Few cigar makers are as in demand as AJ ’Abdel’ Fernandez these days. Looking at his impressive portfolio of top-notch blends, it’s easy to understand why. Take for instance his already impressive portfolio boasting the likes of Man O’ War, Diesel, Morro Castle, and 5 Vegas Triple-A - all winners, no doubt. AJ’s highly successful blends are indicative of his ferocious passion and deep seeded desire for perfection.
But now, AJ has taken his craft to another level with the first major release bearing his name, San Lotano by AJ Fernandez. A truly complete ensemble, the San Lotano collection offers something that everyone can rejoice in. Ranging from mild to full, the new San Lotano line is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
The Maduro variety of San Lotano features a dark, oily San Andres maduro wrapper balanced by a blend of premium Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. The end result is a luxurious experience as rich, chocolatey, slightly sweet, and creamy flavors are delivered through billowy layers of thick, flavorful smoke. Medium in body, but loaded with flavor the San Lotano Maduro is dee-lish. And for added intrigue, I've heard quite a few accounts that mention San Lotano Maduro's eerie resemblance to Padron Anniversary. I don't disagree.
