Let’s start with – this is Phenomenal… This new size is Juan Cancel’s favorite vitola!
Protocol Cigars is proud to announce the first line extension in the Lawmen Series. The Sir Robert Peel, both natural and maduro, will be offered in a Corona Gorda 5-5/8 X 46 format.
This time however, the company has gone to a round format as opposed to a box pressed format like it’s predecessor. The blends are exactly the same as the original offerings. The Protocol Sir Robert Peel Natural will have the Ecuadorian Rosado wrapper, while the Maduro will have the Pennsylvania Broadleaf. Like the original release both will have the same exact Nicaraguan binder and filler.
The blends are disclosed as:
- Wrapper: Ecuadorian Rosado (Natural) – Pennsylvania Broadleaf (Maduro)
- Binder: Nicaraguan
- Filler: Nicaraguan
The Protocol Sir Robert Peel will be offered in 10 count boxes and will be a national ongoing full production release. The MSRP for the Sir Robert Peel Corona Gorda in both offerings will be $11.50 per single stick and a box at $115.00.
The cigar is being produced at La Zona in Esteli Nicaragua under the watchful eye of Hector Alfonso Sr.
Juan Cancel, co-owner and founder stated the following:
“The Sir Robert Peel was such a different project for us. We wanted to do something out of our comfort zone. It has been such a huge success that we want to expand the Lawmen Series with not only the Protocol Eliot Ness, but also with the Sir Robert Peel Corona Gorda. I can’t think of a better size to expand the Sir Robert Peel Line than with a Corona Gorda!”
Kevin Keithan, co-owner added:
“This cigar in the Corona Gorda Size is absolutely fantastic. If your a fan of the original Sir Robert Peel, then you are going to adore this vitola. You taste so much more of the wrapper in the Corona Gorda. I think people will be very pleased!”
The Release Party
The company is planning a release party at The Royal Leaf Cigar Shop, located at 118 N. High Street, Millville, NJ 08332, 856-300-2674. This event will be on Saturday, April 17th, 2021, starting at 5pm until close. Single stick and box purchasing will be available in store and on the shop’s website at: https://theroyalleaf.net/collections/protocol.
This shop will get exclusivity from the day of the event until May 1st, 2021. After May 1st, the Protocol Sir Robert Peel Corona Gorda will be available nationally. Protocol Cigars are always thinking of creative ways to try and help their smaller brick and mortar partners, especially during these difficult times.
In closing, Kevin Keithan notes:
“Being the first shop to make these cigars available to the public will help this brick and mortar shop get ahead a bit. The brick and mortar is the back bone of the cigar industry and it is important to help them out however we can!”
