"This was a great cigar. It was mild to medium in strength which gave me some nice cream mixed with floral and chocolate flavors with a hint of nuts here and there, but mostly on the finish. I would definitely smoke this again. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)
"I really enjoyed this experience. If there were no draw issues at the beginning I would have been even more enchanted with it. There were enough sweetness and shifting of core flavors that I never found myself bored and towards the middle, I found the smoke became almost honeyed in texture. I certainly recommend picking one up and could see myself keeping a fiver on hand." -Alan (Eulogy)
2018 was the first time Cigar Dojo and Cubariqueño Cigar Co. collaborated on a cigar, "Protocol K9." The next year the duo released "Protocol Night Stick." And now, in 2021, we get the "Protocol Taser." The idea of all their collaborations has been instruments of law enforcement, now including the tactical taser. It is a valuable asset to many law enforcement agencies as a non-lethal way to incapacitate perpetrators.
"Really enjoyed this cigar. Fairly potent with a lot of sweetness. By the finale there were some rich coffee notes to go along with the world tour of sweets. I don't typically select belicosos as I find there is a tendency for the wrapper to unravel at inopportune moments, but this well crafted cigar never even hinted at such concerns. " -John I.

"I enjoyed this cigar. It felt solid, looked solid, and tasted great. Floral and roasted flavors I felt ran the show but a little pepper and citrus were in there enough to keep you interested." -Jake P. (Jake P.)
"The flavors on the cigar were interesting and complex from the get-go. While the strength never passed a solid medium the taste was a journey starting with a sweet floral beginning into the more spicy cedar middle followed by a super complex end with nuts and pepper. The ash and burn were pretty much perfect. My only real complaint was how fast it smoked timing in at just over an hour. I will be grabbing some more of whatever this is for a nice morning cigar." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
"Fairly one dimensional with a flavor profile hovering around sweet and leathery. All of that was nice enough, but definitely a milder cigar than I generally prefer. I wouldn't be to quick to seek out more of these, but it would serve as a decent enough experience for a cigar novice. " -John I. (John I.)

"This was a cigar that wanted to battle. Whether it was the issues with burn, or the amount of strength it offered, it kept my on my toes. The entire time I smoked it, I kept being brought back to my early years of cigars and the one cigar is reminds me of more than anything is a Liga Privada. The strength, the flavors, and that massive smoke output is right in line with it. It took me back to those days of getting knocked on my rear, surrounded by smoke. It's a cigar I can say I wouldn't reach for, as it just isn't in my wheelhouse anymore. " -Doug S. (Unpossible_1)
