Last month, Oveja Negra Brands began informing retailers of a new offering under its Black Works Studio line known as Hyena. Yesterday, the company announced details around the release.
Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) becomes the latest Cameroon wrapped release for Black Works Studio. Last year the company released its first Cameroon wrapped cigar with the Black Works Studio Killer Bee Swarm. In addition to the Cameroon wrapper, the Hyena incorporates a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper and all-Nicaraguan fillers. Hyena will be available in two sizes: Corona Gorda (5 x 46) and Lonsdale (6 1/2 x 42). Both are in 20-count boxes. Hyena is a small batch limited edition cigar.
“Hyena is the latest addition to the BLK WKS portfolio. A truly unique cigar that is focused on showcasing a perfect balance between Nicaraguan fillers and the Cameroon wrapper. The profile is spice forward with white pepper & semi-sweet baking spices blended with herbal notes & cedar. The finish is a blend of bitter cocoa, cream & malt. Hyena is an extremely complex and balanced cigar and is a tribute to my wife’s and my many years of living in Africa,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC (Black Label Trading Company) BLK WKS and owner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release.
