Black Label Trading Co. is sending a new store exclusive, the Ligero Hawaii,  to R. Field Wine Co. in Hawaii next month.

It’s a 5 1/2 x 52 robusto that uses a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua, with production handled at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua. It is being offered in 10-count boxes with an MSRP of $10 per cigar and $100 per box. It’s being limited to 100 boxes.

“Ligero Hawaii is our second Hawaii exclusive and is a very bold, rich and complex cigar,” said James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra. He calls the cigar “a great representation of what BLTC strives for, full body and full flavor.”

R. Field Wine Co. is also home to the Black Label Trading Co. Last Rites Box Press Robusto, which  became a store exclusive for them in April 2017.

The cigar will debut on July 6 at an event held at the Prince Waikiki Hotel in Honolulu.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
