Cigar News: Protocol Cigars Announces the Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit (CCU)

Protocol Cigars announced today, the release of The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit. This is the first new addition to the Protocol Core Line since the release of the Protocol Official Misconduct in 2018.

Keeping with the company’s law enforcement theme, the Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit is done to honor those that protect the world from cyber criminals. The mission of the CCU Investigation squads are to conduct and assist in investigations where computers, networks, telecommunication devices, and other technological instruments are the vehicle or target for the commission of criminal acts against network resources critical to the function of corporate or government entities. 

The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit pays homage to co-owner Kevin Keithan and his day job. Kevin works in internet security. In today’s announcement, Juan Cancel said:

“Kevin is a great addition to Protocol Cigars. Ever since Kevin has stepped out of the shadows and into the spotlight, we wanted to do a special Protocol Cigar line in his honor. I can’t think of anything more fitting than the Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit.” 

The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit will be manufactured at the La Zona Cigar Factory in beautiful Esteli, Nicaragua under the watchful eye of Erik Espinosa. This is the fifth Protocol Core Line release.

The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit has a blend described as:

  • Wrapper: Nicaraguan Rosado Habano 
  • Binder: Nicaraguan
  • Filler: Nicaraguan

Expressed in a (6.5 x 48) Boxed Pressed Short Churchill vitola, the Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit will come packaged in 10-count boxes similar to the rest of the Protocol Core Line. MSRP has been set at $10.50 per cigar and a box costing $105.00.

Kevin Keithan commented:

“This is a great size. We released the Protocol Probable Cause in this size and it was absolutely phenomenal! We wanted to revisit this extraordinary vitola on a very special release which I hold dear to my heart. The blend will be a Nicaraguan puro with a Rosado Habano wrapper.

It will be creamy and smooth yet a good punch in the mouth. This will make a great addition to the Protocol Core Line. We are excited to present this to market. We hope our supporters enjoy them as much as we do. The Protocol Cyber Crimes Unit fits perfectly with the look and feel of the Protocol Core Line. But ultimately it is the flavors that fit perfectly in the core line portfolio.“
