Summer’s in full swing, and there’s no better way to enjoy your summer days than by smoking a quality cigar.  Speaking of quality cigar’s, today’s reviews will cover a pair of stogies from quality brands in the form of the Cohiba Comador and the Torano Exodus Finite.

Cohiba Comador

Cohiba launched the Comador at the start of this year using hip hop mogul Jay-Z to hype the line.  Here are the details that accompanied its release:

”General Cigar Company announces the launch of Comador, a super premium cigar developed in partnership with Shawn “JAY Z” Carter.  Comador was developed under Cohiba®, the preeminent luxury brand owned by General Cigar, and marks JAY Z’s first collaboration in the handmade cigar category.

Shawn “JAY Z” Carter said, “I worked with Cohiba because I knew they’d take my vision of a luxury cigar and bring it to life in the right way. We took our time working on this, to get the blend to exactly where I wanted it to be. Comador looks and tastes the way I think a cigar should.”

The artisans of Cohiba spent two years collaborating with JAY Z to develop the cigar’s flavor and characteristics.

Dan Carr, president of General Cigar commented, “As a visionary, artist and connoisseur, JAY Z is the epitome of modern luxury and the ideal partner for Cohiba. JAY brought tremendous creativity to the development of Comador, and we responded by leveraging Cohiba’s assets to deliver an amazing cigar using rare, proprietary tobaccos, with contemporary, urbane packaging.”

This limited release was mostly confined to the NYC area, but it was also made available online through  I was able to get my hands on a pricy Comador, so let’s go ahead and break it down, shall we?

The Comador comes in one format, a Toro that measures 6 x 52.  Made in Santiago, Dominican Republic, the Comador features a blend of proprietary tobaccos from the Caribbean and Central America, and is topped off by a rare Connecticut Havana wrapper.

The Comador definitely gives off a premium vibe with its appearance, and that begins with the black and gold band near the head that showcases the brand name and moniker.  The cigar itself has a dark brown wrapper that’s oily and looks very smooth.  Only a few minor veins are visible.  The Toro feels firm to the touch and I notice no soft spots.  It has a spicy cold taste and a pre-light aroma of wood.

After using a punch cut to prep the Comador, the cigar lights and produces a favorable draw.  Plenty of smoke comes with each puff and no touch-ups are needed at all.  The same holds true for re-lights.  The ash is solid and gray in color.  Smoking time is around 80 minutes.
