Nostrano del Brenta are hand finished cigars and are the only cigar brand produced in Italy, which is from entirely Italian tobacco. Other cigars contain a lot of Kentucky tobacco imported from the US.

The Nostrano del Brenta tobacco is unique to the Veneto (pronounced VENNETTO) region of northern Italy, of which Venice is the capital. There is just 1 harvest a year given the European climate.

The tobacco is reputedly from Cuban seed brought by a monk into Italy around 1550. The tobacco is recorded to have been produced for smoking from 1763.

All the cigars have names associated with the Venetian state or Italy - Il Doge was the historic ruler of Venice, Casanova the famous romantic lover, Clandestino is in relation to historic clandestine tobacco smuggling of which they are very proud, and Taliano refers to a half-Italian community that formed in South America. Il Doge and the Taliano cigars are the traditional Italian shape - like an airship - and which are meant to be cut in half and shared with your friend over an espresso or beer.

The producer is akin to a regionally devoted craft beer producer. They are very proud of their heritage and also their production which is local to them and largely unchanged over time.

This small cigar is perfect for a quick smoke break whilst still getting the full satisfaction of smoking a larger cigar. Due to the small size, the quality of taste comes immediately after the first draft. The typical aromas of Tobacco Nostrano del Brenta are enhanced by a specific manufacturing process, which provides leaves used in wrapper and binder of the cigar pass twice in the fermentation cell.

These cigars are produced completely by hand with wrapper and binder using short filler Tobacco aged at last three years and cultivated only in Veneto Region.

Tasting Notes

The Clandestino has pleasant herbaceous aroma and a delicate hint of honey. When lit, it develops intense aromas of wood, leather and coffee. The bouquet then evolves towards the middle of the cigar, with notes of cocoa and toasting. The smoke proceeds in a constant and balanced way, the nicotine strength is not excessive, and allows enjoyment of the cigar until the end.

This cigar came to me feeling a bit dry, I discarded its little box and put it to rest in the humidor for month by which time it was looking and smelling wonderful. Compared to Toscano and other Italian cigars it is well rolled and nicely presented. It would not be right to compare it to a Cuban, they wont be to everyones taste but they are unique and of interest to an adventurous palate or an Italian sympathiser. It lit well and with that first puff my taste buds were hit by an extraordinary combination of herbaceous notes, particularly mint and aniseed with supportive and very appealing dry, earthy tobacco flavours. It burned evenly and with a steadiness that allowed for a good quantity of smoke without being hot. The ash was almost white and very solid. The flavours and aroma remained rich and defined throughout and about halfway down the mint turned towards menthol and the whole experience was reminiscent of strolling through a rocky sun drenched herb garden. It smoked down further than I had expected and gave me about 40 mins of curious pleasure. It was certainly unusual but very enjoyable. I think it ought to be smoked post lunch in the sun with one of those herby digestif liqueurs.

Sadly not for me after trying one following your video review. Nutty and woody, with a hint of spice and black pepper, but short finish for me and left your mouth extremely dry. Also do not like the shape and mouth feel.

Sadly I was disappointed. As others have said its a well made stick which burns well but the flavours are, if youre used to Cubans, an aquired taste. Maybe its me, maybe it was a wrong un, but I was left with a taste and hand/clothing smell not too dissimilar to petrol! Surely this isnt the botanicals which the other reviewers mention. I didnt enjoy it at all and Im old and ugly enough to give anything a far crack or the whip. Will I be buying another...not a chance sorry.
