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.
