Black Label Trading Co. Deliverance lancero

Posted by Jack | in Black Label Trading Company | on 11 Dec 2014 | at 1:18 PM | 1227 views

I am SO behind on reviews!  James Brown of Black Label Trading Company hit me up about something the other day on Facebook and it reminded me that I owed him a couple of reviews.  So, today I selected his newest offering - The Deliverance.  This review only contains one mention of the 1972 film starring Burt Reynolds, Jon Voight, Ned Beatty, and Ronny Cox, and as it only appears in this introduction, you're past it now.  So, let's get smoking.... Construction: Deliverance is a very nice  looking cigar.  Long and slender with a nice lumpy shape under and veinless and mildly toothy wrapper - very rustic.  The band is a work of art.  All in all, James has some terrific cigars under his belt...

Black Label Trading Company Morphine Lancero

Posted by Jack | in Black Label Trading Company | on 03 Jun 2014 | at 5:40 PM | 2594 views

About a month ago, I was chatting with James Brown on Facebook about his upcoming release, the Morphine.  My original reaction was to think of the band from the 90's comprised of Mark Sandman on bass, Dana Colley on the bari-sax, and Billy Conway on drums.  A fantastic blues/jazz fusion group that were as addictive as their name sake, and one of my all-time favorite groups.  Never listened to them?  I will add some links to a few tracks at the bottom of the review for fun.  But James actually named the cigar after its potency.  He said, " actually the first time I smoked the blend it had me a little loopy - I had to sit down. I smoke about 5-6 cigars a... Continue reading »»

 


 

Black Label Trading Company Last Rites Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Black Label Trading Company | on 06 Apr 2014 | at 4:29 PM | 1716 views

Put the coins on my eyes, I have been given the Last Rites.  The rock star.  That is how James Brown, the owner of BLTC described the Last Rites to me.  That simple phrase certainly got my interest up....and finding a trio of them in a box on my doorstep was as exciting as opening birthday presents as a kid.  Honestly, I was expecting a giant cigar....but the Last Rites I was given is a box pressed robusto of ordinary proportions.  Considering they were in a bag with the rather massive Redemption 6x60, they looked small indeed.  Of course, good things come in small packages, so I was pretty stoked to have my Last Rites.  So, let's get smoking.... Construction: Ever unwrap a chocolate bar... Continue reading »»

 


 

Black Label Trading Company Benediction Robusto

Posted by Jack | in Black Label Trading Company | on 23 Mar 2014 | at 3:26 PM | 1806 views

Finally!  It's not below freezing outside and no white crap is falling from the sky!  What a winter it has been around here...heck, everywhere!  So, to celebrate this joyous occasion, I am sitting on the porch with a bottle of mineral water and a Black Label Trading Company Benediction.  After smoking the Lawless and being blown to smithereens by its complexity and craftsmanship, I decided the time was right for round two.  Let's get smoking.... Construction: An absolutely gorgeous red-brown and veinless wrapper leaf, no seams or other issues, oils so heavy you can see yourself in the reflection.  Just another beautiful cigar from BLTC.  Pre-light Aroma and Draw: An exceptionally sweet aroma comes from this cigar once removed from the cellophane.  I liken it...

Black Label Trading Company Lawless

Posted by Jack | in Black Label Trading Company | on 27 Feb 2014 | at 12:14 PM | 1873 views

The most excellent manager at The Wharf handed me some samples, which we call homework.  Two of the cigars looked vaguely familiar to me.  Black and white labels with some nice design, attractive looking tobacco.  Needless to say, I was intrigued.  I was handed two of these samples, Black Label Trading Company, and I chose the Lawless blend for the first review.  The Benediction will soon follow.  So, enough babbling here, let's get smoking. Construction: This is an exceptionally nice looking cigar.  The Habano Rosado wrapper leaf is a nice deep red-brown with loads of oils.  The seams are smooth and no veins.  The overall look of the cigar is very rustic and rather lumpy.  Honestly, a look I enjoy in any cigar.  The band...
