If you have followed me over the last few years you know that I am a HUGE fan of this factory, the people behind it and the cigars coming out of the factory. I found them in 2015 and to see the continued rise and success has been amazing and no surprise at all. I am very happy to share the following information and if you don’t know about them, we can point you to some great shop that carry them and offer discounts. Congratulations to James, Angela, Stephanie and the rest of the Oveja Negra team.

I could not be happier for owner Benjamin Holt. I have interacted with Ben through social media and through BLTC/ BLK WKS which he is a rep for and I am really excited to watch this journey unfold.

“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,” says James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
