A meticulously crafted maduro, San Lotano Requiem Maduro.
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 Requiem by AJ Fernandez. A truly complete ensemble, the San Lotano Requiem collection offers something that everyone can rejoice in. Ranging from mellow to full, the new San Lotano Requiem line is sure to satisfy even the most discerning of palates.
The Maduro variety of San Lotano Requiem 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, chocolaty, slightly sweet, and creamy flavors are delivered through billowy layers of thick, flavorful nuances. Medium in body, but loaded with flavor the San Lotano Requiem Maduro is dee-lish. And for added intrigue, I've heard quite a few accounts that mention San Lotano Requiem Maduro's eerie resemblance to Padron Anniversary. I don't disagree.
