Episode 407 San Lotano The Bull Robusto


BACKGROUND: San Lotano “The Bull,” is being positioned as a fuller version of the company’s San Lotano line. The cigar uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, which are both grown on the company’s farms in Nicaragua.


The Bull is a box-pressed cigar and AJ Fernandez had this to say about it: “We don’t make many box-pressed cigars since San Lotano has become fairly synonymous for our trademark Oval shape. [But] that’s the secret to San Lotano The Bull. Half the influence of the smoke comes from the shape, the other half from the blend.”


The cigar is offered in three sizes: a 6 x 54 Toro ($9.85), a 6 1/2 x 54 Torpedo ($9.95) and the cigar I’m featuring today the 5 x 54 Robusto ($9.60).
