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.

The one thing I regret about my years of living in Pa is that I did not know or get to meet Vince Hill and visit BNB Cigars. The beauty of social media is that it allows us to connect with people much easier. Vince has been a great supporter of the Cigar Hawk brand, blog, and we have developed a friendship via social media. Hopefully we get to hang out one day soon and enjoy some smokes together. I could not be any happier to see this event to celebrate 15 years in business. For those that don’t know, Vince and BNB Cigars are hands down one of the best shops for everything boutique in the cigar world. I wish I could make it there for the event because I know it will be amazing. Anytime Juan Cancel shows up to an event, it’s a party of a different level. “Ain’t no party like a Protocol Party”! Congratulations on 15 years and Cheers to many more!!

PRESS RELEASE – Black Label Trading Co. PRESS RELEASE June 17, 2019 —
Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) will be debuting new artwork and packaging for its core-line at this year’s IPCPR in Las Vegas. Visit Booth #2463 to see the display. Royalty, Salvation, Lawless and Last Rites have each been given unique artwork designed by James Brown, creator of BLTC. These cigars are part of the original core-line that BLTC launched in 2013. Benediction was also part of the original core-line but will be replaced with Porcelain to complete the spectrum of BLTC’s five core-line cigars. New Packaging will begin shipping after IPCPR. “I’m very excited for the re-boot of the BLTC Core Line. Black Label is celebrating its six year anniversary and it was time to change things up a bit. I believe every cigar has it’s own personality and tells a story. I wanted to give our core products the chance to tell that story through unique artwork for each line. It was also time to tweak the blends a bit. The blends didn’t change, I just played with different proportions of the original tobaccos creating a new, unique version of the cigars,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra. “Black Label Trading Company is redefining the standards for cigar making. With a less is more philosophy, Black Label Trading Co. creates hand crafted premium cigars of the utmost quality at their own factory in Nicaragua.” Visit BLTC Booth #2463 at this year’s IPCPR 2019 to place your orders. firstname.lastname@example.org.
