L’Atelier Imports has confirmed that its LAT Lancero has begun to ship as of Monday, delivering on a new size that has largely flown under the radar the past few months. News of the release came via the L’Atelier Imports Facebook page on Monday:

L'Atelier Lanceros

The company had been teasing the release since mid-February, though there has been little in the way of specifics released prior to Monday. Casper Johnson of L’Atelier confirmed that the cigars will come in 15-count boxes, adding that they will have an MSRP of $9.50 per cigar, or $142.50 per box. Each cigar measures 7 1/2 inches in length with a 38 ring gauge.

Like the rest of the LAT line, the LAT Lancero uses a Ecuadorian Sancti Spiritus wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. They are being made at My Father Cigars, S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.While they will be a smaller release compared to the rest of L’Atelier’s products, they will be offered year round and are slated to be in regular production.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
