San Lotano Oval Cigars
If ever there was an ergonomic cigar, it’s the AJ Fernandez San Lotano Oval. Half-pressed and profiled, the Oval is named for its ovular head, its flat body and its rounded edges which allow the cigar to sit very comfortably in the mouth. It is manufactured by AJ Fernandez, who has been manufacturing third-party brands for some time.
Fernandez eventually diversified and launched the San Lotano line in 2010, which owes its name to the brand of his family in Cuba before the revolution. Its factory is located in Estelí.
In 2011, Fernandez launched the unique San Lotano oval, which takes into account both function and shape. The robust flavors are illustrated by a Habano 2000 cape from Ecuador, combined with a leathery and woody blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco that leaves a pleasant aftertaste of dried cherry.
