AJ FERNANDEZ SAN LOTANO HABANO
WRAPPER: Brazilian Habano BINDER: Nicaragua FILLER: Nicaragua/Honduras/Dominican Republic
A.J. Fernandez is a third generation cigar maker, born in Cuba, who is well known for being one of the only cigar makers in the industry to still use many of the oldest Cuban traditions and secrets that have earned him an unmatched reputation among cigar enthusiasts.
The rich history of San Lotano cigars dates back to Cuba’s pre-Castro era where the brand was among the most popular with traditional Cuban cigar makers. The retired line is being reintroduced by A.J. Fernandez whose grandfather first started the brand in his hometown of San Luis, Cuba. San Lotano is made entirely by hand in the Tabacalera Fernandez factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, and is available in three exciting variations including Habano, Connecticut and Maduro wrappers.
The San Lotano Habano is the personification of what a full-bodied cigar should be, bold and flavorful, yet smooth and refined, this is one amazing cigar. Blended using a magnificent combination of lush Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Dominican tobaccos, the Habano is anything but boring. Complementing the intricate blend is an exceptionally rare Brazilian-grown Habano wrapper which is available to only two manufacturers in the world. Together, the unique wrapper and fillers create a perfect combination of flavor, body, and complexity. Once lit, your palate will enjoy subtle hints of wood, nuts, and spice. The burn is slow and point-on, with an easy draw, provides lots of velvety smooth smoke and has a nice long finish. This blend has something for everybody and with its three different variations, it will become a star in every well-stocked humidor.
