Surrogates are blended & rolled at the famed My Father Cigar Factory in Nicaragua under the watchful eyes of the Garcia family. The cigars are made for Pete Johnson under his joint venture company L’Atelier.
The Surrogates are blended for full-bodied cigar smokers with the focus of the blend on delivering strength with a good amount of flavor to boot. Each size of the Surrogates is blended to deliver a different flavor profile, and all are composed using full-bodied Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The two exceptions iare the Tramp Stamp, which uses an Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper, and the Crystal Baller, which utilizes an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The Surrogates cigars are packaged in cabinet boxes of 20 cigars.
