I think the company has released a balanced and nuanced Limited Edition with the Cubariqueño Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro. The packaging is fitting of a limited release, and while the flavor profile is more reduced in intensity from their regular production cigars, I feel like it's the type of blend you want to showcase in this way.

Another good regular production release in the Cubariqueño Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural, but not to the level of sophistication as expected. The flavors are no doubt bolder than prior releases but it doesn't have that X factor that is in level with the regal style of the packaging. I look forward to the maduro version to gauge the better of the releases.

The Cubariqueño Protocol Jane Doe is medium strength with enjoyable complexity through the first and second thirds. The cigar has a range of flavors from cedar, leather, cocoa, bread, pepper, baking spices and earth. Overall, I enjoyed the Protocol Jane Doe and would happily smoke it again.

Team Cigar Review: Cubariqueño Protocol Double Corona

A rare and might I say "unicorn" of a cigar personally made for the Cubariqueño guys has a lot of clout. After smoking the Cubariqueño Protocol Double Corona, the expectations didn't quite match up, but what I can definitively say is, it is a good cigar. The only thing that it falls short on is not having that complexity build up and transitions I was seeking.
