S & R by Black Works Studio

Of course the first thing that crosses your mind when you see this cigar is “What does S & R stand for?” because it’s nowhere on the box. But take a deeper look at the label, there’s a snake’s head…and near the edge where it’s glued to itself is a tiny rainbow. My mind goes back to Wes Craven’s 1988 black magic thriller “The Serpent and the Rainbow”. Now while I didn’t feel like my body was being taken over by voodoo spirits, I was intrigued by this deviation from what I’ve come to expect from a Black Works Studio cigar as they dwell in much “darker” tobaccos.

Black Works Studio is a cigar line of Black Label Trading Company, which is one-third of Boutiques Unified.
