The 94 rated L’Atelier has received a Limited Edition makeover and is now available at Emerson’s Cigars. The L’Atelier “SEC” is a 6×50 Toro that features a never before seen box-press for the L’Atelier line. In addition to being box-pressed, the SEC uses a higher priming of the Sancti Spiritus wrapper leaf, giving the cigar a bump in strength over it’s regular production counterpart. The production run for this cigar is 500 boxes and has been distributed amongst 20 L’Atelier retail accounts located in the Southeastern US. Available in 15 count boxes the L’Atelier SEC is produced at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua.
The “SEC” name L’Atelier chose for this project seems to serve a bit of double meaning. Not only are most shops receiving the cigar located in the Southeastern US, where most of the Southeastern Conference(SEC) in college football is located, it also is a term used in the wine industry to describe sweetness of a wine. L’Atelier owner Pete Johnson’s love for all things wine can easily be seen in other projects he has done with L’Atelier as well as his other brand Tatuaje.
