Cubariqueño Cigar Co. announces the release of the Protocol Confidential Informant as a Cigars International Exclusive. The Protocol CI stays true to the company’s law enforcement theme. C.I. also happens to be the nickname for Cigars International as well as the abbreviation for a confidential informant in police jargon.
The La Zona Factory in Estelí, Nicaragua is rolling the cigar. Confidential Informant comes in one size – a 6 1/2 X 52 box press format packed in bundles of 10.
The blend consists of an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper with Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. The initial release is limited to 500 bundles.
Cigars International is releasing the bundles nationally to all CI retail locations starting on Black Friday, November 29, 2019. Protocol owners, Juan Cancel and Bill Ives, are attending the kickoff events.
The events will run as follows:
- Bethlehem Super-Store 10am-1pm
- Downtown C.I. from 1:30pm – 3:30pm
- Hamburg Super-Store 6pm-11pm.
Each location is raffling off a custom hand carved CI / Protocol Humidor from Nicaragua at the close of business on the 29th.
“Cigars International has been a great partner with Cubariqueño Cigar Co. and we are proud to work with them on this release” stated Kevin Keithan, National sales manager of Cubariqueño Cigar Company.
