Cigar Dojo and Protocol Cigars have another team project on the horizon. The Protocol Night Stick will be a 6.5 x 54 toro gordo, a size befitting the ‘Night Stick’ name. This cigar is meant to follow in the tradition of the Protocol K9, released in 2018 and selling out in record time. The Protocol K9 is considered by many to be the best cigar ever to carry the Cigar Dojo name. Cigar Dojo and Protocol hope to repeat the same success when Night Stick releases on April 5th, 2019.
Cubariqueño Cigar Company (Protocol) and Cigar Dojo collaborated with Héctor J. Alfonso, Sr., Director of Operations for Espinosa Premium Cigars, to create the blend. Like all Protocol cigars, the Night Stick is geared towards vibrant Nicaraguan flavors. This started with a fillers selected from the Condega and Jalapa regions of Nicaragua. The binder is also a Nicaraguan leaf, finally punctuated by a very specific Ecuadorian Habano Rosado Oscuro wrapper.
“We wanted to follow up the extraordinarily successful Protocol K9 with something special for the Cigar Dojo community! We wanted the Dojo Nation to have a very memorable cigar experience, so we blended this beauty especially with them in mind! I made myself a few extra because I know they are going to sell out fast!” said Juan Cancel, co-owner of Cubariqueño Cigar Co.
“The release party, the amazing cigar, working with Juan, Bill, and Kevin—the Night Stick is EPIC in every facet, so get ready for another instant classic.” said Cigar Dojo owner Eric ‘Master Sensei’ Guttormson
“Juan and I have been involved with the Cigar Dojo community since 2012. Being able to work with Eric and blend a second Dojo cigar after the K9 hit is an honor.” added Bill Ives, co-owner of Cubariqueño Cigar Co.
The release party for Protocol Night Stick will take place at Famous Smoke Shop and accompanying Leaf Cigar Bar, in Easton, PA. The party will begin simultaneously with the cigar’s release on April 5th at 12pm (Eastern Time).
