Tatuaje Surrogates Big Ten Robusto
With names like Animal Cracker, Skull Breaker, and Satin Glove, Surrogates is a playful line of cigars. But did you know it’s already been ten years of fluffy white clouds? That’s right. We’ve already had another ten years of tasty limited edition blends from the proven partners: José “Don Pepin” Garcia and Pete Johnson. We were saying the same thing in their first-decade run. Now look at them! The hits just don’t stop coming. That’s two decades and counting…
Tatuaje Surrogates Big 10 is true to its name. Reviewers are pretty consistent in describing this as a big, strong, “powerhouse” cigar. That can mean different things to different people, but the nicotine impact is definitely there, as is flavor. Get ready for the slap of black pepper and the kiss of cookie crème, along with a lot more going on. We’re guessing these are going to sell out fast.
Limited editions are like that, ya know?
We can definitely say that these are for a particular kind of smoker. Don’t pick these up if you want smooth blends, mild sticks, or something gentle for an unremarkable morning coffee. Light up Tatuaje Surrogates Big 10 when you’ve got a hankering for something that gets out of the gate like a thoroughbred and brings everything that Nicaraguan leaf can bring.
Since their original effort together, the Cubanesque Cabinet Tainos cigars, helped Garcia and Johnson both step into the spotlight around 20 years ago, both have risen and risen some more. Garcia was doing it again, creating a second act even more impressive than his first as a maestro of maestros in Cuba. Johnson was a tobacco lover also getting into a second act, as his cigar hobby eclipsed his passion as a metal bassist in the band Hung Jury.
Who knows what the third act will hold? All we know is that some celebration is certainly due at this point.
