Next month, L’Atelier Imports will introduce a new line extension to its Surrogates Animal Cracker blend. The Surrogates Animcal Cracker AC550 will add a traditional 5 x 50 sized offering into the popular line.The AC550 becomes the third vitola based on the Animal Cracker blend. The announcement of this new size was reported by New Havana Cigars – the retail outlet owned by Dan Welsh who also is a partner with L’Atelier Imports.

The Surrogates Animal Cracker was introduced in 2013.  The first vitola released was the 6 x 60 size.  A little over a year later L’Atelier Imports added Cracker Crumbs, a 4 1/2 x 38 line extension sold in five packs. The Animal Cracker  blend has been positioned as the strongest cigar in the L’Atelier portfolio.

Welsh recently published a video showcasing the AC550 being packaged.
