La Mission du L'Atelier line of premium cigars was the brain-child of renowned cigar makers Pete Johnson and the Garcia family. While most are familiar with the more common Tatuajes, L’Atelier is the experimental arm of Pete’s portfolio, where he produces less traditional cigars. These cigars are made with a blend of Sancti Spiritus Nicaraguan tobacco for the filler and binder and a beautiful Maduro Mexican San Andrés wrapper. This combination of premium tobaccos creates a rich, complex flavor profile that is medium to full-bodied and well-balanced.
La Mission du L'Atelier cigars come in four sizes: 1959, which measures 4 3/4 x 52"; 1989, 5 5/8" x 54; 1999, 5 5/8" x 46; and 2009, 6 1/2" x 56. Each cigar represents a year where an achievement was accomplished by Chateau La Mission winery. They feature the distinctive La Mission band with a bold red design, box-pressing, and a pig-tailed cap. Hand-rolled at the Garcia factory in Nicaragua, these gems are a must-try for every cigar aficionado. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy a La Mission L'Atelier cigar today!
