CUSTOMER REVIEWS(0 reviews)|
A.J. Fernandez’s San Lotano is a line of cigars that has been a long time coming. Fernandez’s grandfather produced a popular Cuban cigar by the same name that 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 has been reintroduced by A.J. and is made entirely by hand in the Tabacalera Fernandez factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, under his watchful eye.
As a third generation cigar maker, born in Cuba, Fernandez 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 unrivaled reputation among cigar enthusiasts. As AJ puts it “San Lotano has been a project many years in the making for me, and it is made to honor the tradition of cigar making that I learned from my father and my father’s father. The blends are extremely rich, flavorful and are the culmination of my family’s knowledge which has been accumulated over the last century.” And honor them he does with his new San Lotano blends.
Known mainly for medium to full-bodied cigars, AJ delivers a refreshing change with his new San Lotano Connecticut. It’s mild-medium bodied, but overflowing with abundant flavor and complexity, this San Lotano is elegant, refined, and very enjoyable. Bursting with premium, well-aged Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers, all embraced by a rich Honduran binder. The ensemble is dressed in a silky smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper. The end result is a flavorful and smooth experience that can be enjoyed any time of day. You’ll experience notes of cream, nuts and, wood, with a creamy-smooth finish. The A.J. Fernandez San Lotano Connecticut is mild enough for starting the day off with, but also flavorful enough to be the perfect ending as well.
