Toscano Il Moro is a tribute to 200 years of Italian heritage in the fine art of cigar crafting. Since 2000, a strictly limited edition Toscano Il Moro is hand-rolled in Lucca, Italy exclusively by a few selected seasoned "sigaraie" (or cigar rollers). This top of the range Toscano cigar is a rare collector's item and produced only once a year in very limited quantity.
Il Moro is made of the highest quality and carefully selected North American Kentucky tobacco as wrapper with Italian-grown Kentucky tobacco as long filler. It is then aged for 12 months under stringent quality control. The length of Il Moro is 40% longer (measuring 9 inches) than regular Toscano cigars, while its diameter measures 25% wider (at ring gauge 50).
The collection of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 editions are created to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Toscano Cigar on 2018. Each cigar is sold individually and inside a solid wooden box with leather outer. The 2015 edition has a green band. Its smoke is a spicy taste of bitter almonds with a shade of woody notes, circled with the aromas of leather and dried fruits.
