L’Atelier Imports Selection Speciale
A beautiful lancero shaped cigar with a juicy looking, oily, very dark wrapper. Well balanced in the hand and solid to the touch. Once lit, a rich, full aroma with spicy dark chocolate notes filled the air. The burn was slow and even. The draw was smooth with a deliberate amount of resistance and provided a lot of dense, full-bodied smoke. This is a great cigar to sit back and relax with in an environment that allows you to appreciate the full and rich aroma. White peppery spices developed and built in strength as the cigar was smoked, but never overwhelmed the flavor. It had a nice black pepper taste that was noticeable when retro haling the smoke through the nose. The aroma was outstanding and the flavors were full, rich and balanced well with the spiciness and medium-full body. An outstanding cigar and blend overall.
