For close to 20 years, Tatuaje has delivered outstanding cigar after outstanding cigar. Their original brown label cigars nearly broke the industry when they debuted. For many it was the closest cigar one could get to a Cuban Montecristo (in the domestic market). The look, appearance, and flavor are all throwbacks to the world famous Montecristo No. 2. Every Tatujae cigar is made with the utmost care by Jose “Pepin” Garcia at his factories. Pete Johnson, the owner of Tatuaje Cigars, works hand-in-hand with Garcia to develop each new Tatuaje blend. Their relationship is tight, and Pete is often regarded as a member of the family. This strong bond is at the heart of every Tatuaje cigar. Each new cigar they blend and create together is unique and cubanesque. Each subsequent release brought more attention to the brand, and it has a devoted following that continues to drive the brand to new heights.
L'Atelier cigars - French for the workshop - are the flagship brand of L'Atelier Imports, a Miami-based cigar company founded by Pete Johnson (Tatuaje), his brother, and a couple friends. The cigars are rolled at My Father cigars in Nicaragua using a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos cloaked in a special Ecuadorian wrapper known as Sancti Spiritus, a Criollo/Pelo d'Oro hybrid grown by the Oliva Tobacco Company. The cigars offer a medium to medium-full experience, with full, complex flavors
