Over the years, we have urged everyone to sign-up for the CRA(Cigar Rights of America). They continually fight for our rights to enjoy cigars! If you haven't joined them, now is the time to. The FDA has acknowledged that they are going to attempt to regulate the premium cigar industry. This is the worst case scenario, unfortunately. With the FDA rules in effect, for example, we would no longer be able to give away free cigars. Blends of cigars will be subject to an application where the FDA may allow or disallow the manufacturing of particular cigars. That means we could be seeing the same old same old from every cigar maker and not be able to enjoy the creativity expressed through tobacco just because the FDA doesn't deem it fit for consumption weather it be too strong or even using tobacco grown in certain locations. This will most definitely stifle the experimental cigar lines out there like certain small batch companies often do. This is the time to act and we whole heartedly encourage you to visit www.cigarrights.org and sign-up.
Even if you do not sign-up(although please do and support them), they have an "Action Alert" button that will aid you in getting a message out to your state reps and congressional representatives. This is not a drill and this industry faces a very hard battle....help out on the front lines and lets save cigars as we know it!

Black Label Trading Company has been a staple cigar in the boutique
cigar industry in the past year. They have a way of producing cigars
that combines many ideals. They aren't neccesarily a "small batch"
manufacturer however they do not create a massive amount of stogies
all at once. What this does is let them focus on the quality of their smokes
without getting neck deep in production! they also like to try many
different flavor profiles and strengths that appeal to a large amount of
smokers who don't wish for the same old cigar.
