James Brown of Black Label Trading Group (BLTC) have several big changes impacting their brand in the coming year including new artwork and the rebranding of Boutiques Unified.
At the 2019 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR), Black Label Trading Company will be introducing new artwork and packaging for its core lines, including Royalty, Salvation, Lawless and Last Rites. All of the new designs were done by James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Company. The core lines have been available and on the market since 2013.
“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,” says Brown. “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.”
New 2019 Releases
Black Label Trading Company has announced the sixth annual release of its Morphine line. This latest release of Morphine features a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. It will be available in three sizes: Corona Gorda (box pressed) (5 1/2 x 46), Lancero (7 x 38), and Short Robusto (4 1/2 x 50). The cigar will have an MSRP that ranges from $10.50-$11.50 per cigar.
“I can’t believe it’s been six years since our first Morphine release. To celebrate we have brought back one of my favorite vitolas, the 7×38 Lancero. The other vitolas are old favorites also, the short Robusto and the Box Pressed Corona Gorda. This years vintage is rich and earthy with bold spice on the retro. The key note flavors are raisin, black cherry and a big blast of anise on the finish. This vintage is one of the best yet,” says Brown.
