I have been working on this blend for a long time and am very excited to share it with the public. As the name suggests there is a Day of the Dead theme and the cigar will be released Nov 1st to celebrate,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

July 8, 2015 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the upcoming release of DELIVERANCE NOCTURNE: Hand crafted at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua; Deliverance Nocturne features a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper and is available in two custom Salomon vitolas.

Deliverance Nocturne will be an addition to the Deliverance line, made throughout the year in small batches with additional vitolas being added.

“Nocturne is a very special cigar. Everything about this line is different for us. The vitolas, the blend style and the wrapper are things we have never done before. I have been working with Pennsylvania tobacco for a while and love its strength and richness. The Pennsylvania tobacco really elevates this cigar to the next level. I wanted something totally different for the vitolas, so we created our own, a slender Salomon with a blunt foot, or what we call a “Snub Nose”. This makes Nocturne a very time consuming cigar to make but these vitolas work perfectly with the blend,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC.

DELIVERANCE NOCTURNE features a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper with Pennsylvania Ligero and Nicaraguan filler & binder.
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Pennsylvania Broadleaf
Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
Filler: Nicaragua & Pennsylvania
Salomon “Snub Nose” – 6 ¼ x 36 x 56 (12 count)
Short Salomon “Snub Nose” – 4 ¾ x 40 x 56 (18 count)

MORPH2015
PRESS RELEASE
June 3, 2015 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the second release of MORPHINE: Hand crafted in Esteli at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

Black Label Trading Co. first released MORPHINE in June, 2014. This year MORPHINE was produced by BLTC’s factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli.

“MORPHINE was a huge success for BLTC last year. I believe it was the right cigar for our company at the right time, we had to bring it back in 2015! After playing with the blend at the new factory we decided to change things up a bit. The filler blend is now 100% Nicaraguan, with the quality of the Nicaraguan tobacco we have this year, it just made sense to highlight that in the blend. We also beefed things up a bit by adding a Short Robusto in the mix and changing the corona to a Box Pressed Corona Gorda. All vitolas still have the signature double wrapper of Ecuador Maduro and Mexican San Andrés Maduro.” Said Brown.

MOPRHINE cigars will be available in very limited quantities at select BLTC retailers June 27, 2015. Production of 100 boxes per vitola will be released.
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés Maduro
Inner Wrapper: Ecuadorian Maduro
Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
Filler: Nicaragua
Corona Gorda – 5.5 x 46 Box Press (16 count)
Lancero – 7 x 38 (12 count)

Oveja Negra


February 12, 2015 — Black Label Trading Company is proud to announce the formation of a new cigar factory; Fabrica de Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua. The mission of Oveja Negra is a complete focus on small batch premium cigars.

Black Label Trading Co. is taking the next step in small batch, boutique cigar manufacturing; taking ownership of the entire process. As the name suggests, Oveja Negra (Black Sheep), will do things differently.

“Starting our own factory was a natural progression of the brand. We needed the freedom to be as creative as possible and to have ownership of every process that goes into making our cigars. We have always been involved in every aspect of our production but now we can take it to the next level and ensure 100% quality from seed to ash,” stated James Brown, creator of BLTC.

Oveja Negra offers its clients a factory where small batch production is the norm, and quality is the priority. At Oveja Negra smaller brands and retailers wanting private labels can make a cigar without huge minimum orders.

“This is a tough industry for small companies. Its hard to get the attention you need to create a premium product. Our goal is to help support other boutique brands and grow the premium-cigar market,” stated James Brown.

Making a cigar for the Underground is just a natural progression of the mutual support our companies have for each other.

The focus was to create a limited production 100% Nicaraguan cigar using ultra premium aged tobaccos. Catacomb is a rich, earthy, elegant, Med/Full bodied cigar with intense flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee and spice.” James Brown

What I love about this cigar is that it’s gritty, raw and elegant all at the same time. The flavor profile is very diverse starting off extremely bold – combining earth, leather and cedar. As the cigar progresses you will notice a richness of cinnamon and cloves with a lingering salty sweetness.” Said James Brown

Morphine is exactly that. Everyone thought I was a little crazy when I explained the double wrapper idea but combining the Ecuadorean maduro wrapper with the San Andres elevated the cigar to a whole new level of richness and complexity.” Said Brown.
