A beautiful new endeavor from Pete Johnson of Tatuaje fame, the L’Atelier is a cubanesque cigar blended by Johnson and rolled in the prolific My Father Factory, ran by Jose “Don Pepin” Garcia. The cigar is buttery smooth, with a gorgeous new wrapper from Ecudaor. The cigar has notes of cedar, vanilla, and even some cherry. The “Sancti Spiritus” wrapper is named for the famed province in Cuba, from with “Don Pepin” Garcia hails. This stick pairs well with a nice scotch and even a hoppy beer such as an IPA. The L’Atelier line also features a Maduro line as well as the Selection Speciale.
Wrapper: Sancti Spíritus Ecuador
