AJ FERNANDEZ SAN LOTANO MADURO
WRAPPER: San Andres BINDER: Honduras FILLER: Nicaragua/Honduras
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 cigar 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 Maduro features a dark, oily wrapper from the San Andrés Valley that is gorgeous. These dark box-pressed beauties are full of flavor though medium in body. They’re a smooth smoke expertly blended to allow cigar fans to taste each and every nuance in the complex yet subtle blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long fillers. The burn is razor sharp, producing thick clouds of white creamy smoke with hints of cocoa, espresso and spice. They also have a nice slow burn and long finish to allow your palate to savor each and every flavorful pull. Another masterpiece by AJ Fernandez, the man many refer to as “The Artist”.
