Black Label Trading Company, Black Works Studio 2019 IPCPR




Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) debuted the new artwork and packaging for its core-line at this year’s IPCPR in Las Vegas.

Royalty, Salvation, Lawless and Last Rites have each been given unique artwork designed by James Brown, creator of BLTC.
These cigars are part of the original core-line that BLTC launched in 2013.



Benediction was also part of the original core-line but will be replaced with Porcelain to complete the spectrum of BLTC’s five core-line cigars.
New Packaging will begin shipping after IPCPR.

“I’m very excited for the re-boot of the BLTC Core Line. Black Label is celebrating its six year anniversary and it was time to change things up a bit.
I believe every cigar has it’s own personality and tells a story.

I wanted to give our core products the chance to tell that story through unique artwork for each line.

It was also time to tweak the blends a bit.

The blends didn’t change, I just played with different proportions of the original tobaccos creating a new, unique version of the cigars,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.



Last Rites Viaticum was available to BLTC retailers at this years IPCPR.



This is a small batch release offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to retailers attending IPCPR 2019.

Shipping will commence this fall.

“We wanted to release a cigar exclusively for IPCPR attendees as a way of showing our appreciation for the retailers who come to support our brands and the show.

Last Rites has always been a special cigar to me.

It was the first cigar I blended on my own, and I blended it to my personal tastes.

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 priming’s.” said James Brown.
