Considering I’ve smoked over a box of the Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years Short Churchills it was time to write the review. I meant to write it about a month ago, but the holidays and the kids bringing home colds to share forced me to cut back on how much I’ve been smoking.
The Exodus 1959 50 Years commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Torano Family’s exodus from Cuba and is the third cigar to join the Exodus line. It is available in three sizes Robusto (5 X 50), Torpedo (5 1/2 X 52) and Short Churchill (6 X 48). The Wrapper is Brazilian Arapiraca Sun-Grown, the Binder is Honduran and the Filler is a blend of Nicaraguan tobacco from Esteli and Pueblo Nuevo.
Already a fan of Brazilian tobacco and the Exodus line it didn’t take much for me to fall in love with this full bodied, full flavored cigar. I’ve smoked all three sizes and haven’t had any issues with the construction. I’m impressed when I can go through 30+ cigars of the same blend and not have any issues. The cigar has a spicy bite that is mellowed some by the sweet dark chocolate flavor and the finish had a leather quality to it. Occasionally I picked up something that reminded me a bit of coffee with cream and sugar.
Verdict: For the past couple of months this has been my go to cigar. This is my favorite cigar of 2009. A fantastic full flavored cigar that is reasonably priced at under $7.00 in my local shop. If you find them don’t get one or two, get a box. Available at The Party Source (Call to Order 1-866-78CIGAR)
