the original Italian cigar manufactured in Tuscany, Italy. It is made of high-quality fermented Kentucky tobacco. Founded in the early 19th century, the Toscano cigar is rich in history, tradition and heritage. It is an established brand in Italy and is also well known in Switzerland and Austria.
The Toscano cigar has a characteristic elliptical shape with truncated ends that have a smaller diameter than the central part (belly). The diameter of the cigar varies depending of the type of Toscano, from a minimum of 13mm to 16.5mm. However, after a period of time, the thickness of certain types of cigars have been reduced by a few millimeters, decreasing its smoke time.
