L'Atelier LAT 38 Special Dirty Old Man Cigars cigar reviews
7 1/2 X 38
Sancti Spíritus Ecuador
Medium - Full

The L'Atelier LAT 38 Special is made at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli. The L'Atelier line is based on a new wrapper that was grown in Ecuador by Oliva. The wrapper is Sancti Spiritus, a hybrid of Criollo and Pelo de Oro. The 38 Special Selection Spéciale uses the highest priming Sancti Spiritus wrapper leafs.

This cigar has a very dark brown oily wrapper. A few small veins running the length and a pig tailed cap. Sweet tobacco, hay and a hint of a chocolate aroma come off the foot. Mild tobacco flavors on the pre-light draw.
The draw is very good providing tons of smoke. Mild tobacco with a bit of spice come on the draw. The oily finish has leather notes with a bit of pepper washing across my tongue. After a couple of inches, the pepper spice fades and is replaced by a mild earthy tobacco. The pepper on the finish is gone and is not as oily. The ash is holding for about a half inch at a time. At bout the half way point, a hint of sweetness comes on the draw and a bit of peppery earth comes on the finish. The strength kicks up to almost medium. No further changes the rest of the way.
The L'Atelier LAT 38 Special is a very good cigar. Great construction and performance. Perfect draw and burn down to the nub. Lanceros are one of my favorite vitolas and this one did not disappoint.
