Carlos Torano Exodus Gold 1959
Carlos Toraño Exodus Gold 1959 cigars tribute all of the Cuban cigar families who fled Castro’s communists and the nationalization of the Cuban tobacco industry. Among those who left Cuba on the eve of the industry’s nationalization was Santiago’s son Carlos. He fled to the Dominican Republic with nothing but a stash of the family’s cherished tobacco seed and three generations of cigar industry knowledge with him.
Like most Toraño blends, Carlos Toraño Exodus Gold 1959 cigars are all about consistency. The idea is if you have a heightened focus on quality, consistency is a natural byproduct. Carlos Toraño Exodus Gold 1959 cigars hold a five-country blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, Dominican, Mexican, and Costa Rican long-fillers. An oily Habana 2000 wrapper dresses this blend. These wrappers are a hybrid of Cuban-seed and Connecticut shade which many say delivers the same taste, look, and feel of a Cuban leaf.
One burning, the medium-full, complex Exodus Gold 1959 offers flavors like chocolate, vanilla, cedar, and pepper. The Exodus Gold blend was ranked the No.5 cigar in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2006. It also received a rating of 91 by the same publication.
The Toraño family has come a long way since they had to leave everything in 1959. They currently own factories in Nicaragua and Honduras, where they produce nearly 20 million cigars yearly.
