The rain an the summer sun fermented Kentucky tobacco which had been sitting in a court yard.
This “rotten” tobacco was then used to make low cost sigars, unexpectedly creating a better tasting and more pleasant cigar than traditional ones. This was the origin of the “Toscano”.
It was 1818. Nowadays the tobacco manifacturer in Lucca produces the cigars according to the Toscano tradition.
The cigars are produced according toh and made tradition by personnel trained to work with the tobacco in all the manufacturing processes, representing a true artisan heritage.
Today as in th 19th century, Toscano cigars contain the taste of Tuscany.
