Cigar News: Black Label Trading Company Ships VIATICUM (BLTC) announced today they are shipping their small batch release LAST RITES VIATICUM this week. Is only available to retailers that attended IPCPR 2019.

“Last Rites has always been a special cigar to me. To celebrate our sixth anniversary, I wanted to do a Special Edition of the Last Rites. The Viaticum is an evolution of the Last Rites blend. It uses most of the same tobaccos but in different proportions and primings. It’s rich, dark and elegant just like Nicaraguan tobacco. We also box pressed the cigar like the original 2013 release,” says James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

LAST RITES VIATICUM is rolled at James Brown’s Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua. The blend uses an Ecuador Maduro wrapper, Honduras binder, and filler from Nicaragua and Honduras. It comes in one size, a 5 x 54 box pressed robusto. LAST RITES VIATICUM comes in boxes of 20. It sells for $15 a stick.
