L’Atelier had plenty to offer at this year’s show, in fact they seemed to have they most new releases in the My Father booth. Front and center was the new Surrogates cigar, Satin Glove, which is a 7″ x 47 box-pressed Churchill. The cigar will be marketed generously at just under $9 and will feature a Mexican San Andres wrapper, something that seems to be quite the trend this year.
Fans of smaller cigars will be pleased to see L’Atelier’s new 4 1/2″ x 38 5-pack offerings. Reminiscent of 2012’s Liga Privada Papas Fritas, the new vitolas offer a premium cigar smoking experience in a whole new format. The 5-packs will feature the L’Aterlier Travailleurs, Surrogates Cracker Crumbs, Trocadero Ruelles, and El Suelo Vuelos. It was mentioned that the brand is looking to bring the premium Sancti Spíritus leaf used on many of L’Atelier’s cigars to the masses, with the smaller vitolas being being priced at $14.50 per 5-pack.
Rounding out the heap of new releases were 2 new sizes for the L’Atelier Selection Spéciale cigars, featuring a 7 1/2″ x 38 LAT 38 Selection Spéciale and a 6 1/8″ x 52 LAT Selection Spéciale Torpedo; as well as the new L’Atelier Extension de la Racine ER14, which uses the same blend as last year’s ER13, changing the size to a 6 1/8″ x 52 Torpedo.
