Toscano Pastrengo was first launched as a limited edition to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Carabinieri (the national gendarmerie of Italy which was founded in June 1814 by Victor Emmanuel I of Sardinia). The cigar has beautiful red satin band with its name "Pastrengo" printed in creamy white. It has an intense flavor of dried fruit, walnut and leather. Once smoked, Toscano Pastrengo is pleasing to the palate with hints of almond, pepper and toast. In 2015, Manifatture Sigaro Toscano re-launched Toscano Pastrengo in limited quantities for that year.
