Protocol Cigars has announced a new cigar dedicated to cigar groups. The company has always had respect and involvement with many cigar groups. Protocol J Train Cigar is made for the Johnny Smokes Uncut Cigar Group. The J Train follows the Fat Ash and 5 Families releases dedicated for cigar groups. There were 3 releases of the Fat Ash for the Fat Ash cigar group. The 5 Families was a collaboration with 5 popular cigar groups including Distinguished Ruffians, Fat Ash, Smokehouse Gorillas, Sheep Dog, and BOTL PA Chapter.
Johnny Smokes Uncut Cigar Group was started by John Remer. John has been an avid cigar smoker for over 20 years. He loves cigars and his passion continues to grow with ever passing year. Johnny Smokes Uncut started May of 2020, during the high of the Covid 19 Pandemic. The Facebook Group is Johnny Smokes Uncut and the instagram page is @Johnnysmokesuncut.
“I was home like everyone else and wanted to create a cigar group that was a bit different. I wanted to create something bigger than just me. I wanted to create a place where our members can become close and grow into a family through engagement. The J Train was a dream that has become a reality. I couldn’t be happier about this cigar!”
“John has created something extraordinary here and we wanted to help him celebrate his accomplishments with a commemorative cigar. That is how the Protocol J Train was created.”
Kevin Keithan co-owner of Protocol Cigars.

The J Train will be available at the Caravan Cigar company website and in store initially, with the possibility of being available to other retailers in the future.
“Just like with any collaboration, we want to make the project feel special to those involved. We used the J Train theme because it John Remer’s nickname. To keep it with the law enforcement theme, we went with a Police Transit Patch for the packaging. We worked hand in hand with John so he felt like this was his baby! We love the way the cigar came out from the packaging to the cigar itself. We feel confident that the members of Johnny Smokes Uncut will be very please with how it all turned out.”
