Team Cigar Review: Atabey Spiritus

Team Cigar Review: Atabey Spiritus

The Atabey Spiritus is a complex and rich Lancero smoking experience. The cigar has bold flavors that don't overwhelm the palate, for a truly luxurious profile. If you are an Atabey fan, or are simply looking for a premiere smoking experience, you would do well to pick yourself up a Spiritus.

The trianglar design will match the standard logo shape but the depth of the ashtray is designed to resemble the hat worn by the character in the Count of Monecristo, Edmond Dantes. The three points of the triangle drop down to create the feet of the ashtray, lifting the base above the table it is on, creating a magical effect that the ashtray is levitating.

This would be more of a special occasion smoke and in that regard, the cigar doesn't disappoint. If you reach for this cigar, make sure it's something you can dedicate the time to uninterrupted as it deserves your full attention to get all of the flavors it presents. I would gladly smoke more of these when the opportunity presents itself.

The flavor is primarily centered around wood and carried some baking spice, black pepper and cream as accompanying notes. I'd recommend a larger vitola if you want to try the line, but this still provides an enjoyable experience.

I know that this line gets lost with the Atabey and Byron getting most of the attention, but this is still a pretty solid smoke. I would definitely recommend picking one up to give a try.
