This year as well, the Toscano’s Sigari d’Autore line is expanding with a new product, the Puccini. This cigar is dedicated to the famous composer born in Lucca, famous for works such as La Bohème, Tosca, Madama Butterfly, Turandot, and a strenuous Toscano smoker. Unlike other Cigars of the Sigari d’Autore series proposed in the past, that were all limited editions, the Puccini is a regular production item. It comes in five count packs, at a price of € 7.50.
Once the package is open, we find ourselves in infront of a cigar with dark and uniform wrapper. To the touch, the cigar is rough, but not excessively, and even the veins, although present, are not very pronounced. The band is very minimal, bearing the effigy of Giacomo Puccini and the Italian tricolor on the back.

Toscano Puccini: the cold draw reveals aroma of natural rubber, wood and earth, all of good and equal intensity.
In conclusion, the Toscano Puccini surprises with a note worthy flavor intensity, highlighted by a contained strength that allows you to perceive even the slightest nuances. The profile broad and the flavors are all well recognizable. The combination of Valtiberian and North American tobaccos seems to have been really successful. Perfect even if smoked ammezzato.
