Protocol Cigars has announced its second shop exclusive cigar for 2021. The cigar is called The Law, and it will be an annual limited edition for Omertà Cigar Company in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
In a press release announcing The Law, Protocol Cigars stated “Like every shop exclusive cigar we try to capture the spirit of that shop and incorporate a law enforcement theme into that project. This project is no different. When one thinks of Oklahoma City the first thing that comes into mind are cowboys and the Wild West. How could Protocol Cigars incorporate a law enforcement theme into cowboys and the Wild West? The answer was simple… The Law. The Law was a term often used in old spaghetti western movies to describe law enforcement officials such as sheriffs, marshals, and other lawmen. The Law is a perfect fit to incorporate law enforcement into the Wild West.”
The Law features a dark toothy Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder from Condega and Nicaragua filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. Blended by Hector Alfonso Sr, production for The Law is handled out of Protocol Cigars’ long-time manufacturing partner, La Zona in Estelí, Nicaragua. The cigar is a 5 x 52 Robusto and features a closed foot and a small pig-tail on the cap. A total of 400 ten-count bundles were made for the initial production. The cigar is described as strong and full-bodied.
“We wanted to give The Law a rustic look, something you would think you would have seen cowboys smoke in the Wild West. The look, the feel of the cigar in your hand, and when you smoke it screams the Wild West! This is a cigar you would think any Lawmen in the Wild West era would smoke while trying to capture their bounty!” added Juan Cancel, co-owner and founder.
“We worked tirelessly to give this project a rustic Wild West feel! The end result truly delivers. The cigar is rugged and bold, beefy, full bodied, full flavored and has full aroma with a long finish.” closed Kevin Keithan, co-owner of Protocol Cigars.
The Law comes in a Brown Paper bundle of ten with an MSRP of $95 and singles going for $9.50.
The Law will debut at Omertà Cigar Company over the course of 3 days and at multiple locations. The first event will be Friday, June 4th, starting at 6pm CST, at Omertà Cigar Company, South Tulsa. The second launch event also coincides with Omertà’s 6th Year Anniversary Part scheduled, June 5th starting at 2pm CST, at the South Oklahoma City location. This event will also happen online at Puro Cigar House https://puro-cigar-house.myshopify.com/. This will be the only time the cigar will be offered to the public online. The weekend will culminate with a Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Fundraising event on Sunday, June 6th starting at 3pm CST at The Wilshire in Oklahoma City.
Jarrett Jackson, Managing Partner of Omertà added, “The partners and I are excited to release The Law with the guys via Omertà Cigar Co and Puro Cigar House Website. The collaboration process has been a pleasure and we are looking forward to the multi-city and multi-day release events with our fellow Protocol Enthusiasts.”
Earlier this year, Protocol released Protocol Coppers as a shop exclusive for Vintage Cigar Lounge and Club in Westerly Rhode Island. In 2020, Omertà received Protocol John Doe 2.0 as a shop exclusive.
