Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years Robusto
Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years Robusto cigars commemorate 50 years since the mass exodus brought about by Cuba's Communist Revolution. Among Cuba's then-brightest cigar talents was Carlos Toraño, who fled the country to begin life anew in the free world. Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years Robusto sports a blend of Nicaraguan Esteli & Pueblo Nuevo longfillers, Honduran binder, and a shimmering Brazilian Arapiraca Maduro wrapper. The cigar reveals a medium-bodied, and complex smoke brimming with flavors of sweet wood, nutmeg, coffee and cinnamon. Order your box now!
The draw was way too tight so I tried massaging the stick, then the wrapper cracked in several places. Flavor profile is vaguely similar to the Signature, but much smoother, well-balanced and medium bodied, with toasted Brazilian nuts and some herbs on the palate and white pepper on the retrohale. Was at its best on the last third. It s a shame Torano couldn t do a better job putting this together as the tobacco combination appears to be quite excellent. It paired nicely with a scotch aged in sherry barrels. Burned for about 40 minutes. Other than the Salutem Robustos I ve now lost interest in gambling on the Torano productions. 88 points
i have 80 different cigars in my 9 humidors and have smoked over 500 different cigars over the last 15 years...i would say this cigar is one of the most satisfying i have ever smoked...tasty and so smooth with lots of smoke, this cigar is a killer
This cigar has excellent balance, a nicely firm draw, and just enough spice to be memorable. A great buy!
