Black Works Studio’s Boondock Saint, a cigar first announced last year and introduced in a limited fashion, will be heading to retailers next month. The cigar is also expected to be showcased by Black Works Studio at next week’s IPCPR Trade Show opening July 11th in Las Vegas.
“The Boondock Saint is a perfect example of a balanced cigar. The profile is rich, complex and bold, with tons of subtle flavors. The cigar is both strong and refined, with a very elegant finish. The Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper combined with the Connecticut Broadleaf & Nicaraguan filler create flavors of anise, clove, dark fruits, bitter cocoa and earth. This blend highlights the many complexities in the broadleaf and Nicaraguan tobaccos used,” said James Brown, creator of Black Works Studio and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
The Boondock Saint features a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and fillers from Nicaragua, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. It will be available in two sizes – Corona Larga and Robusto. Production is described as limited – which is consistent with Black Works Studio’s small batch philosophy.
Boondock Saint joins NBK, Rorschach, Killer Bee, Sindustry, and Green Hornet as offerings by Black Works Studio.
The cigar is being produced at the company’s Fabrica Oveja Negra factory and is distributed by Boutiques Unified.
