Surrogates - “LIMITED EDITION QUALITY AT AN EVERYDAY PRICE”
Have you ever wished that you could get more of a special stick that you
purchased as a limited release because you are down to your last few,
and you are torn between smoking them and saving them? What about the
times when funds are low, and you can't manage to pick up a special
stick before they are gone? Well, that's the dilemma that spawned the
idea for Surrogates.
The offerings in the Surrogates line are all made by the Garcia Family and blended by Pete Johnson and the L'Atelier team. Surrogates was started in 2011 by Pete Johnson and Dan Welsh and when L’Atelier Imports was created in 2012, Surrogates was a perfect fit for the portfolio with Dan at the helm.
This premium line, made at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua is a unique undertaking. Each vitola released under the Surrogates brand will have it’s own character derived from it’s own blend and size. Created to bring the excitement of a limited edition stick at a consumer conscious price point and be readily available, these vitolas answer the question of whether to save it or smoke it with a blaring “Smoke it! Every day!”. The Surrogates tagline of “Limited Edition Quality at an Everyday Price” is another way that L’Atelier Imports is bringing the premium cigar experience to more cigar enthusiasts.
Each vitola released under the Surrogates brand has it's own character derived from it's own blend and size.
