L’Atelier Imports Surrogates Skull Breaker
This was an attractive cigar with a sharp and stubby head. It had a pungent hay-like aroma on the pre-light with a slight tangy sweetness that carried over to the pre-light taste. The wrapper was dark and oily with a leathery texture between the fingers and the cigar was solid to the touch. Once lit a smooth and steady draw provided a full and rich aroma with a hearty, mouthwatering texture. The aroma became richer and more luring as the cigar was smoked. A lingering white peppery spice developed in the taste and was also present in the aroma. The smoke was smooth through the nose and revealed dark, dried fruit tones with a smoky characteristic. It had a great slow burn that clung on to a long white ash. This was a hearty full bodied full flavored cigar overall that will leave a lasting impression. A great choice for an after meal smoke.
