As we have done since we opened our premium cigar shop in Tallahassee, we continue to go after and bring in the hottest and most well received brands into our shop. After the Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill was named the cigar of thew year, we got it. We brought the Drew Estate Liga Undercrown in due to high public demand. The list goes on and on from Aging Room to Emilio Cigars to Oliverios. Now we have done it again with the San Lotano line by one of the hottest young blenders in the world A.J. Fernandez. Along with the San Lotano Connecticut, Maduro and Habano we have one of the most sought after cigars in the line the Oval.
The San Lotano Oval first made headlines due to its revolutionary shape. A box pressed circular shape that is best described as an oval. While the shape grabbed the early headlines, it is the quality construction, impeccable wrapper and wonderful flavors that has made the Oval a smash success. You can’t get this gem on-line so if you shop for top quality Tallahassee cigars, you have to stop by and pick up an Oval. Don’t believe us, read what others are saying.
From A Cigar Smoker’s Journal: The regular San Lotano Habano line is good, but the Oval is outstanding. Wonderfully rich and complex the cigar has a profile the pleases from the first light to the last exhale. The Oval instantly proclaims itself as a stick worthy of consideration for cigar of the year. Finding them on-line will be difficult as they are Brick & Mortar only.
Zach the Stogie Man: If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying this cigar yet, please do. It is a highly box-worthy cigar. Yes it has some burn issues, but the flavor will distract you enough that it should worry you too much. I give this cigar a 4.5 out of 5.
Nice Tight Ash: The slightly spicy start that ended up with a chocolatly sweet finish of a medium bodied cigar is a winner in my book. Overall a great smoke, that burns and draws great. With an array of flavors alot of people could enjoy, that each to their own aren’t overpowering. I highly recommend you trying a San Lotano Oval soon!
Stogie Guys: For such a well-composed combination of flavor and balance, I can do nothing but heartily recommend this cigar, which retails for around $10 and is available only in brick and mortar stores. That’s why the San Lotano Oval Pyramid earns four and a half stogies out of five.
Cigarmy: The San Lotano Oval is indeed a big hit for AJ Fernandez, and after smoking this one I can see why. It was a great cigar all around. The flavors were bold and pleasurable, and while they varied throughout the smoke, the profile was very consistent and harmonious. The burn and construction were flawless and provided a worry free smoking experience.
