It has been fully documented that Protocol Cigars prides itself on its engagement and connection to Cigar Groups. Protocol Cigars’ philosophy is that these cigar groups are an important and vital aspect of the cigar industry, being as important as retail stores and cigar manufacturers. Once again Protocol Cigars adheres to this philosophy with its latest limited edition release. Protocol Cigars is honored to release the second cigar for Johnny Smokes Uncut cigar group: The Protocol F Train. The Protocol F Train joins the list of other releases for cigar groups. The first was the Fat Ash, which had 3 renditions, then there was the 5 Families, which was created for 5 cigar groups including Distinguished Ruffians, Fat Ash, Smoke House Gorillas, Sheep Dog, and BOTL PA Chapter. The last one was the Protocol J Train.
Johnny Smokes Uncut Cigar Group was founded by John Remer in 2020. John has been an avid cigar smoker for well over 20 years. He loves cigars and his passion continues to grow with every passing year. In a very short time the group has grown into over 4,700 members, spanning over 85 countries. John goes on live from the Facebook Group several times a day and the engagement is very high. Johnny Smokes Uncut has 2 weekly shows that goes live on Facebook. On Thursdays there is JSU Live and on Sundays is the JSU Fireside chats. Both shows have hosted some of the biggest names in the cigar industry. JSU has monthly cigar manufactures that sponsor the group and have a lot of fun.
