At the 2023 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show, Black Star Line Cigars will introduce a regular production cigar called Mr. Fahrenheit. The cigar pays homage to firefighters as well as the late singer, Freddie Mercury of Queen. Black Star Line Cigars owner Aric Bey is a former firefighter. Mr. Fahrenheit is referenced in the Queen song, “Don’t Stop Me Now.”
“I am a retired Chicago firefighter and a huge fan of Queen so I thought this would be a great way to represent both. We will also be donating money from this release to Ignite the Spirit charity to help families of firefighters,” commented Aric Bey in a press release.
For the blend, Black Star Line Cigars’ turns to Hostos Quesada of Tabacalera La Isla to produce the cigar. The blend consists of a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Dominican binder, and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It will be produced in one size – a 6 x 46 Corona. The company says the initial production will be 5,000 cigars. Pricing is set at $11.99 per cigar.
While the cigar is being released in a Corona size, the blend actually got a soft launch in the form of a 5 x 50 Robusto at the NFG 23 event hosted by Underground Cigar Shop in March.
The PCA Trade Show opens July 7, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
