L’Atelier Selection Speciale is well on its way to being an instant classic. Using a similar formula as its 94 rated older brother, this is sure to send you right on your way to stogie nirvana! Once again using the finest tobaccos from the legendary Oliva Tobacco Company and manufactured in the famed My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua these beauties make their presence known from first light and hold it with ease until the final draw.
Selection Speciale uses the same mold-resistant hybrid wrapper as the initial L’Atelier. Dubbed Sancti Spiritus, higher primings are utilized in this Criollo and Pelo de Oro splice to promote a headier, full-bodied experience. Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder make up the meat, adding subtle notes of caramel, espresso and a long lasting spice through the finish. To bring out all Selection Speciale has to offer, pair it with red wine or even dark rum.
L'Atelier Selection Speciale received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "Its solid core of cocoa and earth is balanced by notes of black pepper, toast and salted nuts. A pleasant smoke."
