San Lotano Oval Maduro Short Cigar Review

I received this cigar from Cigars Direct; as always, all reviews are my own.

Wrapper: Maduro Especial    |   Binder: Nicaraguan   |   Filler: Nicaraguan & Honduras   |   Box of 20: $139.00; Single: $8.20   |   Robusto   |   5″ x 52

San Lotano Oval
There’s actually a band below the San Lotano Oval band that says “MADURO” but that wasn’t on the AJ Fernandez website.

0/3: It’s a pretty flat looking cigar with bowed out sides (hence, the “oval”) with a smooth and oily dark wrapper. I have previously reviewed the San Lotano Oval and the San Lotano Maduro; both were good cigars.

1/3: Wonderfully dark flavor profile in the beginning. Earth, dark sweetness and general goodness.

2/3: Dirt, in a good way, plays a pretty big role during this third. Creamy texture. The dark sweetness takes a little step back.

3/3: The flavors coalesce into a good mixture of the flavors I’ve already mentioned. It’s still interesting.

4/3: Medium bodied with a good draw and burn; this cigar doesn’t really have any drawbacks but it’s not overly impressive either. All of the flavors were good but they didn’t pop either. It’s pleasant, which is a plus but it isn’t enough.

3.5 points – Solid cigar that most everyone will like but won’t love
