One of Black Label Trading Co.’s first limited editions is coming back as a store exclusive, as Ford on Fifth Cigars in Scottsdale, Ariz. announced that it has received a limited supply of the Deliverance.
The Deliverance line debuted in Nov. 2014 using a natural Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder as well as Nicaraguan fillers to produce a cigar the company described as medium to full bodied. It was being made at Tabacalerie Santiago de Nicaragua factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, though that has since changed as it being made at BLTC’s Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí.
“Since it’s first release in 2014, I’ve been eager to do another release of Deliverance,” said James Brown, founder of Black Label Trading Co., via a press release. “I wanted to put the Oveja Negra spin on this BLTC classic. I thought doing it as an exclusive for Ford on 5th was the perfect way to celebrate the opening of the shop,” he added.
The line returns in its original two sizes and price points, a 5 1/2 x 48 corona and a 7 x 38 lancero, both of which feature a “quadruple wrapped pointed cap” and are priced at $12 per cigar. The lancero is packed into 12-count boxes while the corona comes in 16-counts, both of which will bear the Ford on Fifth logo. The former is currently available while the latter will begin shipping in August; each is currently limited to just 50 boxes, though Anthony Cantelmo, owner of Ford on Fifth told halfwheel that he expects more will be available at some point. “We’re looking at making it a twice a year project,” he said.
Ford on Fifth, which opened on Dec. 22, 2016, is offering the cigars on its website for online purchasing as well as in-store customers.
