Founded by Pete Johnson (Tatuaje) in 2012, this 2013 release highlights how quickly they have ascended the cigar ranks. At first glance you will be enticed by the rich deep chocolate brown wrapper. It has a silky sheen with prominent lines. I really enjoy the simple yet sophisticated band on this cigar. The gold border with gold and silver leaves just sets up nicely against the wrapper. Oh the smells! So sweet with cocoa it’s indulgent. The cold draw is sweet and spicy.
Overall a fantastic cigar that proves even though L’Atelier Imports is a newer cigar company, through superb construction and carefully planned flavors that pay homage to the Behike, they have crafted a superb cigar. I would highly recommend this cigar for anyone looking to kick back relax after a hard day. The creamy smooth cocoa and spices are sure to melt the day away. Be sure to pick up a few of these cigars as you will most definitely want to smoke more than one.
