Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 Silver Edition, Grand Churchill

Wow, this was a FANTASTIC smoke. I didn’t want to put it down. I lit it up, it smoked nice and smooth and the flavor was outstanding. I tasted woody flavors and some some hints of citrus (which I didn’t recognize, along with perhaps a slight nutty flavor. The ash clung to the end of the cigar and burned to a clean-looking white. It held for a long time on the cigar before I have to roll it off in the ashtray. There was plenty of smoke and the draw was near perfect.

From Carlos Torano’s website:
This cigar commemorates the exodus of expert cigar families and their impact on the cigar industry after the nationalization of all tobacco farms and factories by the Cuban government in 1959. The Toranos were one of those families. In the tradition of Cuban cigars, this blend is medium to full bodied. The beautiful Criollo wrapper blends magnificently with the combination of Honduran, Mexican and Costa Rican filler.
