Carlos Toraño makes some of the most consistently tasty cigars around. They quietly ply their craft with a focus on quality, and the Exodus 1959 blend is one of their finest. Have a look at this stick. It’s hard to pull your eyes away from the wrapper - it hugs the filler blend like a river of dark chocolate. Gorgeous. After lighting, a blast of creamy, slightly spicy greets you, followed by some slightly chocolatey note. Medium to full-bodied, it’s composed of an Habana 2000 wrapper accompanied by a complex, five-country blend of Dominican, Honduran, Mexican, Nicaraguan, and Costa Rican tobaccos.

In addition to Top 25 honors and several 90+ ratings, Exodus Gold 1959 received a well deserved 92-point score, noting: 

"Wonderful texture on this dark, box-pressed beauty. It is woody and toasty with a solid black cherry note and hints of cedar. Rich, balanced and elegant.

Customer Reviews of “Torano Exodus Gold 1959”
Carlos Torano himself told me this is his favorite cigar he makes. He than proceeded to talk me out of buying a box of Casa Toranos and buy a box of Exodus 1959. I did so w/o ever trying one and well, Chuck didnt tell me no lies.
SB of St Petersburg, FL
It's always a pleasure to find a new favorite for the humi. That would be the "Carlos Torano Exodus 1959". Semi sweet, creamy and some pepper. Dee-lish. A flavor explosion. Very satisfied with this cigar. Rated a solid 91.
VB of San Francisco, CA
I smoked the Torpedo (Carlos Torano Exodus 1959) with a glass of nice scotch for a wonderful smoking experience. The smoke is pleasing and aromatic and the smoking was very satisfying. I paid retail for this single cigar and felt that it was worth the price.
JD of MHastings, NE
The (Torano Exodus 1959 Gold) was the first maduro I ever tried when I got into cigars with my navy and marine buddies. Over 4 years later, tons of all flavors, many maduros, these are still one of my all time favorites. My humi has always had a few in stock from the beginning. The Toranos know how to make a rich,cocoa lovers stick!!
CK of King George, VA
This (Torano Exodus 1959)is one fine, rich smoke!
CD of Bristol, CT
The Carlos Torano Exodus Gold 1959 is one of my favorite cigars. Very consistant and a med/full, closer to medium smoke. Roasted coffee, Cocoa and Black Cherry abound. What no one ever mentions is the wrapper... it has to be the best smelling wrapper out there. Very enjoyable cigar indeed. The ratings are pretty accurate, but I would grade it just a bit higher.
GG of Florence, OR
This mild-plus Toro was very enjoyable (Torano Exodus 1959). A perfect draw combined with a perfectly even burn, firm ash and pleasant flavour makes this slightly box-pressed cigar a good choice.
MC of MLeesburg, VA
I tried the corona 1959, and it was a good stick, but the allure of the box-pressed symetry of the Signature 1959 tickled my curiosity. I troed one... and well, hurriedly grabbed another. From the very first draw after crafting the burn on one of these babies is sweet, complex and bobied. Not heavy -- not too light but I wouldn't label it a medium body. It's just good, very... very good. It can box with Ashton's VSG brand for smoothness, and that is hard to do. It has a subtle spice to it, the aroma is delicate and spicy. The flavor is what really makes this a winner. Sweet, subtle... but still a man's cigar. It has made my cabinet. My rate this stick: 90
CS of Southern, CA
the Carlos Torano signature edition is outstanding... my favorite smoke by far. I have 2 Exodus 1959 that are sitting in my humidor...may try one soon
KS of Columbus, NJ
I tried one of these after reading the Torano interview in CA magazine. This is one of my new favorites. This smoke is mild yet full of flavor. Hats off to Torano for a great smoke at a great price.
RB of Marietta, OH
One of my new favorites (Torano Exodus 1959). What's not to like. Smooth and satisfying, and a great price at CI.
JB of Bossier City, LA
This is an absolutely delicious smoke (Torano Exodus 1959). I am rather new to cigars, but in my short cigar life, this is the best I have had. Chocolately, oily, rich, robust, but sooo smooth. Loved it.
UF of Alexandria, VA
i'd have to say the robusto is one of those hard to find best bang for your buck!
CO of middle east, AE
loved this smoke. Flavorful and well balanced. tasted various flavors in it. Burned consistently start to finish.
