    The Signature 1959 is a big disappointment in several ways. My number of experiences were so bad that it turned me off to the line. However, someone just bought me a CT Virtuoso and has given me new hope for the line.

    My apologies, Silver Edition 1959 not the Signature.

    Also one of my favorite cigars. The aroma of the Criolla wrapper on a warm summer’s eve is like magic. I have spent many a wonderful after-dinner smoke nubbing one of these. Brock is very right on about the humidity sensitivity; if the CT Silver gets too hot, it goes beyond acidic and bitter to truly nasty. Best sipped, not huffed.

    This cigar was a disappointment from the very beginning. The smoke was poor, it didn’t burn properly, there was virtually no aroma in the smoke and the smoke was hollow throughout the entire cigar. I would recommend this to anyone who would just as soon stack money in a pile and burn it.

    It had been in a professional humidor for at least a couple of weeks and was then transferred to my 70% humidor for four days. I thought the cigar felt dry and was expecting harsh smoke but the smoke it produced was virtually useless. It wasn’t until the end that I finally had some real smoke but by this time, it had become bitter and was not pleasureable. I will definately avoid this cigar in the future. Don’t waste your money.

    I think that a lot of mild and medium cigars get unfair, bad reviews simply because certain people do not know how to smoke them. They smoke some Pepin Garcia Bombs or RP Edges all day, then are disappointed with fine medium bodied cigars like the CT 1959 Silver Edition.

    While the Torano Signature are my favorites, the Exodus Silver are a decent blend. My only beef with the Silver is that they tend to have fragile wrappers or try to explode while I’m trying to smoke them. But, that’s life.

    I like the para ordinance better–If that is what the hand gun is–looks like one– Not a bad cigar but is a little mild though! Still a good smoke

    That’s an unusual way to cut cigar caps… with a 1911!

    When cutting your cigar, keep your weapon pointed down range, and be aware of what’s beyond your cigar…

    Thanks for the review! I’ve had several Silver Edition 1959 and was not disappointed.

    I have to agree with ROTHNH – this is a fine medium-bodied cigar. I’m not generally a fan of Criolla wrappers, but I like the Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 Silvers.

    What’s with the guns? Am I missing something?

    Interesting how an earlier comment touts this as unbeatable (on a summer’s evening), and others, well, not so much. Cigars are like wine that way.

    Nice review though.

    Completely agree with your review, well done. What most people don’t know is that the Criollo leaf is one of the most finicky and difficult to deal with for rollers so the fact that these cigars are constructed as well as they are is testament to the quality that the Toranos strive for. In my humble opinion, Criollo wrapped cigars are some of the best on the market. The flavors aren’t in your face, but they are present and in my experience have ALWAYS been very pleasant. I personally love this cigar and will keep my humi stocked with them.

    I am working my way through a Torano sampler pack. The Exodus Silver was pretty much just as you described it but can be had for cheaper if purchased online. Really nice burn. Mild yet interesting flavors. Did not find this cigar to be much different in flavor from the Casa Torano blend, though the latter can turn bitter toward the end or if smoked too quickly.

    Either the naysayers are Pseudo Intellectuals as Spiro Agnew would say, or they got a bad batch. Frankly I’ve found these smokes to be flawless – consistent burn & not so complex where you would be disappointed. An All Around excellent no surprise smoke. Truly box-worthy and a regular go to smoke when you simply don’t want to spend 30 minutes tring to decide just what the hell you want to choose to smoke. Giddy-up!

    I have a box of the Silver Edition Grand Churchills and they are superb – the construction is beautiful, but yes, they are fragile. Treat them gingerly and they’ll reward you with a terrific smoking experience.

    My Review of the Carlos Torano Silver Series Toro

    The Carlos Torano Exodus Silver is a very interesting blend. In fact I would go as far to say that there is not a cigar out there that tastes like this cigar. This blend is one of the more unique blends that I can recall. Guys that smoke mostly Cuban have often commented that they like this cigar. I think there is some of the cigar’s earthiness that is similar to what you get in some Habanos.

    This particular Toro has a darker brown wrapper than what I seen in this cigar before. Aside from that the wrapper is not veiny and is very oily.

    After a light, I find that the cigar draws well, but is a little too tight for a punch, so I clip off the head instead.

    As I make my way through the cigar I notice that it burns fairly even and holds a firm ash. The stick is medium in strength but full in body.

    Throughout the smoke I pick up toasted nuts and a woodiness that is the unique part of the blend, kinda like hickory. There is not a lot of spice but this is a good full-flavored cigar. Some of the guys I know love to age these, so I may have try putting one away for a while.

    In my humble opinion the Silver Edition 1959 are perfectly rolled, burn very good, create lots of smoke, but simply lack flavours. Its a little bit like Torano forgot to use one of the tobaccos in the blend. Its strange how different they are to the gold edition.
