This cigar was sent to me ​by the Smoking Greek as a part of his 13 for 2013 giveaway.

Nose:

Picked up some spicy pepper, a rich tobacco mixed with some sweet barnyard. ​

Construction:

The L'Atelier LAT54 is a 5 5/8" 54 ring gauge robusto cigar blended by Pete Johnson.  Flawless construction with a nice smooth wrapper.  The cap is tightly bound with a triple cap and a pig tail.

Flavor:

First

The first few draws and I picked up loads of sweet tobacco.  After a few draws I was able to detect a heavy nut flavor with an after taste that I could best describe as BBQ meat.  A very interesting first third.​

Middle

The middle is a more balanced experience of the same flavors I picked up in the first.  Very smooth through the entire middle third.​

Final

Again, more of the same flavors and it makes for a very enjoyable experience.​

Burn/Draw:

The burn was excellent and the draw hit the mark.   Total smoking time was just over an hour, but I think I was smoking it quite fast.​

Value:

Singles of the LAT 54 will ​cost you about $9.  5-packs are consistently at the $40 mark.  A box of 15 is at the $120 mark.  At this price point you're getting a great stick that they could easily charge $10 - $12 for.

Final Word:

The L'Atelier LAT54 is a well balanced cigar that is between the medium and full bodied range for cigar strength.  If you enjoy a heavier cigar you really can't go wrong with the LAT 54 as it delivers impeccably balanced flavors from beginning to nub.​  Thank you to the Smoking Greek for giving me the opportunity to review this great stick.​
