Cigar Review: Toraño Exodus 1959 Finite 2013 Toro

4 Mar 2014

When a cigar company ventures off its familiar path, there’s almost always great interest. For Davidoff, that was apparent when it turned to Nicaragua for a new line. For Toraño, what’s different with the Finite is limiting the origin of ingredients to a single country.finitelogo

Torano-Finite-2013The Toraño Family Cigar Co. doesn’t usually turn out puros. The company has long been known for its blending, combining tobacco from numerous countries. The flagship Exodus 1959 Gold, for example, is almost a mini-United Nations, sporting leaves from five countries.

Not this time. For the limited-release Finite, it’s Nicaragua for the filler, binder, and wrapper. Of course, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t quite a bit of blending involved. The three-size line utilizes different tobacco from various regions, strains, and primings.

According to Toraño, there was only enough of the tobacco to roll 75,000 cigars. Each box of 25 is date-stamped, a practice Toraño says it will continue to do for future limited editions.

The Toro, a 6.25-inch stick with a ring gauge of 52, retails for $8.50. The BFC (6 x 60) is $9.50 and the Robusto (4.9 x 52) is $8.

In what seems to be a continuing Toraño trend, the Finite has a foot band (displaying the infinity symbol). The regular band follows the Exodus style, with a purple background.

As you’d expect from a Nicaraguan puro, the Finite kicks off with pepper. It’s pleasant, but not overpowering, and the cigar quickly becomes a balanced, complex smoke with some fruity sweetness layered in. You’ll find other flavors and spices throughout, from cedar to cocoa. The strength is somewhere in the medium to full range.

I would have liked a little more smoke production. Construction, burn, and draw are excellent in each of the three I smoked. I prefer the Toro to the single Robusto I tried because there’s greater development and flavor variation.

I’ve always been a Toraño fan and this cigar is a great example of why I feel that way. Don’t miss it. I rate the Finite four stogies out of five.
