While it was hard for Oveja Negra Brands to top the very busy 2019 season, two of its foundation brands each have a new limited release for this summer.
First up Black Works Studio has a new release for its popular Killer Bee line. This one is the Killer Bee Swarm. It’s the fifth blend of the Killer Bee line; joining Killer Bee, Killer Bee Green Hornet, Killer Bee Green Hornet Kato, Killer Bee Green Hornet Kato Hawaii, and Killer Bee Connecticut. The Killer Bee Swarm is the first Oveja Negra Brands cigar to use a Cameroon wrapper. In addition to the Cameroon wrapper, the cigar also has Maduro and candela accents around the cap. The cigar also utilizes a Nicaraguan Habano binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers. Killer Bee Swarm comes in one size – a 5 x 46 Corona. It is presented in 24-count boxes with pricing set at $10.50 per cigar. The cigar has been making its way to retailers already.
Meanwhile, the Black Label Trading Company brand is releasing a cigar called Super Deluxe. Super Deluxe will launch in three box-pressed sizes: Robusto (5 1/4 x 52), Lancero (7 x 42), and Rothchild (4 1/2 x 46). The cigar features a Mexican San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. Plans are for the Super Deluxe to hit retailers in mid-September. Pricing will range between $8.00 and $11.00.
These are limited production releases. Owner James Brown expects these to become part of the company’s annual limited production rotation at some point.
James Brown appeared on Prime Time’s Virtual Trade Show 2020 to discuss the releases.
