Protocol Cigars has announced a new size in their Sir Robert Peel line, a Corona Gorda that measures 5 5/8 x 46. Sir Robert Peel is part of the company’s Lawmen Series. The new size includes both Maduro and Natural versions and will be round as opposed to the rest of the line’s box-press. Otherwise, the blends remain exactly the same.
MSRP for the Sir Robert Peel Corona Gorda in both wrapper choices will be $11.50 per cigar $115.00 per box. The cigar is rolled at La Zona in Esteli Nicaragua under the supervision of Hector Alfonso Sr. Like the rest of the line, the new sizes come in boxes of 10 and will be a regular production cigar.
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!

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!

Single stick and box purchases will be available in store and on the shop’s website at: https://theroyalleaf.net/collections/protocol. The Royal Leaf will be the first to sell the new size and after May 1st, the Protocol Sir Robert Peel Corona Gorda will be available nationally.
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!” Further added Kevin Keithan.
