Tasting Notes

San Lotano Requiem Maduro

Prelight

My San Lotano Requiem Maduro is a gentle box-pressed beautiful dark-brown stick. The box-press is so perfect to hold and the wrapper feels furry, almost velvety to the touch.
This wrapper is oily. You can tell from just the look of it. Seams are visible and the double cap is neat. There is a bit of tooth but nothing too drastic.
The cold draw gives off notes of chocolate, warm spice, and earth

First Third

My San Lotano Requiem Maduro opens with a whole lot of pepper and spice. There are billowy clouds of thick aromatic smoke. The draw is perfect and so is the burn.Aside from the pepper, this cigar does not gradually build. It says it’s a medium body and you will feel it from the get-go.

I felt the oily wrapper on my lips, a little tingling at the back of my throat thanks to the spice, and generally tons of silky-smooth delicious smoke. More intricate nuances included chocolate cream, earth, caramel, toasted nuts, and a little dry cocoa.
Honestly, the first few draws pack a punch but that is AJ Fernandez signature delivery. Soon the stogie settles into a luxurious stage where you can catch all the subtle nuances.

Middle

As my cigar settles into the mid third, the pepper and spice notes move from the front of the palate to the back. Chocolate, cream, coffee, and nuts take over the front of the palate.
The burn is still perfect and the sturdy salt and pepper ash falls in thirds. Strength is a strong medium.Retrohale presents shy notes of espresso, caramel and an implicit sweetness. A mix of premium tobacco and thick earthy tones hold down the fort. I totally love the slight peppery earth long-finish that stays on until the next draw.

Final Third

At this point, I can honestly say that while this cigar does not transition intrinsically, it has enough complexity and depth to stay interesting.
The final third opens with premium tobacco and rich earthy tones taking over the front of the palate. Chocolate cream, mocha, and cinnamon spice stay shy at the back of the palate and in the Retrohale.

Strength is still a good medium but flavours are full-blown. Smoke output is phenomenal and so is the burn line.
Towards the nub there is a kick in sweet chocolate and cream notes as the tobacco and earthy tones zoom out. In my book, this is a dee-lish ending to an exceptional cigar. My San Lotano Requiem Maduro Robusto smoked for about an hour and a half.

How is the San Lotano Requiem Maduro Priced?

The San Lotano Requiem Maduro sells for between $7 and $10 depending on the size.
This price, in my opinion, is a steal compared to the value of this cigar. Cigar connoisseurs who love Maduro cigars know how expensive a good Maduro can get. This baby is all flavour and kick with a good price to boot.
Honestly, there are tons of other cigars at this price point or higher which cannot hold a candle to this Maduro.

Is this the best in the San Lotano Series?

There is no doubt that this is an outstanding cigar.
That said, as far as comparing it to the other San Lotano cigars; I think this is a matter of opinion. The San Lotano Series features cigars with varied strengths, blends, and wrappers. This series was created to cater to every type of cigar smoker.

In my book, though, this is the best San Lotano cigar. CigarAficionado gave this stogie a 92 which indicates that he agrees with me.
Overall, the San Lotano Series is remarkable and you should try all of them starting with the San Lotano Requiem Maduro.
