'92' rated; #5 Cigar of 2006.
Named the 5th best cigar in the world by Cigar Aficionado in 2006, Toraño Exodus Gold is still currently ranked among the best of the best in the industry, and for good reason.
The Toraño Family has been a part of the tobacco industry for generations, opening their first factory in 1916. Since then, the demand for Toraño cigars has grown exponentially, as they have established themselves in every major cigar producing country in Central America. Due to their incredible reputation for quality and their experience in the industry (four generations), the Toraño Family not only produces their own line of premium cigars, but they have been approached by other manufacturers, such as CAO, Alec Bradley, and Gurkha to assist with their cigar production as well.
Toraño Exodus Gold 1959 was created in memory of all the Cuban cigar families who fled Cuba in 1959 due to the Communist revolt. It sports a toothy, oily, Habana 2000 wrapper that conceals a Honduran binder and a mix of Dominican, Honduran, Nicaraguan, Mexican, and Costa Rican tobaccos. Together, these leaves create an incredible complexity, offering cocoa-like flavors, hints of pepper and a smooth, yet semi-robust, finish. Medium to full-bodied, Toraño Exodus Gold 1959 is a must try for all enthusiasts.
