One of the big stories of the IPCPR 2016 in Las Vegas: Jack is back. Jack Torano is back with the Torano Family Cigar Co., and with his return the entire Torano portfolio received a packaging overhaul.
Sold in 20 count boxes, the Exodus is available in 4 vitolas; The Torpedo (5-3/4x52), Robusto (5x54), Toro Grande (5-1/2x58), and the Gigante (6x60).

Check out my video review here:
The nose on the Torano Exodus is overwhelmingly cedar with a hint of spices underneath. The foot is very subdued, I’m not able to nose anything other than tobacco.
I used my Xikar v-cutter and found the draw to be in the ideal zone.
The first opens with huge chocolate soufflé notes. The retrohale also has some cocoa to it with some trailing rich spices. At the five minute mark the flavor profile has the chocolate soufflé drop off with some soft cedar, and citrus notes. The citrus reminds me of a subtle mix of orange and grapefruit. On the retrohale the citrus is more prominent. At the twenty minute mark an undercurrent of spearmint is detectable. At the 30 minute mark there are hints of powdered cocoa with the spearmint falling into the background.
At the 45 minute mark the middle third has settled in with the cedar dominating the profile at a medium strength. On the retrohale I get that spearmint with hints of cocoa.
As the Torano Exodus moves into the last third I get some sweetness that starts to counter the cedar. Once the final third settles in, there are some baking spices along with some earthiness on the post draw, mixed in with some biting pepper.
The Torano Exodus is a solid performer that is going to please a lot of Torano fans.
