Black Label Trading Company has announced its second new project in the past week, a new store exclusive for Underground Cigar Shop in Fort Worth, Texas that is scheduled to arrive in November.
“BLTC and the Underground have a lot of history,” said James Brown, founder of Black Label Trading Co. via a press release, adding that “the Underground” was one of BLTC’s first big supporters whenthe brand was launched. “Making a cigar for the Underground is just a natural progression of the mutual support our companies have for each other,” Brown added.
The Catacomb is the first private label release for Black Label Trading Co. and comes from a “less is more” philosophy that Brown said he shares with Don Wiggins, owner of Underground Cigar Shop. The blend is a 100% Nicaraguan puro, using a maduro wrapper and a habano oscuro binder to create a medium to full bodied profile with intense flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee and spice.
The new cigar is being released in two sizes, a 5 x 54 robusto and 6 x 50, both of which come in ten-count boxes. Production is limited to 125 boxes of each size, with pricing yet to be confirmed, though a post on the store’s Facebook page indicates that both are $115 per box. The store has already opened up pre-orders for the cigar, with a deadline of Oct. 4 to make a pre-payment to secure a box.
Earlier this week, Black Label Trading Co. announced a new limited edition line called Deliverance, which is also slated for a November release but will be made available to all BLTC retailers. Both cigars are made at Tabacaleria Santiago de Nicaragua in Estelí, Nicaragua.
