Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Paddy Wagon

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Paddy Wagon

Overall, I felt like the Protocol Paddy Wagon performed similarly to the other store exclusives from the brand. Just a basic flavor profile that wasn't all that interesting and doesn't match the level of most of the core lines. Not something I see myself returning to.

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol The Law

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol The Law

The Protocol The Law was pretty on par with the brands single store releases as it shows a nice profile to begin and then falls back to average. I might revisit this to see if a better constructed version has a better showing, but it's not high on my list to do so.

Protocol Cigars is pleased to announce the sequel to the smash hit The Law with The Law Part 2. The Law Part 2 is for Omertà Cigar Company in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, once again. The success of The Law last year demanded a sequel.

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro Corona Gorda

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro Corona Gorda

Overall, the Protocol Sir Robert Peel Maduro Corona Gorda was fairly average as the damp, musty wood wasn't my favorite and it was the dominant component of the profile. All in all, the cigar keeps up with the original release in the line, but still isn't something I'd see myself coming back to all that frequently.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Bass Reeves Maduro

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Bass Reeves Maduro

The Protocol Bass Reeves Maduro delivered a palate intense experience in the first third that fortunately softened in the second third while still maintaining complexity and my engagement. The last third was fairly linear with a mostly wood forward profile, but overall this was a good cigar that I would happily smoke again. Having reviewed the Natural and the Maduro, I gravitate towards the Maduro and it isn't even a contest.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Bass Reeves Natural

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Bass Reeves Natural

Overall, I found the profile of the Protocol Bass Reeves Natural to be too mineral forward, suppressing the other good flavors of roasted nuts, white pepper and cedar. Because the mineral notes were too dominant, it tipped off the balance of the flavor profile. This ultimately gave the vibe of an average tasting cigar.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Coppers

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Coppers

While the Protocol Coppers isn't bad, it just couldn't maintain what was delivered in the first third. I think this is a slightly better offering than most of the other special/single store releases from the brand and I might come back to it from time to time, but it isn't something that I see myself going back to all that regularly. It's worth trying one to see what you think.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol John Doe 2.0

Team Cigar Review: Protocol John Doe 2.0

The Protocol John Doe 2.0 keeps at the same level that I've found the brands limited releases to perform at which is not up to par with the core lines. For those that like this style of cigar, it will probably work for them, but I don't see myself returning to this one.
