In a press release, Black Label Trading Co. creator and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, James Brown, commented: “La Madonna Negra is a culmination of things I’ve learned over the last decade of cigar making. It’s a cigar that not only represents Black Label but also represents who I am today as a cigar maker. It’s bold, as a BLTC cigar should be, but it’s also very refined and elegant. It has layers of complexity and a very unique profile. A mixture of different spice elements combines with aromatic floral notes to create something unexpected. I’m very proud of the result.”

La Madonna Negra is available in three sizes: Rothschild, 4 1/2 x 48; Corona Gorda, 5 1/2 x 50; Robusto, 5 x 54. Each of these vitolas is box-pressed. There will also be a Collection Box containing 32 cigars, with the allocation being decided via a lottery drawing for retailers. The results will be posted on Facebook in the James Brown, Black Label Trading Co., and Black Works Studio groups.

When Black Label Trading Co. was launched ten years ago, the company aimed to provide exceptional cigars with unique flavor profiles and creative artwork. Founders James and Angela Brown moved to Nicaragua to manage and oversee their factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra, which took Black Label Trading Co. to a new level.

“We appreciate our retailers and customers that have supported us over the years and look forward to the next decade,” Brown added.
