The La Mission L’Atelier cigars are produced in Nicaragua at the My Father Cigar factory for the Tatuaje. La Mision 1959 tells the story of the incredible shift in the balance of the cigar industry after the Cuban Revolution of that year, in a way, it commemorates Cuba’s cigar heritage but also the mass exodus of its producers to other countries after the Revolution.
The wrapper is Mexican San Andres tobacco, and the binder and filler are Nicaraguan Sancti Spiritus tobacco. Sancti Spiritus, farmed by the Garcia family, goes into the cigar and produces unique flavors that are hard to find elsewhere. Nicaragua’s volcanic soil is fully present in the punchy spice in the smoke, but there’s also a remarkable breezy coolness to it.
