Black Label Trading Company Orthodox

At the 2024 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show, Oveja Negra Brand will introduce the Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) Orthodox. Oveja Negra Brands will offer this small batch release to retailers attending the 2024 PCA Trade Show on a first-come, first-served basis.

Produced at Fabrica Oveja Negra, Orthodox features a Mexican San Andres wrapper over an Ecuadorian Habano binder and all Nicaraguan fillers. Presented in 20-count boxes, Orthodox comes in three sizes: Toro, Corona Gorda, and Short Robusto.

“Orthodox is really about Black Label getting back to its roots. We’ve done a lot over the last ten years but at our core we are about highlighting the strength & intensity of Nicaraguan tobacco. That’s what I went for with the Orthodox. It’s extremely bold with spice throughout the palate and nose. Its intensity is balanced by flavors of dark fruits, cherries, raisins and finishes with star anise. This cigar is bold but very balanced and extremely complex,” says James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co./Black Works Studio and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release.

The PCA Trade Show opens March 23, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Oveja Negra Cigars plans to ship Orthodox in late April.
