Black Works Studio has been putting out some stellar releases, so when they announced the Intergalactic, I was thrilled. This cigar is a bit different from the normal powerhouses that Black Works Studio releases.  The Intergalactic is a  complex cigar with more layers of flavors than their previous releases.

“Intergalactic is a unique cigar for Black Works Studio. I would consider it in a more traditional wheelhouse in terms of its overall profile with a definite Oveja Negra twist. The blend starts with bold spice followed by herbal and cedar notes. The finish is a balance of different layers. The spice and earthy notes of the Nicaragua filler tobaccos are gently brought together with the creamy, subtle sweetness of the dark Sumatra wrapper. This cigar is both bold and subtle all at the same time.” says James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

I called up Jay Davis at Blue Smoke in Dallas, TX, and ordered a five-pack in both sizes:  robusto and corona gorda.  Both sizes retail for $10.50.  Let’s look at the blend:

  • Wrapper: Dark Sumatra
  • Binder: Ecuador Habano
  • Filler: Nicaraguan
  • Vitola:  Robusto
  • Size: 5.5×50 (20 count)
  • MSRP: $10.50
  • Factory:  Fabrica Oveja Negra

Final Score:  92
