Manifatture Sigaro Toscano announces the long-awaited release of the Toscano Duecento cigar in the United States

Not many businesses can enjoy the opportunity to celebrate a 200-year storied tradition. Manifatture Sigaro Toscano did just that in 2018. To celebrate this momentous milestone, MST decided to launch an extraordinary and limited-edition product: the TOSCANO Duecento.

The cigar, two hundred millimeters in length, signifies two hundred years of tradition and Italian craftsmanship, wrapped in the smoke spires of a commemorative cigar, embraced and warmed by the skillful burn that only the cigar rollers in MST’s Lucca factory are able to create.

After a successful launch in Italy and in Europe in 2018, the cigar became a continuous edition and Manifatture Sigaro Toscano decided to launch this unique product in USA.

Each Toscano Duecento is carefully crafted from the hands of the most experienced Cigar Rollers in the Lucca Factory. The cigar is made with an exceptional dimension: a North American Kentucky seed leaf wrapper bolstering a length of 200 mm (7 ¾”) with a 46-ring gauge!

The wide belly design consists of a blended medium filler of Italian and North American Kentucky seed Tobacco. This composition affords our enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the “best of both worlds” when it comes to Toscano tobacco. The extraordinary dimensions of the Toscano Duecento provides our consumers an appreciation of the progressive evolution of the cigar and its many facets.

Finally, a long-controlled seasoning throughout each phase of the cigar slowly refines its organoleptic characteristics.

Smoking the Toscano Duecento will bring forth a satisfying taste and decisive aromaticity, making the smoking experience itself unique, flavorful and enjoyable.

In the first third of this cigar, balanced and even features stand out and quickly evolve throughout the second third into a more intense and full-bodied smoke, allowing the North American Kentucky seed tobacco to stand out with its smoky, roasted, taste. In the last third, the cigar shows all of the Toscano’s full-bodied attitude, where the smoke becomes especially strong and spicy with rustic notes ruling the experience.
