Black Works Begins Shipping Killer Bee Shaolin & New Rorschach Vitola

August 31, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) will begin shipping the new Limited Release; Killer Bee Shaolin and the new vitola for Rorschach in September. Both were featured at this years’ PCA Tradeshow.

Killer Bee Shaolin is a small batch release that was offered to those retailers who placed an order at the PCA 2022 Tradeshow. Rorschach was first released in 2015 with the launch of BLK WKS.

“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.  Also being released is the new vitola for Rorschach. Rorschach has become one of our most popular cigars and fans of this cigar will enjoy it in a short robusto,” says James Brown, creator of BLTC/BLK WKS and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
