The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2012

San Lotano Oval Corona

25

If ever there was an ergonomic cigar, the San Lotano Oval is it. Semi-pressed and contoured, the Oval is named for its ovular head, flat body and dramatically rounded edges that allow the cigar to sit very comfortably in the mouth. It’s made by A. J. Fernandez, who has been making third-party brands for quite some time. Fernandez eventually branched out on his own and started the San Lotano line in 2010, which he says is named for his family’s brand in Cuba before the revolution. His factory is located in Estelí. In 2011, Fernandez brought the unique San Lotano Oval to market, taking into consideration both function and form.

The robust flavors are informed by a Habano 2000 wrapper from Ecuador combined with a leathery, woody-tasting blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco that leaves a pleasant, dried-cherry aftertaste.
