PCA 2023 | Black Label Trading Company

Published by


One of the more impressive booths at this years Premium Cigar Association, Black Label Trading Company and Black Works Studios, brought some serious heat to the cigar market.

A centralized booth surrounded by all of the brands crafted out of the Oveja Negra Brands was full of new treats by both BLTC and BWKS. We had the chance to meet and interview with BLTC’s Co-Owners, Derrick Matthews, to discuss everything new for 2023 as well as taking a look at some core line expansions along the way.

What’s new to 2023 with these guys? Four of the core lines with Black Label Trading Company; Salvation, Last Rights, Royalty and Lawless all get a new size. A traditional Robusto which BLTC has coined them “Robusto Real.”

In addition, BLTC is debuting the brand new Madonna Negra, a cigar blend that celebrates 10 years of BLTC in the market.
