L'Atelier cigars - French for the workshop - are the flagship brand of L'Atelier Imports, a Miami-based cigar company founded by Pete Johnson (Tatuaje), his brother, and a couple friends. The cigars are rolled at My Father cigars in Nicaragua using a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos cloaked in a special Ecuadorian wrapper known as Sancti Spiritus, a Criollo/Pelo d'Oro hybrid grown by the Oliva Tobacco Company. The cigars offer a medium to medium-full experience, with full, complex flavors.

When I heard Pete Johnson was inspired by the Cohiba Behike, I had to give this one a burn. Looks exquisite out of the wrapper and is very well constructed. It took a minute to lit, but the burn was superb. A smooth creamy flavor that got heartier towards the back end. Not as full-bodied as the construction and smoke would suggest but well worth the price. Very good but not exceptional smoke.
