Carlos Torano exodus 1959 robusto

This is another Carlos Torano from the blowout sale that the Dutch distributer is holding. The Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 robusto is a 5×52 stick with a filler of Dominican, Mexican, Honduran, Nicaraguan and Costa Rican tobacco, a binder from Honduras and a dark natural Habano wrapper from Nicaragua. The cigars are produced in Honduras.
The box pressed cigar has a beautiful dark and oily wrapper with a thin vein. The construction feels a bit soft. The band is big and beautiful. I smell a barnyard and straw. The predraw is fine, I taste tobacco.
I taste an earthy flavour with a nice metallic flavour and a hint of chocolate. After half an inch I taste wood and some earthy flavour. The chocolate flavour has disappeared. The flavours are smooth and nice. Halfway I taste autumn flavours, wood and leaves with a mild chilli pepper on the background. In the aftertaste I notice some chocolate.


After two thirds I taste wood with leaves, the pepper and the chocolate have disappeared but the cigar is mild spicy.
The cigar lasted me an hour and forty minutes. I got a lot of smoke and the draw is great. The white as is firm. The burn is a bit crooked. This cigar is medium flavoured and medium bodied, I liked the flavours although the cigar is quite one dimensional and therefore a bit boring.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, I want more

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.
Would I buy this cigar again? Simple answer: no
