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. 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 come!Juan Cancel, Cubariqueño co-founder

Protocol Taser cigars

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.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!
