A few reviews back we were introduced to a newer brand, Black Label Trading Company, when we reviewed their stick, Lawless.  The Lawless stick impressed us, and made us anxious to try the other cigar they sent us for sampling, Last Rites.

This cigar features a dark brown slightly oily aged Ecuadorian maduro wrapper.  The wrapper is excellently applied and has minimal veining.   The BLTC Last Rites sports two bands, the traditional (aka badass) Black Label Trading Company band, as well as a foot band that reads “Last Rites.”

Flavor wise, I was impressed from the second I lit this cigar up until the second it burnt my lips and I finally had to lay it down.  Upon first light you are immediately hit with a strong and pleasant nuttiness.  As I smoked the cigar I also discovered some very nice earthy and wood notes, as well as a strong cocoa flavor to it.  The flavor of this cigar was so enjoyable, that I actually sent text messages to a few of my local shop owners telling them they need to look into this cigar while I was smoking it.

Burn wise it held up pretty well for a boxed pressed cigar which I typically always have an issue with.  The BLTC Last Rites only required one small touch up, other than that, it burnt all the way down flawlessly.

Buy it again?  Why do you think I sent messages to my local shop owners about this cigar?   The answer is most definitely yes!  I smoked two of these cigars for review, and am now walking around trying to figure out how I can get more.  Flavor was amazing, burn was good, everything you need to make a great cigar.  If your shop does not carry the Black Label Trading Company line, you probably need to tell them to check out this review.
