Cigar Dojo & Cubariqueño Prepare Protocol Taser Cigar!
In 2018, Cigar Dojo and Cubariqueño Cigar Co. collaborated for the
first time, unleashing the Protocol K9 in limited quantities. K9 was
followed by the Protocol Night Stick in 2019, and the third release in
the series for 2021: Protocol Taser.
Since the beginning, this series has highlighted the various assets at
the disposal of law enforcement, now including the tactical taser.
This weapon has become an indispensable asset for our police officers,
with its non-lethal shock incapacitating perpetrators at distances
unattainable by the night stick.
“I have been a member of the Cigar Dojo community from early on,”
commented Juan Cancel, co-founder of Cubariqueño Cigar Co. “My love
for Cigar Dojo has grown with every passing year. The Taser is our
third collaboration with them and it is a dream come true. It is
PHENOMENAL what we have accomplished together. The best is yet to
If the K9 was toothy and smoked with a bite, and the Night Stick was
heavy-hitting in profile, then the Taser provides a lively tingle on
the lips and tongue, as well as a buzz through the retrohale. This is
brought on through a complex tobacco recipe, including a Nicaraguan
Habano Cafe wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and fillers of
Nicaragua (Estelí and Ometepe viso) and the U.S. (Pennsylvania
ligero). Tying the theme together, Taser is packaged with a
standard-issue appearance; and the robusto-sized cigars are rolled
with a unique double rabito head that resembles the two electrodes of
a taser weapon.
“When the Dojo and Protocol collaborate, it’s electric! The Taser has
a shocking and unique blend that is the perfect followup to the Night
Stick and K9,” commented Eric Guttormson, owner of Cigar Dojo.
As with the prior two releases, Protocol Taser will debut with an
in-person event, featuring Juan Cancel of Protocol Cigars and Master
Sensei and the Cigar Dojo team. Protocol Taser is set to launch
exclusively through retailer Smoke Inn Cigars on March 26th at 12pm
(EDT) for Cigar Dojo members; remaining cigars will become available
to the public at 12:30pm (EDT). Five hundred bundles of 10 cigars have
been crafted for release, with a select number being reserved for the
release party, which will be held at Smoke Inn’s Boynton Beach
headquarters later that night.
Protocol K9 and Protocol Night Stick each sold out within hours, and
the Protocol Taser looks to be no different!
