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 handmade premium Protocol cigar comes dressed in your choice of a stunning Ecuador Habano wrapper, or a dark, oily, San Andres Mexican leaf surrounding a well-aged blend of Nicaraguan binder and long-filler tobaccos. The gold banded Themis selection is medium bodied in strength, while the rest of the line is full-bodied, yet exceptionally smooth on the palate. These luxury-class cigars reveal delectable tasting notes of chocolate, earth, black pepper, cream, sweet cedar, and more, depending on which blend that you chose. The Protocol brand will delight any cigar fan that craves unique, complex, and highly refined flavors.
