June 27, 2018— Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) is pleased to announce the release of YELLOW JACKET: Hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

YELLOW JACKET will be available at select BLK WKS retailers for a limited time. This is a small batch release offered on a first come first serve basis to retailers attending IPCPR 2018.

“We wanted to release a cigar exclusively for IPCPR attendees as a way of showing appreciation for the retailers who come to support our brands and the show. We have been saving this release for a special occasion and with the decline in retailer attendance, we thought the time is now. The Yellow Jacket is a cigar that I blended with the original Killer Bee, so I’m very excited to finally have it released as a great addition to the Killer Bee line and the BLK WKS portfolio. With similar profiles to the Killer Bee, it may not be what you expect from a typical Connecticut cigar. The Connecticut wrapper gives an added creaminess and changes up the spice components quite a bit. Yellow Jacket is very complex and balanced,” said James Brown, creator of BLK WKS and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

YELLOW JACKET will be shipping in limited quantities to select BLK WKS retailers in the fall.

  • Wrapper: Connecticut and Ecuado Maduro swirl cap & closed foot
  • Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
  • Filler: Nicaragua
  • Petite Corona – 4.5 x 46 (20 count) MSRP $10.00
