Black Works Studio will add to its growing families of Hymenoptera-themed releases. That’s the name of the scientific order that includes wasps, bees, hornets and ants for those without a biology degree.

The latest will be Yellow Jacket, a 4 1/2 x 46 petit corona, that shows off some of the artistry Fabrica Oveja Negra has become known for. The cigar uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with Ecuadorian maduro accents and a swirl cap and closed foot. The binder is Nicaraguan habano and the fillers are Nicaraguan.

It will be released at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, offered first come, first served to the retailers that attend the show.

“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,” said James Brown, creator of Black Works Studio, in a press release. “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.”

Pricing is set at $10 per cigar and it is offered in boxes of 20. Yellow Jacket is expected to ship in the fall. Production is limited to 500 boxes.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
