Black Works Studio Ships Hyena 2022 – Cigar News

Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) has announced the second release of their Hyena line. Hyena came out in 2021 and was rated very highly in our blind testing scoring a 94, and placing #7 on our top 25 cigars of 2021. The 2022 edition of the cigar will ship to retailers later this month. It 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 balance 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.”

James Brown, creator of BLTC & BLK WKS and owner at Fabrica Oveja Negra
