Tatuaje will put a variety of L’Atelier cigars “on hiatus” in an attempt to “streamline” the brand’s offerings according to a notice made to stores today.

This will include the entire L’Atelier Maduro and Identité lines as well as two LAT Selection Spéciales, the LAT Lancero and three of the existing seven sizes of La Mission de L’Atelier: 1955 (6 3/4 x 44), 1982 (6 1/8 x 52) and 2003 (6 1/4 x 48).


The L’Atelier Selection Spéciale 38 Special and Selection Spéciale LAT Torpedo are also being placed on hiatus. So too is the LAT Lancero.

In a letter sent to retailers, Pete Johnson—Tatuaje’s founder—said that the L’Atelier Maduro has not been produced in over a year and is already out of stock. The other cigars will continue to be sold until the existing inventory is sold.

Johnson refrained from using the word “discontinued” and mentioned that the cigars could return at some point in the future. He specifically indicated that the two lanceros are likely to be included in a new release of the Tatuaje Lancero Collection.
