Black Works Studio NBK
One cigar that does incorporate the wild skulls you've come to expect from the parent brand is the Black Works Studio NBK (or Natural Born Killer) with its epic saber-toothed tiger skull. But artwork doesn't make a stick smoke, so let's get into the nitty-gritty of this beast.
The craftmanship here is incredible. It starts with a best-in-class oiled-up Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro leaf. Beneath this, you’ll find a high-quality Nicaraguan binder holding snug long-filler tobaccos of the same origin. It’s a complex smoke with a killer draw and an even burn.
Get the Black Works Studio NBK revved up, and it’s all about the dark chocolate. As this note continues, its quickly joined by cedar, earth, and spice. So far, so good. You can tell that a lot of heart and soul went into this cigar. About halfway through, the spice is picking up while the dark chocolate serves as an excellent base. The burn and draw remain flawless. Toward the end, all the flavors equal out, with the spice still running the show. If you want to give your humidor an upgrade, get some of these tasty NBK cigars in there yesterday.
