One of the first lines by Black Label Trading Company is returning. Benediction, a small-batch line that was introduced when Black Label Trading Company first launched. This time it will be a shop exclusive to Smoker’s Abbey in their Austin, Memphis, and Nashville stores
Benediction is a Nicaraguan puro highlighted by a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. The company says the Benediction has been tweaked from the original blend. It will be available in a Robusto (SRP $10.00) and Lonsdale (SRP $11.00) offering. Both sizes will be in 20-count boxes.
“Benediction is back! Very excited for the launch of the new Benediction for the Smokers Abbey stores. I created new artwork to reflect the aesthetics of the shops that combine perfectly with our BLTC design style. We’ve established a great relationship with the owners of Smokers Abbey over the years and have appreciated their support of our brands since the beginning. This just felt like a natural fit for our next shop exclusive. This release is a tweak of the original Benediction in two new vitolas. We stayed true to the original blend in body, strength, and wrapper but added a touch more spice and complexity,” says James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
