Oveja Negra Brands has announced that Black Works Studio, a limited edition cigar that made its debut in 2021, is making a return in 2022 for another limited run. The company says the Hyena 2022 will ship to select retailers this month and will also be available in Belgium and Germany.

“Hyena received a lot of hype in 2021 and this year’s release will be no different. The 2022 Hyena is bold, spicy, very well balanced and a touch more intense than last year’s release. 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 Black Label Trading Company & Black Works Studio and owner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release.

The cigars are available in the same blend and sizes (Corona Gorda, Lonsdale) as were released in 2021.

The 2021 edition of the Black Works Studio Hyena Corona Gorda was selected as Developing Palates’ Cigar of the Year in 2021.
