The Cigar: L'Atelier Surrogates Crystal Baller (5.7 x 56)

The Specs:

Country Manufactured: NICARAGUA
Wrapper: EQUADORIAN HABANO
Filler: NICARAGUAN
Binder: NICARAGUAN

The Hype:

Pete Johnson & crew were at it again.

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.

Crystal Baller – Medium to full-bodied. Notes of natural sweetness, spice, cocoa, cedar, and a toasty finish. Featuring: Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan long-fillers, and box-pressed finish.

Due Date: October 25th., 2018

The Reviewers:

1. quickme (Niki)
2. CrazyK (Karl)
3. pferg (Patrick)
4. Vanilla Gorilla (Greg)
5. biggsy16 (Rich)

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Stephen for taking this one on and providing the cigar. THANKS!! And happy smokin'

What are the requirements before I'd be able to participate in a Geek Critique?

I am interested in doing one, as soon as I'm eligible.

Ryan - this particular one the sponsor, Stephen, hand picked his reviewers. December is filled up too. However, soon we will be recruiting 12 new sponsors for next year, which you could sign up for if you like, and then every month there will be openings for reviewers. You just need to be active on the site and volunteer to review when you see the thread looking for reviewers.