RO of Rockland, MA
The first two I smoked out of a 10pk were a little immature, but still good... After a month of humidor settling, I lit the third- and understood where those 90+ ratings came from. The first two thirds were flavorful and well worth a 94 rating, but the last third (while still good) was a little too spicy and burned a bit hot. My favorite cigars are typically one's I can smoke to my fingertips with no real heat, but that said, this was a very enjoyable cigar, and well worth checking out regardless of the extra heat towards the nub. Overal I'd give this a solid (and conservative) 90.
RS of Valhalla, NY
Just had my first Torano Exodus 1959. I could go on about complexities and flavor but I'm afraid it might come off as a MadLib love letter. I will say that if I win the lottery quitting my job and smoking these all day every day is a real possibility.
JO of Stillwater, MN
Got 10 of these Bad Boys since I've never tried the Torano's Cigars and after sparking one up, "WOW"!! I got hooked!! I ended up buying more and I normally smoke one after work. My Family and Friends Love smelling the Aroma of these great Cigars. I will always have these in my humidor for sure!
WA of Miami, FL
I've got a question for everyone on this cigar. I'm kind of new to cigars I have purchased about a hundred in the past 4 months. I have toranos gurkhas all sorts of stuff. when I got these cigars I ordered the 6x60s. I let them sit in my humi for about 3 weeks and fired one up. It was very bitter,I tried a robusto from the flight sampler and was blown away. Love at first smoke. Should I let them sit longer? I'm not sure what to do, can one of my fellow cigar enthuasiast help me out?
RC of Fulton, NY
Well the smoke was overall pleasant. I actually quite enjoyed it. The foot was good, smooth draw rich thick smoke and initially mild. The flavor soon turned heavily into smoked walnut with oak notes in the body. Going into the finish the smoke dried out and had some bitterness, but not excessively. I agree with one other review that the finish was spicy; I got flavors of pepper and nutmeg. Overall a great cigar, it was rolled excellent, top notch! Average burn and fairly consistent, the ash was short and light white with a gray ring inside. I see why they ranked this 90+
BF of mil, WI
Smooth tasting cigar and long burn. Beautiful cigar with robust flavor. Great after a meal.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Voluminous smoke output that is thick on palate with a creamy texture. Medium strength with medium to full flavors. Sweet tobacco flavor on lips with cold draw. Once lit, flavors of deep sweet tobacco, rich coffee and hints of black cherry mid palate. A very soft medium length finish of toasted caramel, cream and nuts.
PC of LEXINGTON, SC
Just an OK stick. If you want a bit more flavor opt for the Exodus 1959 50 Year.
RA of MESA, AZ
Rich fruit flavor well balanced by cedar; a very satisfying smoke. Great value.
GA of MOUNT BETHEL, PA
Back around the late 90's/early 2000's this was perhaps my favorite cigar. Today it is still a very enjoyable smoke and I have a supply in one of my humidors. Back then you couldn't get a Flor De Las Antillas (1st one I had instantly made me think of a Torano Exodus Gold) or a La Herencia Core. Both are similar to a Torano (and both a little better in my opinion) but are also more expensive. One thing that Torano has going for it is that it comes in one of the most beautiful boxes you will ever see. My girlfriend wanted a box for her jewelry and she instantly picked this one out of my collection.
TS of Elkhart, IN
Best cigar taste, smoke & burn when I get a good one. Trouble is, they are all not good ones in the box. But still worth it just to get the "spot on" one every other time.
PD of LEXINGTON, MA
A fabulous smoke. Need I say more?
NG of Chico, CA
I found this to be an excellent quality cigar, one of the best put together cigars I have smoked, Having only been smoking about a year I don't have a lot to go on, but this one was good enough for me to give it a review. Great quality, great fill and burn. I have actually come to make sure this one is always present in my collection. Being a new cigar smoker it is a little heavy for me, but such great quality it is a pleasure to just enjoy smoking it.

