torexod1959pic1 Two cigars created to commemorate special times are the subject of today’s reviews, and both come from Carlos Toraño. Keep reading to find out what the Carlos Toraño Exodus 1959 Torpedo and the Carlos Toraño 1916 Cameroon have to offer.

Carlos Toraño Exodus 1959 Torpedo

The Carlos Toraño Exodus 1959 line was released to commemorate the exodus of several cigar families from Cuba in 1959. This marked a pivotal time in the Toraño cigar family’s history, and what better way to celebrate their triumph than through the creation of a quality cigar line. I’ve had the pleasure of smoking and reviewing several Toraño cigars recently, so I am counting on another pleasant experience from the Exodus 1959.

The line’s Torpedo format measures 6 ½ x 54. Toraño also offers the line in a 5 x 52 Robusto, 5 ¾ x 50 Perfecto, 6 x 50 Toro, and 7 x 48 Churchill. The cigar has quite the mix of tobaccos from Latin America. The filler blend consists of Costa Rican, Dominican, Honduran, Mexican, and Nicaraguan tobaccos. The binder is Honduran, and a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper tops things off. In terms of strength, the Exodus 1959 is said to be medium to full-bodied in nature.

I’m a fan of the way in which Toraño cigars are presented, mostly because they have some of the classiest bands around. The Exodus 1959’s band displays the line’s name and the Carlos Toraño logo in an elegant mix of gold and black. The band looks great against the dark, oily wrapper. Only a few small veins are noticeable. There are no soft spots, and the cigar appears to be well-packed with tobacco. The box-pressed shape looks to be executed to perfection. As is usually the case with Toraño selections, this is one stogie with solid construction. The Torpedo’s appearance is not its only inviting aspect. The sweet pre-light aroma and chocolate cold taste have me chomping at the bit to give this baby a try.

Once lit, the Exodus 1959 Torpedo exhibits a draw that is a bit stiff. Luckily, it opens up and there’s plenty of smoke. The peppery gray ash is flaky, so don’t wear a good shirt while smoking, unless you have deep pockets. The burn stays even on its own from start to finish, so the lighter remains inactive, allowing me to concentrate on the cigar’s flavor.
