Black Label Trading Co. has a pair of cigars en route to retailers this week, the Deliverance Nocturne and the Deliverance Porcelain.
It’s the fourth release of the Deliverance Nocturne and returns using a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Pennysylvania. It’s being released in two sizes, a 5 x 56 Perfecto that comes in 20-count boxes, and the Short Salomon “Snub Nose,” a 4 3/4 x 40/56 figurado that comes in 18-count boxes. Both are priced at $10.50 per cigar, before taxes, with 500 boxes of each size produced.
New to the Deliverance line is Porcelain, which uses a Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua and Pennsylvania. It is being released in a 5 1/2 x 48 corona gorda vitola, with cigars priced at $10 and packaged in 16-count boxes. The company has limited Deliverance Porcelain to 650 boxes in its initial production run.
Both cigars are made at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.
In a press release, James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, said that the Nocturne “highlights everything I love about Pennsylvania broadleaf,” noting the wrapper’s rich, complex and bold earthiness highlights the unique blend, while the use of a Connecticut wrapper on Porcelain gives the cigar a different profile from what might be expected, noting that the new line is “geared towards our consumers.”
