Cigar News: Cubariqueño Cigar Company National Protocol Themis Release Announced

Cubariqueño Cigar Company Protocol Themis Release Announced


Cubariqueño Cigar Company is proud to announce that it is releasing its third blend, Protocol Themis, at the 2017 International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailer trade show in Las Vegas. “We are super excited to announce the Protocol Themis,” stated Bill Ives, managing partner of  Cubariqueño Cigar Company. “

These cigars will launch at the 2017 IPCPR trade show with a soft launch on May 13th at our 2 year anniversary party located at Berkeley Humidor, Berkeley Heights, New Jersey.”



The name, Themis,  stays true to the company’s law enforcement motif, with partners Bill Ives and Juan Cancel both as law enforcement officers. But it also pays tribute to William Agathis, a managing partner with Greek decent. 

Protocol Themis pays homage to the Lady of Justice symbol. Themis, from ancient Greek mythology, was the Titan goddess of divine law and order – the traditional rules of conduct, first established by the gods.

The cigar was the brain child of Agathis as he worked closely with Hector Alfonso Sr. to create what he feels is an amazing blend.



  • Robusto: 5 x 52
  • Toro: 6 x 52



Production will remain at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. Themis will be available in two offerings, a round 5 x 52 Robusto and a 6 x 52 Toro, also rounded. Themis is elegantly wrapped in a stunning Equdorian Connecticut leaf.

Its all-Nicaraguan filler is enveloped by a Nicaraguan binder. “We are classifying Themis as a medium-strength cigar with full flavor,” explained Agathis.

The robusto will retail for $9.69 and the Toro will have a M.S.R.P. of $9.89. Both vitolas will be available in boxes of 10.
