At the 2021 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Oveja Negra Brands showcased the 2021 edition of its Black Label Trading Company Last Rites Viaticum. This year’s edition will introduce two new vitolas into the limited-edition line.

Viaticum was introduced two years ago at the IPCPR Trade Show. It was a cigar introduced to commemorate Black Label Trading Company’s sixth anniversary. It’s an offshoot of Black Label Trading Company’s Last Rites line. Viaticum uses the same tobaccos as Last Rites, but uses different proportions and incorporates different primings.

The blend features an Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper over a Honduran Habano binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco. It was introduced in 2019 in a 5 x 54 box press. For 2021, Viaticum brings in two new box-pressed sizes – a 6 x 48 Toro and a 6 3/4 x 40 Lancero. Viaticum is expected to ship later this summer.
