Clint Eastwood smokes a Toscanlli cigar in Sergeo Leone's Spaghetti Westerns.
A packet of Toscanelli.
These cigars are produced by Cigarettes Toscana in Italy. A Toscanelli is half a Toscana cigar. The Toscana cigars are not straight-sided cylinders like most cigars but have a curve in their sides which makes them bulge in the middle. When they are cut in half they give the distinctive fat-ended shape you see in Sergeo Leone's Westerns. Italy grows tobacco plants but the leaves are prepared by Cigarettes Toscana in a unusual way. The leaves are dampened while they are being dried, causing them to foment slightly and giving them a distinctive aroma.
