Black Label Trading Company will have something new for fans on store shelves in the coming days, as the company is set to begin shipping the third release of the Deliverance Nocturne to retailers this week.

“The crop of Pennsylvania tobacco we received this year is exceptional, the Nocturne highlights everything I love about Pennsylvania broadleaf,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, via a press release. He called this year’s vintage “rich, complex, and finishes with a bold earthiness,” adding that it offers a balance between strength and flavor.

The Deliverance Nocturne uses a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper and a Nicaraguan habano binder, with Pennsylvania ligero alongside Nicaraguan leaves in the filler. It is offered in three sizes:

The Nocturne is handcrafted at BLTC’s factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra, in Esteli, Nicaragua. The company is producing 500 boxes of each size.

The line debuted in 2015 as an extension to the Deliverance line, which has since become a store exclusive for Ford on Fifth in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Black Label Trading Co. is distributed by Boutiques Unified.

Update (Dec. 11, 2017) — Production numbers were added to this story after being confirmed by a company representative.

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.
