Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 '50 Years': Quick Review

This Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 '50 Years' is an older release that came my way via a Torano sampler I picked up a while back. You can still pick them up on the CI website by the box of 10 for $59.95

It's covered by a stout, toothy, oscuro colored wrapper that has only the finest of veins. There's a big blast of cocoa from the foot and the free cold draw is cocoa and spice.

Once it's set on fire all you can taste is bold full bodied chocolate up front. As the burn line moves up the cigar a bit of spice shows up followed by coffee, oak, earth, charcoal and sweet cream. It finishes with my favorite flavor mix of burnt mocha.

If you like chocolate bombs this would be a cigar to try. What it lacks in complexity, it makes up for with big, bold flavors, a great burn and a 60 minute smoking time.
