Last year, Black Works Studio released the Killer Bee. We had the pleasure of smoking one at Oveja Negra while in Esteli, and to date it remains what I’d consider an excellent entry level cigar into Black Label Trading Company. Whereas the Killer Bee uses Ecuadorian Habano accents in the cap, the Green Hornet variation uses candela accents as well as a candela closed foot. The cigar also seems to be roughly half an inch longer than the original Killer Bee.
On First glance, the NBK is visually unique and appealing. The firm medium-brown body has a soft box press and a closed foot. Seams? What seams? This thing is flawlessly constructed. Topping it all off is a pleasant woody espresso aroma.
