AJ Fernandez is becoming one of the hottest names in the cigar industry. His impressive blends that make up the Man O' War, Diesel, Morro Castle, and 5 Vegas Triple-A is leaving all his competitors behind. Finally, with San Lotano he not only gets to add another notch to his already impressive list he gets to revive his name sake!
San Lotano dates back to Cuba's pre-Castro era where the brand was among the most popular with traditional Cuban cigar makers. Retired for decades, the line is reintroduced by Fernandez whose grandfather first started the brand in San Luis, Cuba.
For those of you haven't tried the Oval shape, it is best explained as being a rounded box-press. This rare shape not only looks and feels unique, but it also makes for a cool, slow-burning experience loaded with flavor. The Oval Connecticut uses a core of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and proprietary long-fillers, and finishes it off with a silky Connecticut wrapper. Expect a mild to medium-bodied profile to deliver nutty, leathery, and cedar nuances growing more intense with each billowy puff. This delicious cigar is a new addition to our humidor and needs to be a new addition in yours!
