Protocol Cigar announces the Bass Reeves, the third installment in its Lawmen series that will debut at the 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show in July.
The 6 x 52 box-pressed toro’s namesake was one of the first Black deputy U.S. marshal U.S. Marshals west of the Mississippi. Reeves arrested more than 3,000 criminals during his career in Arkansas and the Oklahoma Territory.
The cigar is produced at the San Lotano Factory in Ocotal, Nicaragua under the eye of Erik Espinosa. It comes in 10-count boxes that retail for $119.50 per.
The Bass Reeves maduro has a Nicaragua dark Habano wrapper and the natural has an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, both around Nicaraguan filler.
“Bass Reeves was blended with tobacco leaves from the different growing regions of Nicaragua,” Protocol co-owner Kevin Keithan said in a statement. “The maduro is a dark habano with sweet subtleness. The natural is a nutty sumatra with a delicious underlying spice note.”
Protocol’s Lawmen Series pays tribute to the men and women of law enforcement.
