Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) will show off a new cigar at this year’s PCA trade show in Las Vegas: Killer Bee Shaolin. SHAOLIN is a small batch release offered on a first-come, first-served basis to BLTC/BLK WKS retailers attending PCA 2022. The cigars will ship later this summer. Shaolin, like Killer Bee is an homage to the Hip Hop group Wu-Tang Clan.
The Killer Bee line is in a constant state of evolution. It lends itself to a lot of different variations and the next one in line is the Shaolin. The Shaolin is a slightly tweaked version of the Killer Bee blend wrapped in a mix of Mexican San Andres, Connecticut, and Candela. The result is a bold but elegant cigar that has layers of complexity.

Killer Bee Shaolin uses three wrappers: Mexican San Andrés, Connecticut, and Candela. The binder is a Honduran Habano and the fillers come from Nicaragua. It is offered in one size, a 5.5×46 Belicoso in boxes of 24 that sell for an MSRP of $13.50 per cigar.
