A Review Of Black Label Lawless: The James Dean of CigarsBlack Label Lawless: The James Dean of Cigars

Black Label Trading Company’s (BLTC) vision for all of its products is to “re-think standards for cigar-making.” The Black Label Lawless cigar is the epitome of this philosophy.

By definition, lawless means “not restrained or controlled by law.” Even BLTC refers to this stick as the “James Dean of Cigars.” In fact, it exudes the cool factor in every way possible.

First, let’s talk about the construction of this stellar stick. In a word, it’s beautiful. The signature BLTC skull label with white on black is cool enough unto itself, but the wonder doesn’t cease there. The label covers a perfectly veinless Ecuadorian Habano Rosado wrapper that is a gorgeous red-brown, earthy color, making the double bands pop, and the stick is slightly oily to the touch and perfectly shiny in appearance.  The binder and filler are both Nicaraguan, and the stick is described as being medium-full in strength. But that is where the typical description ends. 

Breaking the rules for the Black Label Lawless is the intriguing taste.  What was consistent in most reviews is that the first third is bold, spicy and rich, with a delightful cocoa powder influence. Upon hitting the second third, reviewers noted an infusion of woodiness, followed by a red pepper influence that begins to surface, giving the retrohale a fantastic spicy intensity.   The stick is described as being a slow burner, and aficionados agreed that it won’t require a touch up. These factors led to a unanimous take that aficionados would be able to sit back, reflect on the day, and savor this stick as the spiciness intensifies.

As with all their cigars, the Black Label Lawless is produced in limited quantities. There are only 1000 boxes produced each year, which has aficionados scrambling to get their hands on this gem.  The small production is due to the company’s philosophy that less is more. They select only the highest quality tobacco, and their master blender and expert hand rollers work hard to produce the unique flavors for which Black Label’s products are known. 

According to reviews, this outstanding cigar, with its rich, earthy flavors, was created with the expectation that it should be savored and enjoyed to the fullest. It is a stick that is made for those who deserve to slow down, kick back, and enjoy one of the most exciting and flavorful cigars they can get their hands on!
