Black Star Line Turns to Oveja Negra for Next Line – Cigar News

Black Star Line Cigars chosen James Brown and Oveja Negra to partner for their next release: Rosewood 1923. Previously, Black Star Line has had lines made at Aganorsa Leaf and El Titan de Bronze.

I have always wanted to work with Oveja Negra. I am a huge fan of their cigars and actually James was one of the first people I reached out to when I was looking to enter the cigar industry. I ended up gaining JB’s respect through my hard work and persistence with what I have done thus far with Aganorsa Leaf.

Owner, Aric Bey

Rosewood 1923 is a dedication to the race riot that occurred in Rosewood, Florida.

Bey states, “I love the name because it not only pays homage to the 100 year anniversary of the massacre but also pays homage to my fraternity brother John Singleton who made a movie about Rosewood in the early 90s. I am a member of “Greater” Beta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc and Singleton passed away a few years ago.”

Rosewood 1923 is regular production cigar and is made in just one size, a 6×48 corona vitola. Orders for Rosewood 1923 will be taken at the PCA trade show and will be available at select retailers shortly after. Rosewood 1923 will be available in 20 count boxes and 20 count bundles. The blend uses a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Ecuadorian binder, and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. MSRP is $12.99.
