I recently had an Exodus 1959 while I listened to Charlie Toraņo talk about this particular cigar. The story Charlie tells is that when the revolution occurred in 1959 in Cuba several of the tobacco families that left the country (i.e. Exodus) ended up in either the Dominican Republic, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua or Costa Rica.
So, the filler is a combination of tobacco from all 5 countries to go alongside the rich Honduran wrapper. I found it interesting to get a deeper understanding of the story behind this particular cigar.
Cigar Aficianado had it in the top 3 legal cigars in the U.S. (#5 overall) for 2006. It is a fine fine smoke...
Plus, I would add that Charlie Toraņo has always been very kind and courteous with his time when I've had the chance to speak to him about his cigars, etc.
