Black Star Line Cigars has joined forces with James Brown and Oveja Negra to bring Rosewood 1923 to the market. Owner Aric Bey says, “ I have always wanted to work with Oveja Negra. I am a huge fan of their cigars and actually James was one of the first people I reached out to when I was looking to enter the Cigar industry. I ended up gaining JB’s respect through my hardwork and persistence with what I have done thus far with Aganorsa Leaf.” Rosewood 1923 is a dedication to the race riot that occurred in Rosewood, Florida. Bey states, “ I love the name because it not only pays homage to the 100 year anniversary of the massacre but also pays homage to my fraternity brother John Singleton who made a movie about Rosewood in the early 90s.
I am a member of “Greater” Beta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc and Singleton passed away a few years ago.” Rosewood 1923 is regular production and comes in corona 6x48 vitola. Orders for Rosewood 1923 will be taken at PCA and will be available at select retailers shortly after PCA. Rosewood 1923 will be available in 400 20 count boxes and 100 20 count bundles.
The blend consists of Mexican San Andres wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. MSRP $12.99. Black Star Line Cigars can be found at booth 15111 at PCA this July.
