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.
