The fictional anti-hero protagonist Tony Soprano was portrayed by James Gandolfini in the HBO television drama series “The Sopranos,” which aired from 1999 to 2007.
The fictitious character, an Italian-American Mafia member, is in charge of managing his criminal enterprise in North Jersey and must cope with both the day-to-day issues of his family at work and those of his own family back at home.
Throughout the film franchise, there has been a great deal of discussion regarding the cigars Tony Soprano smokes. Since the movie’s producer had an agreement with CAO, there was even a rumor that the company provided the cigars for the film, which is why Tony Soprano consumes their cigars.
CAO Maduro L’Anniversaire Robusto cigar
The CAO Maduro L’Anniversaire Robusto cigar is what Tony Soprano smoked in the film, according to multiple outlets. The flavors of this cigar are strong and distinct, making it clear that it is a full-bodied smoke. Maduro-variety tobaccos are used for the wrapper, binder, and filler.
Furthermore, the wrapper on this Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro cigar is finely woven, oily, and has noticeable veins. It has an initial sweetness that helps to balance the rich tastes of espresso, chocolate, mocha, and a subtle hint of black pepper.
Tony Soprano was seen smoking a Macanudo cigar in addition to the CAO Maduro L’Anniversaire Robusto cigar in one of the episodes of the program.
The Dominican Republic’s General Cigar Company manufactures Macanudo cigars. It is renowned for its mild flavor and light coffee Connecticut shade wrapper, but it is also offered in a darker Maduro wrapper.
The majority of the cigars mentioned above have tastes of chocolate, earth, nuts, coffee, spice, and pepper. Its strengths range from mild to medium-strength, making them ideal for people who are just starting to smoke cigars or wish to explore the world of cigarettes.
Cuban Montecristos cigar
Despite not smoking this cigar, Tony Soprano was spotted handing it to Dr. Cusamoano in a box. The Montecristos cigars are one of the biggest brands in the world of Cuban cigars. The brand was founded in 1935 by ambitious cigar-maker Alonso Menendez.
One of the most rated cigars of the brand is their Montecristo Double Edmundo which is a medium to full strength cigar that has hints of oak, nutty, woody, and leather with a chocolatey and creamy finish.
