Black Label Trading Co. & Island Jim Collaborate for Leaf by James


Island Jim’s Leaf by Series will be getting another entry later this week in the form of Leaf by James, a cigar made in collaboration with James Brown of Black Label Trading Co. and its associated Fabrica Oveja Negra factory.

Leaf by James is a 6 x 50 toro using a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper over an Ecuadorian habano binder and Nicaraguan fillers.


The cigar will soft launch tomorrow at Jim Robinson’s—better known as Island Jim—Leaf & Bean store in Pittsburgh. It is expected to begin shipping nationally later this summer.

Pricing is set at $9.95.

“I’m excited to be working with Jim on this new Leaf project,” said James in a press release. “I think the bold style of Oveja Negra is a great addition to the portfolio.”

This is the third Leaf by cigar following Leaf by Oscar, with Oscar Valladares, and Leaf by Esteban, with Esteban Disla of Fabrica de Tabacos NicaSueño S.A.
