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. The second third saw some bitterness come in but it wasn’t so bitter that I wanted to out it down. I was surprised by how it mellowed towards the end. Still, all in all, a very nice experience.” -Eric (smalls29)

“I find myself enjoying this more while reflecting back on it. The flavor profile was a very traditional style Nicaraguan with tobacco, cedar, leather, and pepper but it all worked very well when taken as a whole. The retrohale provided a bit of a break from the draw and even though the draw was a bit tight it was a good cigar for what it was. It’s not a game changing cigar but it’s a solid smoke and certainly worth your time. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“I immensely enjoyed this cigar. The quality of flavors, smoke, and construction make this one of the highlights of the year for me. I usually would have to smoke another to make sure it wasn’t a fluke, but on this single experience I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. ” -Alan (Eulogy)

“This was a wonderful experience. The flavors were nice and constant and never strayed in to bitterness and yuck. The cedar flavor was there from begging to end. The best part was the slightly sweet taste left on the palate. The aroma was that of a cedar log burning in the fireplace that made this one even more enjoyable. Definitely one for the humidor. ” -Eric (smalls29)

“This was probably one of my most favorite reviews that I have done. I was dreading initially smoking this cigar only because of the vitola and amount of time I knew was required. However, as soon as the first third started and the flavor profile showed itself, I was hooked. Between the good balance of earth and barnyard, to the coffee and creamy finish, this cigar had an overall complexity that was second to none. You will need to block off a solid amount of time, but by no means will you be disappointed. This cigar will go well with coffee, libations, or a Pepsi. Enjoy these as much as possible.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)

“Even though this cigar was a mild/medium taste, the woody flavors had a nice balance throughout. There were flavors of oak and cherry wood with a nice campfire aroma coming from the smoke. The after-taste was not over powering and left a nice taste behind. Even though a bitter flavor showed, it did not come until almost at the end. Overall I am very pleased and would love to enjoy this one again.” -Eric (smalls29)

“I was very surprised by this stick. After the light aromas on the prelight, the cigar was full of great flavors. It was very cubanesque from the look and vitola to the flavor. I would love to smoke this in the morning with a cup of coffee. The stick had a couple of faults but was easy to overlook because the flavor was so good. I even nubbed this thing all the way down.” -Matt (Mattehh)

“Have you ever lit up a cigar with no preconceived notions, and after the fist puff you say to yourself, or out loud “Damn, this is nice?” well I did and that same thought stayed with me the entire smoke. Just a great amount of cream/honey and sweetness. This would be an excellent first cigar of the day with or without coffee. My only complaint was it was so short, but maybe that was the maker’s intention, to keep you coming back for more. I personally would like to keep these in my humi, for when I need that perfect smoking experience. ” -Mickey T. (irratebass)

“This cigar started very mild and while I was hoping for some change, it remained mild and pretty flavorless throughout. While the cigar’s appearance, draw, and construction is very good overall, it lacked in flavor and depth. I do not think I would recommend this cigar.” -David F. (David F.)

“This was such an enjoyable cigar. It was not a powerhouse, and it was not overly complex, but it was flavorful all the way. I enjoyed each puff, and the sweet/spice mix was really a nice combo at the end of the day. It also looked beautiful, and had no performance issues, so no extra work on the part of the smoker in order to enjoy the cigar. This one would have a place in my humidor. ” -Matthew T.
