A nice little spicy stick, right here. The Brazilian Habano wrapper gives it a small kick, and the Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers round out the rich blend. Fire it up for classic flavors of leather, wood, and spice. But whatever you do, don’t do any writing around this one – it’s kind of cursed in that department.
You see, this cigar has the wrong name.
It was never meant to be called the San “Lotano,” with an “o.” The whole thing is a simple misunderstanding. It’s not clear who made the mistake, but A.J. Fernandez wanted a cigar named San Lutano, with a “u.” That’s what people from his hometown in San Luis, Cuba are called: Lutanos. The stick was supposed to be an homage to his family history and birthplace, but something got messed up with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and A.J. just let it be.
The struggles of translation, folks.
Not only was the cigar named for his hometown, it was also once the name of a family cigar brand. His grandfather rolled up San Lutanos (spelling?) generations ago in Cuba. We’d love to have smoked those, but until our time machine is done, we’ll have to work with what we’re given – a delicious cigar.
