Oveja Negra Brands has announced its Black Works Studio Killer Bee Connecticut is returning as a core line product. The Black Works Studio Killer Bee Connecticut was first released in 2018 as a limited edition product.
“We are excited about the return of the Killer Bee Connecticut. It was one of our most popular cigars in the Killer Bee line. After several years of requests, we are happy to announce Killer Bee Connecticut will now be a core-line product. 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,” said James Brown, creator of Black Works Studio and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release.

The binder is Nicaraguan Habano and the filler is also all-Nicaraguan. it will be offered in one size – a 4 1/2 x 46 petite corona. The cigars will be presented in 24-count boxes.
