Protocol Official Misconduct

Consistently releasing one new cigar under the Protocol collection each year since the company's debut, Cubariqueño Cigar Company debuted the Protocol Official Misconduct in 2018 as the brand's fourth core-line release. Like the original Protocol cigar (released in 2015), Official Misconduct is constructed from all-Nicaraguan fillers and binder, as well as being finished in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Where the two cigars begin to differentiate themselves is primarily in the strength output, with the original Protocol cigar being the strongest blend from Cubariqueño (due to an unusually high ligero-filled filler recipe). With Official Misconduct, the strength is dialed back a few notches, offering a classic Habano profile that focuses more on nuance and finesse.
