The Toraño Exodus 1959 Finite 2013 is the fourth installment of Toraño Family Cigars’ Exodus line. As the name implies (i.e. “Finite”), this is a limited production cigar (i.e. only 75,000 cigars will be produced). The Finite 2013 becomes the first new cigar in this line in nearly four years. It is also the first Nicaraguan puro in the line – taking tobaccos from four growing regions of Nicaragua.

This cigar is a home run for Toraño – and one of the best cigars the company has produced. The cigar is highlighted by a raisin sweetness that morphs into a dry wine flavor in the second half. There are also notes of pepper, coffee, earth, even a grainy-like flavor. These flavors all very much have a “tobacco feel” to it. The flavors are robust and full-bodied. There is a little bit of kick to this cigar as I thought it was medium to full in strength. The construction is excellent.

This cigar is easily a box worthy cigar and I look forward to how it ages going forward.
