Protocol cigars are expertly handcrafted in the famous La Zona cigar factory in Nicaragua in four exquisite blends, namely, the original Protocol, Misconduct, Themis, and Probable Cause, each identified by blue, red, gold, and silver bands. The Protocol Blue cigars offer rich, full bodied nuances of espresso, leather, cedar, and spice. Protocol Misconduct Silver cigars are full bodied and loaded with compelling notes of cocoa, black pepper, cedar, and hints of fruit. Probable Cause Red cigars bring another full-bodied blend to the premium Protocol lineup. This one has flavors of earth, spice, chocolate, caramel, and sweet cocoa. When looking for a smoke with less power, especially for a morning or mid-day treat, the Protocol Themis Gold cigar fits the bill nicely with its inviting, medium bodied flavors of cream, citrus, cedar, and baking spices. With his Protocol cigars, renowned master blender Erik Espinosa has created a versatile line of handmade premium cigars that will appeal to a wide audience of smokers.
