Carlos Torano 1959 Exodus robusto

The looks of this 5 x 50 box pressed cigar is great, with the classy band and the dark habano wrapper, but when you look closer you can see that the wrapper is a bit wrinkled. This cigar is made from tobacco from the Dominican republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Costa Rica. The predraw is fine and gives me the flavor of dried wood.

I can taste wood and coffee, mostly wood though. After a centimeter I can taste some leather, a bit musty though, not very nice. Wood stays noticeable on the background. After an inch the cigar tastes like ash, I don’t like this at all. The ash flavor sticks with me till the halfway point, from there I taste nothing really for a while. At 2/3rd I taste some chocolate with a light pepper in my throat. The finale is nice with a fine coffee flavor.

The cigar is hard to lit and the draw is too easy. The amount of smoke is poor and has a bit brownish faint to it., but the white ash is quite firm. The burn is great.
