L'Atelier Surrogates Satin Glove Cigar Information from the Manufacturer

L'Atelier Surrogates Satin Glove Cigar Review by Cigar Dojo

L’Atelier Imports is known for it’s inspiration from both a classic, Cuban approach to cigar craftsmanship, as well as its French and wine influences. It’s no coincidence that lead brand-runner Pete Johnson has become known for the same qualities in his products and is in the process of entering into the wine market. The cigars in the Surrogates line are made in Nicaragua by the Garcia family at the My Father Cigars factory and blended by Pete Johnson. As it was described to us by Dan Welsh, part-owner of L’Atelier Imports, Surrogates has always been a one-off brand. I.E. every cigar in the line consists of its own size, blend, name, and design. He went on to describe in detail the predictive pattern of so many cigar smokers, putting so much emphasis on the brand name, design, marketing, etc. With the Surrogates “experiment”, he hopes to offer the cigars as a sort of “blind taste test”, allowing the cigars to speak for themselves. Notice the strange branding used throughout the line, the unconventional names of the cigars and the strange, cartoon-like designs – the message certainly reads “don’t judge a book by its cover.”
