Black Label Trading Co. is set to launch the fourth annual iteration of the Santa Muerte series, with the cigars shipping to select retailers this week.
The cigar’s name translates roughly to Saint Death, which is essentially the Mexican incarnation of the Grim Reaper of European legends. The cigars are released each year leading up to the Mexican holiday, Día de los Muertos, which honors and remembers the lives of those we’ve lost.
This year’s release has been rolled in corona gorda and short robusto formats, with 20-count boxes retailing for $200 MSRP apiece.
