LAtelier El Suelo
That is, when you take into account who’s making them and how they’ve been received.
L’Atelier is a collaboration between Tatuaje’s Pete Johnson et al. as blenders and My Father cigars, as makers. With a pedigree like that, it’s really hard to miss the mark. So far, Cigar Aficionado has already gone all in to certify that yes, these are really good cigars. They’ve awarded the brand a few marks in the 90s, including a 95 for La Mission.
L’Atelier El Suelo cigar is a bit more humble than that, though.
The name translates to “the soil.” To us, this isn’t just a reference to the literal dirt that the tobacco plants are raised out of. It also reminds us that a fine cigar is for pretty much anyone. We’ve always been surprised to find that it’s not just fat cats picking up a really good smoke. Instead, we get orders from pretty much everyone for luxury cigars. It’s just one of those things that people treat themselves to, especially as an end of workweek pleasure.
So the soil is a reminder of all the normal folks that buy our cigars and that make up our whole Cigars Direct team. We’re not just out here for people who have money to burn. We’re out here for anyone who’s earned a good escape. The L’Atelier El Suelo cigar probably isn’t an everyday smoke, but it can definitely be a nice way to unwind every now and then.
On the outside, you’ll see a gorgeous rosy brown Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Then, inside, there’s a Nicaraguan binder holding together a Nicaraguan and American long-filler blend. That’s right, there’s a little Connecticut broadleaf, right in the filler! This thing is definitely a creature of the soil.
The L’Atelier El Suelo cigar has classic flavors that are highly satisfying: pepper, cedar, coffee, and maybe a bit of sweet black tea. It’s a premium smoke that anyone can enjoy.
