Manifatture Sigaro Toscano has announced a new edition to its Toscano Master Aged line, the Toscano Master Aged 4.
Last year Toscano launched three blends under the Toscano Master Aged series. These cigars undergo an extra maturation process. The cigars are aged in what are called “Maturation Cells”. Starting from the fifth day of maturation, the product is daily monitored for specific humidity and temperature standards checked by a specialized ‘affinatore’ (refiner). The entire maturation process lasts for a minimum of 360 days.
The Toscano Master Aged Series 4 uses an Italian Kentucky wrapper that undergoes a special micro-fermentation process. After the fire-cure process, the wrapper is stored in special rooms that are conditioned at very high and constant humidity and temperature for about ten days.
The filler is composed of 100% fire-cured Kentucky seed tobacco, found in Val Tiberina, Tuscany, and stateside in Kentucky and Tennessee. The cigar measures 6 3/10 x 46 and is packaged in 30-count boxes. Pricing is set at $8.00 per cigar.
It is anticipated the Toscano Master Aged 4 will be showcased at the 2023 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show which opens July 7, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
