"Quite possibly my favorite - regardless of price!"
Got one of these (Exodus Silver) in a Torano sampler. The Tribute was included too (black label) and was excellent with the darkest, oilest wrapper I have ever seen - smoked very nicely. However, the "silver" was absolutely amazing! It was a robusto, so I thought how will a longer cigar taste? Well, no need to worry as I bought a box of longer length and have been completely satisfied. They are full of flavor and body, but smoke very smoothly, are never harsh or bitter, burn evenly, draw nice etc., etc. I have smoked quite a few other brands costing much more (montecristo & cohiba etc) but would rather have one of these ANY DAY! I think it must have something to do with the criollo wrappers, as I realy enjoy the CAO criollo's too! Just so you don't think I'm a Torano homer, I did have one in the sampler that was very harsh, bitter, actually tasted like dirt, and I would deem complete garbage - but unfortunately don't remember which one of the 4-5 models it was or I'd trash it big time here (just know it wasn't the Tribute or Silver). Buy these with confidence as they are super cigars at a (relative) value price!

Of all the Torano products, the Exodus Silver Torpedo Especial is my favorite cigar. It is more consistant - in my experience - than either the 1916 Cameroon or Reserva Selection torpedo offerings. It has a smooth coffee and leather taste in a medium body with good balance. Generally, the construction on these cigars are exceptional. You can't go wrong having these in your humidor.
