At the 2018 IPCPR Trade Show, James Brown and Black Works Studio will introduce the Yellow Jacket. It’s a cigar that is highlighted by a Connecticut Shade wrapper. Black Works Studio Jacket will be available on a first come first serve basis to those 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.
Black Works Studio Yellow Jacket is also the first Connecticut Shade cigar under the Black Works Studio brand. The cigar is accented by an Ecuadorian Maduro swirl cap and closed foot. The cigar will be available in one size – a 4 1/2 x 46 petite corona. It will be presented in 20-count boxes with an MSRP of $10.00 per cigar.
