The latest limited edition from Black Label Trading Co. is on its way to stores, as today the company announced that Boondock Saint is shipping to select retailers this week.
The cigar wears a Pennsylvania broadleaf wrapper, with a Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Connecticut, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania. It is available in two sizes, which are made at the company’s factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra, in Estelí, Nicaragua:
- BLK WKS Boondock Saint Corona Larga (6 1/4 x 46) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
- BLK WKS Boondock Saint Robusto (5 1/4 x 50) — $10 (Boxes of 20, $200)
“The Boondock Saint is a perfect example of a balanced cigar,” said James Brown, founder of BLK WKS, in a press release. “The profile is rich, complex and bold, with tons of subtle flavors. The cigar is both strong and refined, with a very elegant finish. The Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper combined with the Connecticut Broadleaf & Nicaraguan filler create flavors of anise, clove, dark fruits, bitter cocoa and earth.”
The line got a very limited release in August 2016 ahead of the FDA’s deadline for having new cigars on the market. The widespread release isn’t much bigger, with just 500 boxes of each size being produced.
The cigar was also on display in Black Label Trading Co.’s booth during the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
