Once you taste a L'Atelier cigar, it wouldn't matter if it was rolled by a cave dwelling, three-eyed torcedor with dirty hands and a drooling problem. Fortunately, instead of coming from persons and parts unknown, the Miami-based L'Atelier Imports company from which it hails is the latest venture of blend-master Pete Johnson, one-half of the reason Tatuaje and Cabaiguan cigars are so highly prized. The other half of that equation is Jose 'Don' Pepin and he's involved here too, with his My Father Cigars factory producing each of the three Cuban-inspired vitolas. Could it get any better? Yes, since the Oliva-grown Ecuadorian leaf that caps Pete's wickedly flavorful mix of Nicaraguan tobaccos is the new 'Sancti Spiritus', a hybrid of Criollo and Pelo de Oro.
This exclusive wrapper is finished with a pig-tailed head of classic style and is carefully selected and aged to offer just the right amount of exotic spice and buttery smoothness in an already expertly balanced smoke. Each vitola in the L'Atelier line individually holds ratings in the 90s, so you can't go wrong when deciding on which to try. Medium in strength but with a depth of flavor unavailable in many other brands, the L'Atelier should be at the top of the to-try list for casual and hardcore smoker alike. Try it with a Chai tea and your favorite chair.
