Customer Reviews of “San Lotano Oval”
“It seems almost everything gets vaguely labeled as medium-full, but this cigar defines the category for me. It's a clear step beyond medium, but not one of those ass-kicker full cigars. The extra step just brings rich flavor, but keeps the clean burn of milder cigars. Nice even burn too - I wondered how the oval would handle, and it performed well. I'm not sure if it burned quickly or if time just flies when you're enjoying a great smoke. Even the shape was much more comfortable in the hand than I would have expected. Highly recommend this one”

“This is my GO TO cigar! I am an AJ Fernandez fan, and he hit the ball out of the park with the San Lotano line.”

“The Oval is a superb cigar. Before lighting this cigar I smelled the wrapper. It honestly had the aroma of a sweet chocolate. It smokes smooth and toasty, chocolatey. It may cost a bit more, but it is definitely worth it. No harshness at all. As I inhale, the sweet aroma passes my nose with such a wonderful sweet toasty aroma. It was a delicious smell. Like someone had just ever so slightly burned chocolate. Will definitely buy this cigar. My mouth tastes like chocolate malt meal. I had no wrapper issues whatsoever. A+”

“I recently smoked a San Lotano Oval toro, and loved it so much that I ordered a full box. Unfortunately, like another reviewer, several of the cigars arrived with severe cracks at both the head and foot of the cigars. I'm sure that CI will make this right, but there appears to be some quality control issues with this cigar. Perhaps it is the unique oval shape that is causing the cigar to crack?”

“I had to buy a box of these unique shaped cigars when I saw them in the top 25 in Cigar Journal. Chocolatey with a mellow refined sweetness. Nicely balanced, a perfect draw and long finish. The wrapper is dark, leathery thick and chewy, however six of the cigars were damaged beyond smoking. CI was very cooperative in replacing them so I am very satisfied with this purchase as always.”

“I absolutely loved this cigar. Very smooth draw. Loaded with flavor. Definitely of my list of cigars I love.”

“In my opinion, the best cigar in AJ Fernandez portfolio. Great right of the truck, but if you have patience and you let them rest, Wow, you enter into another world. I love the robusto size. The shape and the way it feels in your hand is always consistent, the flavors are the closest I've come to smoking a Cuban cigar.”

“Bought this cigar after my brother in-law recommended it and WOW! This is definitely gonna be a staple in my humidor, I love the oval shape, the draw is smooth and the burn is consistent/even. Nice flavors, leathery & bold. Talking about it, I'm gonna smoke another one right now!”

“Can't understand why this cigar only received a 91 -- definitely a 96 plus: even consistency, good draw and the flavor is pleasant on the palete.”

“Double wow! A.J. has so many wonderful blends that he is beginning to rival Alec Bradley, in my eyes. San Lotano Oval is another winner. A bit milder than most other Fernandez offerings I have tried, but no less powerful in flavor. After cutting, I noticed the easy draw. Perhaps that is due to the irregular shape or it may be on purpose. Either way, it works. Clouds of smoke are emitted with every delicious puff. As a result, the stick burns rather quickly, which is a shame, since I want the experience to last. Finding a deal like the A.J. Fernandez sampler this came from, keeps the price down to a manageable level. So I will be looking for a deal on a quantity of these, as I do for many other over five bone blends, that I like to keep on hand. Thanks to CI, the opportunities keep coming & for that I am thankful. As for the Oval blend itself, I am hooked. Medium bodied, full flavored sticks are not all that common in my experience. Oval is that & a lot more. It smells fantastic, hosts a myriad of spices & goes great with a cup of expresso. Perfect for the 1st 'gar of the day & the next & the next. You get the idea.”

“This was my first Cigar I smoked and now I'm a 600 + a 150 humidor owner! All I can say is Wow, still today after a year plus it will all ways have a place in my humidor and a special place for a good friend who drops by! Ir you never tried it your missing out on a very smooth med full Cigar, you won't be disappointed that's a promise!”
