Team Cigar Review: Protocol Pool Party Year 2

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Pool Party Year 2

Back to the good stuff. The Protocol Pool Party Year 2 is the wheelhouse of La Zona that I really enjoy, giving richness in spice and added sweetness. I don't recall a new release that fit this mold in quite some time. Just make sure you eat some food or have some soda nearby, because this is a bit of a ringer.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Eliot Ness Maduro

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Eliot Ness Maduro

The Protocol Eliot Ness Maduro was consistently good through both cigars reviewed. The profile was more spice driven in the first third, dessert-like in the second third and chocolate and cream in the last third. After reviewing both the Natural and Maduro, I would say that I found the Maduro to be more consistently engaging through the entire smoking experience.

The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit performed fairly well, with aggressive white pepper in the first third, and a more nuanced chocolate forward flavor in the second third. I wasn't quite sure what to make of the profile, and in the end it seemed as if there was a teleport chamber, and the Protocol Red and Blue stepped in at the same time and came out the other side as a chimera.

Team Cigar Review: Protocol Eliot Ness Natural

The Protocol Eliot Ness Natural was overall a good cigar, with intense baking spices at times accented with cocoa and citrus components. I would smoke this cigar again, although I am very interested to see how the Maduro release stacks up against the Natural.

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Confidential Informant

Personal Cigar Review: Protocol Confidential Informant

The Protocol Confidential Informant started with a nice profile, but by the second third, things dropped down to average and maintained that level the rest of the way. This seemed to be pretty typical of the brands limited exclusives as they don't match up to how good the core line offerings are.

Cigar News: Protocol J Train Announced

The Protocol J Train is made at The La Zona Cigar Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. The vitola will be a 5X50 cigar with a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder, and a Nicaraguan and Honduran combination for the filler. The cigar is a solid medium plus on the body with some sweetness, slight white pepper aroma with a creamy finish.
