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.

Black Works Trading Co. is distributed by Boutiques Unified.

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.
