At the 2019 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, Black Label Trading Company will introduce a small batch release known as Last Rites Viaticum. It’s a modified version of Black Label Trading Company’s Last Rites blend. The cigar will be an exclusive offering to those retailers attending the Trade Show on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The blend features an Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper over a Honduran Habano binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. It will be available in one size – a 5 x 54 box press. It will be presented in 20-count boxes with pricing set $15.00 SRP per cigar.

“We wanted to release a cigar exclusively for IPCPR attendees as a way of showing our appreciation for the retailers who come to support our brands and the show. Last Rites has always been a special cigar to me. It was the first cigar I blended on my own, and I blended it to my personal tastes. It’s everything I wanted out of a cigar and a perfect representation of Black Label Trading Co. To celebrate our sixth anniversary, I wanted to do a Special Edition of the Last Rites. The Viaticum is an evolution of the Last Rites blend. It uses most of the same tobaccos but in different proportions and primings. It’s rich, dark and elegant just like Nicaraguan tobacco. We also box pressed the cigar like the original 2013 release,” commented James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra in a press release.

The 2019 IPCPR Trade Show opens June 29th, 2019 in Las Vegas Nevada.
