This was the best boxed press cigar I have ever had…period. After smoking theBlack Label Trading Company’s (BLTC) Benediction I was very excited for BLTC’s Last Rites. It seems the Last Rites cigar is the cigar of cigars at BLTC. This cigar is a rare small batch with a Nicaraguan and Honduran Filler. A Honduran binder and topped off with a very dark brown aged Ecuadorian Maduo wrapper. In fact, this cigar is so small batched that BLTC only makes 500 boxes a year of this amazing smoke. Get them while they are hot!
As mentioned on BLTC’s website, the complex layers really are unforgettable. I tend to lean more towards full bodied cigars, so this was right in my wheel house of flavor and taste. Great smooth earthy tones and a bit of spice are noted in the Nicaraguan and strong Honduran tobacco filler. Do not smoke this cigar on an empty stomach because it will deliver a knock out punch to you. Make sure you are prepared because this cigar is the extreme opposite of light and fluffy.
