The draw was perfect, with just the right amount of resistance that I prefer.
The cigar had an average enjoyment level throughout as the profile was focused around cedar, black pepper and mustiness. Some dry earth joined in the final third which made the overall profile a bit dry. 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.
