This is an old review that somehow never got posted when it should have been uploaded.
I bought this 5×52 San Lotano Maduro robusto before they were introduced to The Netherlands, so it must have been right after they came to the American market.
The smooth, dark and oily wrapper looks great and the ring is nice. I smell hay and the cold draw is easy with flavors of raisin and pepper.
I taste a full coffee flavor, mild spicy with some citrus on the background and pepper in the aftertaste. After two centimeter I taste cinnamon with wood, herbs and pepper, the coffee and citrus are gone.
Halfway I taste wood with herbs, spices and pepper. Green herbs with wood, nice and spicy. After two thirds its more cinnamon and nutmeg, herbs, pepper and wood.
This cigar lasted me an hour and twenty minutes. The draw was great and I got a lot of thick smoke. The pepper and salt colored ash is not too firm. The burn is great. I would call this cigar full flavored and full bodied.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, I loved this cigar
