L'Atelier Surrogates Satin Glove
This is not the cigar that I remember! Every one (five pack) was really tight on the draw, and didn't have the type of natural flavor that I remember. Unless I got a bad batch, I can't recommend these any longer.

Enjoyable smoke
I bought these because I enjoyed the Animal Cracker. These definately need to sit in the humidor a couple weeks for the best taste. I didn't like the packaging at all, too hard to open and you risk damaging the product. They are small so they lend themselves to a quick smoke when time doesn't permit a larger cigar. They were very enjoyable, but not as strong on flavor as the Animal Cracker. I will buy more for sure.

L'Atelier Surrogates Cracker Crumbs
Excellent smoke. However I am curious sometimes they are a lighter wrapper leaf with a white "surrogates" band. And other times a bit darker leaf with a black band. The black banded ones are a bit bolder & I prefer them.

My MUST have.
This is the perfect 2nd cigar of the night. For those nights when you finish one and just are not quite done yet.

Great little cigars
Great flavor and great value on these. Perfect when you're short on time. I smoke them on my lunch break. Burn time is about 45 mins.

Awesome smoke
Like everything else Pete Johnson touches, these are an amazing short smoke that never fails to deliver. If you like the Surrogates brand you need to try these

Tasty sticks
The sticks were at a great price and came in a timely manner, but upon opening the soft pack some of the foots were cracked! Great cigar, but the handling might not have been so great.

Only thing out there that compares is the papas Fritas. The cracker crumb is marvelous! I'm smoking them like tic tacs!

Short, but sweet!
Lush delicious smoke, and the perfect size. I'm deployed currently and can rarely sneak out for a 'gar. It would be nice to be able to get outside for a break with a short cigar at all...but this particular short cigar makes each time downright enjoyable. I look forward to my break for more than just getting away from my desk...thanks Pete Johnson!

Pleasantly Surprised
I purchased on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. I'm not a conisur of describing the tastes of cigars, but my smoke was a smooth well blended experience with an even burn and most importantly a pleasant taste and smell with no bad after taste or diminishing returns as I finished.

CRACK!!! er' Crumbs
These little gems are nothing short of amazing. You get the enjoyment of a full size cigar in a small package. If you think this is a quick smoke than your in for a surprise. Cracker Crumbs (Animal Cracker's little brother), is a medium/full bodied cigar that has a nice even burn and is full of flavor. Everyone's taste is different but I would highly recommend these.

Put it in the rotation.
Though it's the lowest rated by CA, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even burn, no problems. With such a mild start, the flavor really intensified with each pull. Really pleasant aftertaste.

So so
I was a little disappointed. The burn on all 5 cigars was uneven and required frequent touch ups and the flavor wasn't what I was expecting. I'm still glad I tried them. It's all about the adventure. I plan on trying the other surrogates line as well
Customer Testimonials
Tasty after 1st inch, with spice, cocoa, cedar, a bit of fruit flavor building continually until after the middle, it mellows out to a light spicy finish. Enjoyable throughout. REALLY LIKE! Good value too.
The Surrogates Bone Crusher has become one of my favorite cigars. Very well balanced, great flavors and excellent burn. Definitely Pete Johnson and DPG high quality tobaccos and high rolling standards. Very reasonably priced as well for the quality of the stick. I must try the rest, and I will.
By far one of the best full bodied sticks out there. I'm happy to see CI carrying them since they started out as a NHC exclusive. Perfect construction and it burns razor sharp with no touch ups. The Bone crusher is the strongest of the bunch with heavy notes of earth, leather and espresso. It's starts out with a strong spiciness that gradually mellows out to an awesome cigar. Pick these up and you won't be disappointed!
