Black Works Studio to Release Hyena

Black Works Studio has announced the second release of Hyena, a cigar handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra. Hyena is a limited edition cigar that will ship to select Black Works retailers beginning in May. It will also be available in Belgium and Germany.

In a press release, James Brown, creator of Black Works Studio, Black Label Trading Company and owner of Fabrica Oveja Negra, commented:

“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 and cedar.

“The finish is a blend of bitter cocoa, cream and 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.”

Hyena will feature an African Cameroon wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. It will be presented in two sizes: a 5 x 46 Corona Gorda and 6 1/2 x 42 Lonsdale. Each will come in 20-count boxes and will have an MSRP of $12.50 per cigar.

Hyena is available from Black Works Studio through Oveja Negra Brands. For more information, visit
