With so many great top-quality brands to choose from, and more coming to the market on a steady basis, a few special offerings that really standout may be inadvertently overlooked, one such being the Cubariqueno Protocol line of premium handmade cigars.
Cubariqueno Protocol cigars were created by Juan Cancel & Bill Ives, two former police officers, turned master cigarmakers. Rolled at the famous La Zona cigar factory in Nicaragua under the watchful eye of master blender Erik Espinosa, the Protocol cigar line consists of a variety of popular sizes distinguished by striking blue, gold, silver, and red bands.
The gold-banded Protocol Themis cigars, available in Toro and Robusto formats, consist of premium Nicaraguan binder and long-filler tobaccos seamlessly rolled in a golden Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Themis is a delicious and complex medium body smoke with luscious layers of cream, citrus, cedar, baking spices, and hints of black pepper.
The Protocol Blue selection, available in a classic Corona Gordo and a popular Toro size, both adorned in blue bands, showcases a pristine Ecuador Habano wrapper that surrounds the finest aged Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It’s a full-bodied blend that coats the palate with mouthwatering flavors of cocoa, cedar, chocolate, and pepper.
The silver-banded Protocol Misconduct cigars greet the smoker with a full bodied tapestry of cocoa, black pepper, cedar, and some unique floral components, courtesy of a stunning Ecuador Habano wrapper and a premium blend of Nicaraguan binder and fillers. Misconduct is presented in just one solidly packed 6 x 50 Toro size.
Rounding out the luxury class Cubariqueno brand portfolio is the Protocol Probable Cause. These red-banded beauties, available in a 6.5 x 48 Churchill and an elegant 7 x 38 Lancero selection, feature a top-quality San Andres Mexican Maduro wrapper over fully aged Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobaccos. Best described as a maduro cigar lover’s dream, these dark and decadent smokes deliver full bodied flavors of peppery spice, chocolate, caramel, and sweet cocoa.
With the perfect blend for just about every style of smoker, Cubariqueno Protocol is a versatile line of delectable handmade premium cigars that deserve a first or second look.
