MANIFATTURE SIGARO TOSCANO ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF A NEW PREMIUM CIGAR SERIES IN THE US MARKET: TOSCANO MASTER AGED
Toscano Master Aged Cigar Series is a new range of Premium cigars made and rolled by Manifatture Sigaro Toscano exclusively for selected countries (today it is only available in USA, Germany, Austria, Spain, Romania and Serbia).
Toscano Master Aged was born from an idea of the Toscano Master Blender to create a unique making process with an extra maturation period, managed by a specialized ‘affinatore’ (refiner).
Starting from the fifth day of maturation, the product is daily checked for specific humidity and temperature standards. These standards must be constantly maintained to ensure absolute perfection. The entire maturation process lasts for a minimum of 360 days in special maturation cells, dedicated to these particular blends.
The constant care of the ‘affinatore’ (a highly experienced cigar blender) ensures the highest quality cigars, with a well-rounded, balanced and unique taste.
The 100% Kentucky seed fire cured tobacco used for the Toscano Master Aged Series has an elongated drying process that supersedes that of the standard Toscano Cigar.
Toscano Master Aged cigars are produced in three different varieties consisting of Italian and American tobacco mixed in different wrapper and filler combinations, providing each cigar with a unique taste and smoking experience.
Toscano Master Aged series 1’s filler is a blend of Kentucky tobacco from Tuscany, Tennessee and Kentucky, that provides a full body taste. The Italian wrapper with an intense brown color gives a rustic taste. The peculiar tobacco mixture makes this cigar powerful with a full body taste, although softened by the longer maturation period, making its flavour smoother and more balanced. The bigger ring gauge provides a full body and a satiating and balanced taste, with pleasing toasted aromas, typical of the Master Aged series.
Toscano Master Aged Series 2 has a wrapper of Kentucky Tobacco from Tennessee selected from the best quality of leaves fire cured for 30 days with strong essence wood. The long fire curing process gives the typical toasted taste to the cigar. The filler is a blend of Italian and US Kentucky tobacco for a full body taste mitigated by the longer maturation. An intense cigar, with toasted notes, balanced and rounded body and the hint of scented wood and dried fruit. The filler is wrapped in a bigger ring gauge enhancing the sensory impact of the smoke. A longer drying and maturation softens its undertones for a harmonious smoke.
Toscano Master Aged series 3 is defined by the exclusive use of Kentucky tobacco from North America. The peculiar harvesting method, consisting in picking up the whole plant, and a longer fire-cured process, gives a strong feature to the cigar, with a smoked taste of high intensity. Its top-quality wrapper has a uniform dark brown colour that gives the typical taste of the cigar. What makes Toscano Master Aged series 3 unique is its prominent force and a high smoke density, even if never ungraceful nor excessive. A fulfilling taste rich in toasted and aromatic scents, balanced out by the long maturation and wide belly.
