Consumers will soon see a new Toscano arriving at U.S. retailers, though the cigar itself has been around for nearly 40 years.

Today the company announced the upcoming stateside release of Garibaldi, which uses an Italian fire-cured Kentucky wrapper and a filler of Italian and U.S. fire-cured Kentucky tobaccos. It is available in a single vitola that measures 6 1/8 x 39, presented in packs of five cigars priced at $19, before taxes.


It is named for Giuseppe Garibaldi, an Italian military general and nationalist known as “The Hero of the Two Worlds,” whose quests helped unify Italy into one kingdom. According to the company, it was first presented in 1982.

An exact shipping date has not yet been announced, but a representative from Miami Cigar & Co., which distributes the brand in the U.S., said it would be shipping very soon.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
