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)
