“This one was really different, and that is a good thing. No more of the same old flavor profile here. Some unique flavors mixed with a great burn and tons of smoke output, that makes this a cigar I want to try again. I will be glad to find out what this one is.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
“I really enjoyed this cigar and I think most cigar folks will too. It was a medium-full strength experience and while the transitions were not ground breaking they were very good. This cigar tasted like a cigar; and what I mean by that is it had a very traditional profile with the earth, leather, oak, cedar and lets not forget various peppers. It never required a touch-up even though the burn at times was not pretty. This cigar definitely has the potential to make it into my regular rotation and I wouldn’t hand it out to my mooching friends as I would want them all to myself.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
“Wow. I was blown away by this smoke. It really hit everything a non-maduro needs to hit on my checklist for me to put it in my regular smoking rotation. The sweet flavor profile and excellent construction reminded me of the My Father Flor De Las Antilles, which is one of my all time favorite cigars. This would be a great smoke for sitting by a campfire, roasting s’mores and telling stories. Or it would also shine as an after lunch smoke, as it is not overly heavy in body or too spicy in taste.
I would buy a box of these, in this vitola if the price was right.” -Ryan (Youngryan216)
“Overall this cigar was not bad, although very one dimensional. Maybe with some rest it could be better.” -Craig (WyldKnyght)
“This was a very middle of the road smoke for me. There were no inspiring moments during the smoking experience. Very bland with a daunting size. I am not a bigger ring gauge cigar guy, but for the build, this cigar was better than most larger sticks.” -Steve (ThaGreatWazoo)
“Overall, this cigar is a home run. I know this was a Black Works Studio Killer Bee and I have smoked at least 20 of them since the release, however sitting back and taking notes on this cigar was a joy. Even though this vitola is a petite corona (4 1/2 x 44-46), it easily satisfies the palate and/or cigar itch. On the exhale we had a plethora of dark roasted malts, creamy chocolate, oak, hazelnut, baking spices, black pepper, and dry compact earth. Thru the nose was consistent throughout the whole cigar experience with dark floral notes and a spice laced sweetness. Store this cigar at low RH 62-64 to experience all this cigar has to offer. Kudos to James and torcedors at Fabrica Oveja Negra.” –Matt C. (Big Matt)
