Protocol Cigars has announced a limited edition cigar known as the Protocol Pool Party Year 1. It’s a cigar that won’t be for sale, but available to attendees for the company’s Protocol Pool Party – being held Saturday August 1st, at the Oak Tree Lodge in Neptune, New Jersey.

Produced at Erik Espinosa’s La Zona factory, Protocol Pool Party Year 1 consisted of a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Connecticut Shade binder, and Nicaraguan Corojo from Estelí and Condega for the fillers. The cigar is available in one size – a 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda. The cigars are presented in 10-count paper bundles.

The Protocol Pool Party Year 1 cigar will not be for sale and will be made available to the first 100 attendees at the Protocol Pool Party – a ticketed event. The Protocol Pool Party is an event that was started at the home of Protocol Cigars co-owner Kevin Keithan. The event has steadily outgrown that location. This year the company moved the event to the Oak Tree Lodge. It’s an all-outdoor event venue with a 7-acre picnic ground and an Olympic size pool. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Protocol Cigars says the event is 100% compliant with all New Jersey State COVID-19 rules and regulations and that it has implemented several layers of protection for all attendees.

“We wanted to do something special for our supporters, especially since everyone has been locked at home for the last several months. The demand to attend and numbers have grown exponentially for this event and needed a move to a bigger venue. We have implemented safety precautions to ensure everyone’s well being. The health of our supporters is of the utmost importance to us. With that said everyone will be safe and a phenomenal time will be had by all!” commented Juan Cancel, co-owner Protocol Cigars.

The company has more details around the event on its website and social media platforms.
