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 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.

Was disappointed with these; to be honest. The draw was really tight, the flavour was quite bland, and one went out three times. I may have just been dealt a duff card, but I shan’t be buying these again any time soon.

CGars know how to look after cigars and dispatched to me two of these fine cigars. I have smoked them in the past while in Italy, and they were hard and dry, unlike those in this review. The cigars were firm without being hard and felt nice and supple. A good omen. A decent cigar needs a good partner; I drank a mug of Peruvian arabica blend coffee, No 4 strength with a chocolatey flavour - nice and strong. You get that ice cream moment with every draw of this smooth, cool burning cigar, which I like to cut in half and smoke. It lasts about 15 to 20 minutes that way. I can tell you that the cigar makes the coffee taste nice and smooth and the coffee works so well with the smoke - the flavour sits nicely on the tongue. A cracking duo, a super smoke and a nice relaxing 20 odd minutes.

Great tasting cigar , well constructed quite mild and smooth. Cut in half and smoked , not peppery or spicy at all. Great for a summers day, perhaps a little mild for me, nice draw, not to tight.

Whats not to like about these cigars? Mild but packed with character and gentle flavours that are reminiscent of warm summer days, fresh hey, fresh baked bread, brewing coffee and burnt caramel. Nothing intense, its all about hints and nuance. Texture is nice, draw is spot-on and if you have the time to enjoy the whole thing at once then there is well over an hours enjoyment in there. On the flip side, snip it in the middle and enjoy it twice; win - win! 😁 I am totally sold on the uniqueness of the Italian Nostrano cigars, good any time, any where.

Just smoked this cigar on a nice sunny morning with the dog this morning and what a quality cigar this is, having never tried an Italian cigar before I must admit I was a bit curious as to what this would be like but after lighting up and smoking I can say it was worth it. This cigar burns evenly and has a lovely smooth taste and I also caught some hints of hay and earth in some areas too. The draw was spot on and was in general a fantastic experience! highly recommend!!
