Italian Style... Simply Toscano

I didn't find any tread about Italian cigars and...
how many of you have ever tried a Toscano?

    Never tired any of those. They look pretty rustic.

    It is a typical male smoke but several women are getting attracted by this old and traditional Italian cigar.
    Since some years are available also scented with Vanilla, Grappa, Coffee, Chocolate and others.

    Grappa cigar, this swisher of the Italian world.  Kidding. 

    Are these handrolled, or machine made?   The only other cigar with Italian tobacco that comes to mind is the CAO Italia (duh).  Are there others?

    I agree they don't look sexy like a Cuban...  but taste is something else
    They can't be even compared to the american production (Avanti, Parodi, Petri, De Nobili).

    Try one if you can find them in your place

    @kenyanbees, they may be made in Honduras but they contain tobacco from Italy...  B)
  • Gray4linesGray4lines Posts: 4,691 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Ah, parodi, ive heard of those, never had one. They are a cheap machine made cheroot?

    And like Marty said, although perhaps not entirely italian, the CAO does have at least some Italian leaf.

    Those to scans look cool. I'd smoke one if I ever saw one.

    So @Kenyanbees

    How do we set up a trade? I have no idea about VAT or tax considerations outside the states

    Are you a rep for this company?

    @ Echambers, I'm not representing any company, just passion for my cigars.
    The list above is from Wiki... I've just posted it to show you the different kind of available cigars.
    Unfortunately marketing is not as good as their products and i need to buy boxes on boxes, like there is no tomorrow, when I pass by Italy

    @Kenyanbees @Eulogy @Gray4lines @jarubla @EulogyThat's a great poster! I'm a big fan of Toscano Antico (it's smoked by Clint Eastwood in those spaghetti westerns, he's such a badass). Definitely strong intense smoke, some days I cut it in half like the Italians do. Usually I get my stash from www.italiansmokes.com they've got quite a good selection. I think there's a Thanksgiving sale going on now, check it out for yourself.
