The San Lotano cigar dates back to pre-Castro Cuba; since its inception by A.J. Fernandez’s grandfather, the cigar has experienced its fair share of tribulations with the passage of time. Yes, the originator may have been forced to retire his beloved blend when he was forced to leave his country, but the San Lotano cigar lives on!
As homage to his family, A.J. Fernandez has recently brought back the family recipe in three distinct styles: Maduro, Habano and Connecticut. Now, cigar enthusiasts can discover what it’s like to smoke a classic Cuban in the body-strength of their choice.
The San Lotano Maduro is perfect – the definition of a medium-bodied cigar. Immediately, you’ll be drawn to the stunning dark, oily, San Andrés Valley wrapper, which sits around a Honduran binder and an elegant mix of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. With the very first draw, notes of cocoa, espresso and spice create the base for a complex flavor profile that is mouthwateringly complimented by notes of black pepper and a sweet earthiness. The balance is impeccable. What’s more, the smooth, creamy smoke and slow burn will captivate with each savory draw. For fans of a medium-bodied maduro, this unique blend is calling your name.
