L'Atelier = the workshopWhat do you get when you take Pete Johnson, his brother, add a couple of friends to the mix, and make a cigar? Answer - L'Atelier. Blended by Pete Johnson, and hand-crafted in Pepin's My Father Factory, each cigar shows up to the big stage well prepared. Dressed to impress, each L'Atelier comes cloaked in a bold new wrapper leaf known as 'Sancti Spiritus' - a hybrid of Criollo and Pelo de Oro. Grown in the misty valleys of Ecuador, this beautiful leaf boasts a wonderful aroma, and houses a rich core of Nicaraguan long-fillers. Together, this recipe strikes up medium to full-bodied, containing meaty notes of spice, cedar, earth, dried fruit, and a long hearty finish. The cherry on top is a beautiful pigtail cap. L'Atelier received Humidor Selection honors and several top ratings, including two 92-point scores and a 94-point head-turner, which noted: "The burn and draw are superb on this beautifully balanced cigar. Notes of chocolate and wood build on the palate before taking on touches of vanilla and earthy truffle."
Not a bad smoke! Good for everyday.
Construction of this cigar is excellent... smooth hybrid Ecuador wrapper, firm to the touch, seams and cap very well constructed. First puff of smoke revealed a creamy coffee and chocolate flavors throughout, with a smooth, medium finish. Half way through the smoke I get some smooth cedar and leather notes, medium body. At the finish, medium body with creamy coffee flavors, long finish. Good burn. A great afternoon or dessert smoke... One of the best I have ever had. Highly recommended. Should appeal to a broad audience.
Very good cigar well deserving of it's high rating.....would smoke it anytime, not to full just right.
