What’s old is what’s new for Toraño Cigars at the IPCPR. The brand showcased three popular legacy brands from the pre-General Cigar era which are making a return. These cigars include the Casa Toraño, the Toraño Exodus 1959 Gold Label, and the Toraño Exodus 1959 50 Years.
The packaging will be very similar to when these cigars were first released into commerce. The bands will remain similar although we were told the “Carlos Toraño” branding will change to simply “Toraño”. Each of the three legacy brands will now have a footer sleeve documenting the story of the Toraño family.
Since General had acquired the Toraño brands in 2014, these three blends had become dormant.
Casa Toraño is an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapped cigar over a blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and other Central American tobaccos.
Meanwhile, the Toraño Exodus 1959 Gold Label is an all-box-pressed offering. It is highlighted by a Nicaraguan wrapper.
Finally, Toraño Exodus 1959 50 Years also returns. This cigar is highlighted by a Brazilian Arapiraca Sungrown Maduro wrapper.
Meanwhile, Toraño continues to focus on its Vault Series, in which it has rolled out six blends over the past two years (Four Brick and Mortar and Two Catalog Exclusives). Two years ago, General Cigar had created a new Toraño Exodus, but that cigar has been discontinued.
