HBTC Review: 601 Black Toro
The 601 Black Toro is a new imagining of a cigar that was pulled from the market by Espinosa many years ago. This new Toro was unveiled at a LaZonaPalooza event hosted by Espinosa Cigars, and officially released at the 2021 PCA Trade Show.

As a way to integrate Kevin's technology background into the law enforcement theme of the Protocol series, the company released the Cyber Crimes Unit. The neon-green design fits nicely into the Protocol series of the original Protocol Blue, the Probable Cause Red, and the Themis Yellow (or as Garret likes to call it, the M-I-5). Here is Matt's review of this cigar.
