Protocol Cigars has announced a new shop exclusive cigar for Omertà Cigar Company in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma: The Law. Protocol tries to capture the spirit of the shop and marry it with their law enforcement theme with all their shop exclusives. In this case, they went back to Oklahoma City’s history with the Wild West and Cowboys, hence, The Law. The Law was a term often used in old spaghetti western movies to describe law enforcement officials such as sheriffs, marshals, and other lawmen.
The Law will be an annual limited edition. This year 400 bundles of 10 were made in one size, a 5 x 52 robusto. The blend uses a Mexican San Andreas Maduro wrapper, Condega binder, and Esteli and Jalapa fillers. Like most other Protocol cigars, this is rolled at The La Zona Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua and was blended by Hector Alfonso Sr. The cigar is described as rugged and rustic, like the Wild West. It is full-bodied with a small pigtail on the head and a closed foot. The Law is packaged in a brown paper bundle and sells for $95 for 10 cigars.
We wanted to give The Law a rustic look, something you would think you would have seen cowboys smoke in the Wild West. The look, the feel of the cigar in your hand, and when you smoke it screams the Wild West! This is a cigar you would think any Lawmen in the Wild West era would smoke while trying to capture their bounty!
Juan Cancel, Co-owner and founder
We worked tirelessly to give this project a rustic Wild West feel! The end result truly delivers. The cigar is rugged and bold, beefy, full bodied, full flavored and has full aroma with a long finish.
