What Cigar Did Clint Eastwood Smoke?

Clint Eastwood was smoking Toscano cigars in the Spaghetti Westerns directed by Sergio Leone. Expertly and insightfully handmade in Italy, Toscano is a tough cigar for tough people. This cigar has roots that trace all the way back to 1818 when it was first introduced in Lucca, in the Tuscany region of Italy. It is made using fire-cured Kentucky tobacco and has an elliptical shape (thicker midsection with slimmer ends).

Toscano cigars are fire-cured in ovens fueled by oak and beech wood. This process of fire-curing infuses the Toscano cigars with unique flavors and aroma. There are many varieties of Toscano cigars in terms of strength: mild, medium, strong, and this is determined by their respective aging duration - typically between 4 and 12 months.
