Packaging: Pack of 3 Cigars

Sold exclusively in the UK at C.Gars Ltd.

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.

The Il Ducale is obtained by a careful selection of short filler Tobacco Nostrano leaves, which have been aged for over three years before using them. 

Tasting Notes

The characteristic of the tobacco is that it is a mild but flavoursome smoke, with a hazelnutty flavour. It is accessible to the new, or irregular cigar smoker, as the strength is not overpowering and the nicotine content isn’t such that it will be too much for the average person.

I bought this cigar as a bit of an experiment. I had heard via youtube you could cut it in half and share or save for later. This I did and what a great result. Smoked them both with an IPA during a chess game, outside in the South Hams. It has woody and leather overtones, some roundness. More of a medium smoke rather than a strong smoke. Great burn, easy draw, each half was approx 10-15 mins. These will travel with me as they are easy to look after along with their boxed stable mate. I will be buying more to share.

Wanting to try something different I ordered one of these. It was a tightly rolled uneven cigar that I enjoyed one sunday morning with a strong coffee. The cigar comes with an open end and has a tight cold draw to it. The taste is slighlty sweet notes which burned evenly and well. I would probably have again.
