I stopped by the Toscano booth during the middle of the Euro 2020 finals. For most cigar companies, this would be of zero consequence, but when it’s the Italian cigar company, the company was understandably a bit distracted.

Speaking of the Toscano booth, it’s an actual Toscano booth for the first time in quite some time. Previously, Toscano was in the Miami Cigar & Co.’s booth, but earlier this year, Toscano announced it would be moving its distribution to Avanti Cigar Co. As such, the company now has its own booth, which is one of the taller booths on the trade show floor.

Toscano Nobile (2021)

This was originally released 10 years ago to celebrate Italy’s 150th anniversary as a country. Like so many other Toscano cigars, it uses fire-cured tobacco from both the U.S. and Italy. The cigar does not use a binder and is able to be cut in half and smoked in two separate pieces. Most notably, it was actually rolled in 2011 meaning these cigars have 10 years of age on them.

  • Wrapper: Italy (Kentucky Fire Cured)
