Blind Cigar Review: Cubariqueño | Protocol Official Misconduct Toro

“This one ran the spectrum of boldness. It started out with a medium bold taste that grew very bold and biter and then became mild in the final third. I was happy with the consistent flavors of wood and nut throughout which helped maintain some of the enjoyment of this smoke.

Still, all in all, a very nice experience.” -Eric (smalls29)
