San Lotano Oval has taken the cigar industry by storm. The blend has been sizzling hot: receiving multiple 90+ ratings, named #2 cigar of the year in Cigar Journal, and has been engulfed by staggering amounts of buzz. If you have yet to try one, trust me when I say the hype is real, and the cigars deliver as advertised. Now enter the next chapter in the Oval saga, the Oval Maduro.
Picking up right where Oval left off, the Oval Maduro uses the same exquisite fillers, and binder, but now comes draped in an enticing Connecticut Broadleaf maduro. This dark leaf shimmers with oily goodness, and conceals the Oval’s balanced and refined core of Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. This time around, expect an uber-smooth and balanced smoke, containing more predominant notes of coffee bean, leather, cocoa and pepper backed by a long and hearty finish. This sequel my friends is a rarity, and is as good, if not better than the original.
