TOP 25 OF 2012 | RANK: 25

Tasting Note: 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.

His factory is located in Estelí.  (more…)
