L'atelier - Surrogates
Introducing the next project from L'Atelier cigars, Surrogates. Blended by Pete Johnson, and crafted in Don Pepin's My Father factory in Nicaragua, each Surrogate was masterfully created to serve up four unique and completely different experiences. This time around, their goal was simple. To create a new series of cigars, limited-edition in nature, that would be readily available to the consumer without breaking the bank. A winning combination if you ask me. Here's the bottom line: Surrogates deliver the goods as promised.
Each blend is easily distinguished by its....errr....'one of a kind' names and bands. I don't know where they came up with these, but they sure make for a good conversation.
Animal Cracker - Medium to full-bodied with a thick 60-ring gauge vitola. An Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper gives off a dark chocolate complection. Nicaraguan long-leaves and binder promote nuances of coffee, cherry, and earth with a prominent pepper appearing on the retro-hale.
