A few weeks ago, we reported on a new release by L’Atelier Imports that is making its debut at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show. The cigar is called the Extension de la Racine and will only be sold to retailers that will be placing their order at the trade show. A photo on instagram gave a look at the packaging as well as preliminary information on the blend.
As we noted from an interview with L’Atelier Imports co-owner Sean “Casper” Johnson, the Extension de la Racine will be packaged in a 20 count cabinet style box – which is featured in the instagram photo. The captioning of the photo indicated the cigar would use a Sun Grown Criollo wrapper and would measure 5 7/8 x 52.
The cigar’s name means “extension of the root”. While the cigar uses a Criollo wrapper, the blend is an off-shoot of the core L’Atelier blend, thus that was the impetus for the name.
