Everybody knows that the Toscano Cigar is made with Kentucky tobacco which, as the name implies, originated from the United States. Toscano Anno Domini 1492 is created as a tribute to the discovery of the Americas in 1492 by the infamous Italian explorer Christopher Columbus, who incidentally also came across tobacco during one of his voyages.
Toscano Anno Domini 1492 differs from other Toscano cigars; its blend is characterized by the use of 100% American Kentucky tobacco both as the wrapper and filler. The finest grade of tobacco from Tennessee is fire-cured with aromatic wood for more than a month, then processed with double fermentation and hand-rolled by skilled Toscano "sigaraie". Its subsequent 12-month maturation contributes to its stunning, round body.