Carlos Torano Exodus 1959

Posted by Steve R
This Editor’s Pick can be summed up with two words: HERSHEY BAR. As many have already found out for themselves, the Torano Exodus 1959 is gorgeous. Dark, sharply boxed-pressed cigars that seem to leak natural oils, causing me to froth at the mouth every time I reach into the humidor to grab one. In my opinion, this is the best Torano to date, and as an added bonus, it’s perfectly stackable for easy storage!

I’ve smoked more Exodus Torpedos and Toros than I could ever begin to count, so I could probably write this in my sleep. But that would just make me want one, so I might as well grab another from the humi. As usual, Torano is right on key in quality. The Habana 2000 wrapper is prime – smooth, dark, oily and nary a blemish in sight. Construction is solid – the torpedo cap is perfect, there’s no soft spots to be found and the square-press is impeccable. What more can you expect from Carlos Torano? The man knows how to make a stogie! Now it’s time to sit back and relax as I enjoy this super-slow burning Honduran cigar. To say it features an assortment of flavors is an understatement. It’s made with a 5-country blend of long-leaf tobaccos: Honduran, Dominican, Mexican, Nicaraguan, Costa Rican. Amazingly, the Torano family managed to pinpoint the best nuance from each of these tobaccos to create a wonderfully complex smoke. I notice a rich, chocolatey character from the Nicaragua leaves. The robust earthiness must be derived from the Honduran leaves. The spiciness that lingers on my palate is a combination of premium Mexican and Costa Rican tobaccos. All while the mellow and smooth Dominican tobaccos tame the smoke a bit, keeping things on the medium-bodied level. A 90 minute, 5-country tour for my palate that I’ve revisited many times before, and will probably never get bored of. Open up any of my humidors, on any given day, and you will find at least one Exodus 1959 waiting for me. Just make sure it’s still there when you close the humidor, ya mooch.

Torano Exodus 1959

Posted by Brandon S

Boy Howdy! If it could ever be possible to infuse a chocolate bar into a few leaves of tobacco and roll it into a cigar, it would unquestionably be called a Torano Exodus 1959! Now don’t get me wrong here because I’m not saying that this is a flavored smoke in any way. Instead, what I’m trying to get across to you without actually handing you one is the fact that this cigar truly has something unique to offer.

Take one from the box and the first thing you will notice is the chocolate-brown Habana-2000 wrapper which, upon close inspection hints at the care and quality poured into the creation of each cigar. Generally speaking, a cigar laden with bumps and veins is not particularly appealing and often leads to soft spots that ultimately promote a poor burn. However, you’ll find none of that here...from cigar to cigar and from box to box each Exodus 1959 is as smooth and soft as a piece of fine silk. Underneath these gorgeous and oily Habana-2000 wrappers lies an unparalleled blend of tobaccos from five (count’em…5!!!) countries. Farms from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and Costa-Rica all contribute long-filler tobacco to the Exodus blend and when combined yield an amazingly complex yet smooth and rich flavor. Toast the foot and fire one up and you will first notice the rich and earthy flavor accompanied by a subtle chocolate-like note. Continue on and the complexity afforded by the five-country filler blend becomes more and more evident as the flavors change from subtle and rich to slightly spicy with creamy undertones. The chocolate nuances are now more pronounced and, as with all Torano products, the burn and draw are impeccable. Simply put, the list of factories with the ability to produce cigars this consistent in both flavor and construction year after year is very short. What’s infinitely more mind-boggling is the fact that a cigar like this can be had everyday without breaking your wallet. At less than $4 each Torano proves that you can have your cake and eat it too!

Truly an excellent value for the dollar, the Torano 1959 brings you quality, complexity and a robust array of flavors at a price that makes it a top candidate for an “everyday” smoke. My personal advice is to kick back and light one up, let it burn for an inch or so to acclimate your palate to the flavors and then set yourself up with a strong double-espresso for a cigar-smoking experience like none other. Trust me on this one, you won’t be disappointed!
