cigreleas5.20 It's time yet again for a discussion of new and upcoming cigar releases. We have quite the mixed bag today, and it includes some very large cigars. Keep reading for more on release info from Torano, 262 Cigars, Davidoff, and Camacho.

Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years BFC 6 x 60

Do you enjoy thick cigars? If so, you have a new stick to look forward to, as Miami-based Torano Family Cigar Company recently announced that it would debut its Exodus 1959 50 Years BFC 6 x 60 in July. The backdrop for the introduction will be the IPCPR trade show in Las Vegas, which takes place on July 17-21.

Once the BFC 6 x 60 is released, it will mark the sixth vitola in the Exodus 1959 50 Years line. The line was originally released to commemorate 50 years since the Communist Revolution in Cuba caused a mass exodus of cigar families, which included the Toranos. The addition of the thick vitola is not a bad idea, especially when you consider the line's success when it comes to ratings from popular cigar publications. Charlie Torano, President of the Torano Family Cigar Company, explained the thought process behind the BFC 6 x 60's creation in the official press release. He said, “The popularity of larger ring gauges continues and we felt that the Exodus 1959 50 Years blend worked very favorably in a 6×60.”

While the BFC 6 x 60 will certainly be the thickest member of the line, it will have the same composition of its predecessors. The filler is a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli and Pueblo Nuevo. The binder is Honduran, and the wrapper is of the Brazilian Arapiraca Sun Grown variety. The cigar is said to offer a complex profile that's sweet and creamy and contains notes of dark chocolate, raisin, and spice.

If the Exodus 1959 50 Years line sounds tempting, but the BFC 6 x 60 is a bit too thick for your taste, the line also comes in the following sizes: the 5 x 50 Robusto, 5 x 55 Box Press, 5 1/2 x 52 Torpedo, and 6 x 48 Short Churchill. Pricing on the BFC 6 x 60 has not yet been released, but you can expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 per single if it follows the lead of other cigars in the line.

Torano isn't done with the BFC 6 x 60, however. You can expect two new brands to be revealed at the IPCPR show in Vegas as well. As for any details on those, Charlie Torano had this to say in the press release, “Would love to talk about it but all I can say is that they are currently under lock and key.” That certainly isn't much of an insight into the new brands, but at least they gave away one of their secrets in the form of the BF 6 x 60 release.
