Black Label Trading Company’s latest small batch release Santa Muerte is now heading to select retailers. Santa Muerte is a figure associated with the Day of the Dead celebrations. This release of Santa Muerte is timed with these celebrations – typically held from October 31st to November 2nd.
“This is our first year to produce Santa Muerte. It features six filler tobaccos which create a very unique and rich flavor profile. You experience layer upon layer of coffee, malt, spice and cocoa. I have been working on this blend for a long time and am very excited to share it with the public. As the name suggests there is a Day of the Dead theme, this cigar is a tribute to those no longer with us,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
The blend features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and binder over a mix of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and San Andres tobaccos. Santa Muerte will he offered in two sizes: Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 48, SRP $8.50) and Robusto (4 3/4 x 52, SRP $8.50). Both sizes are packaged in 20 count boxes. The cigar is made at the company’s Fabrica Oveja Negra facility in Esteli, Nicaragua.
