Aric Wimberly-Bey was born and raised in Glenwood, IL and is a Graduate of Bloom High School in Chicago Heights. He went on to get a Bachelors in Health Administration from Governors state, a MBA in Finance from St Xavier University, and MPH from Benedictine University. Aric is also a member of the “Greater” Beta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Inc. Aric has held several different jobs in different industries but received an elite opportunity to serve the City of Chicago by becoming a Chicago Firefighter.
Aric has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and always looked for the perfect business to start. In 2019 Aric started his business Black Star Line Cigars with the help of his friend Derrick Bell. The business idea came from his love of cigars and his determination to bring great tobacco to Chicago and the nation. The cigars are produced at the infamous El Titan De Bronze factory in Little Havana, Miami. This factory also produces Herrera Estelí Miami, La Palina Goldie, Warped cigars, and many other top-notch brands. El Milagro (the miracle) is the name of the cigar carried by Black Star Line Cigars because Aric felt it was a miracle to enter such a tough and competitive industry.
El Milagro comes in two different expressions. The first is a full body Toro sized cigar that has a Mexican San Andres wrapper, Ecuadorian Binder, and Nicaraguan filler. The second blend is a medium-full body Toro size Sun Grown Habano, Ecuadorian binder, and Nicaraguan and Dominican Filler. El Titan De Bronze rolls all cigars in the old Cuban way, which consists of a double binder and a triple cap. Additionally, Aric expanded the brand by adding an infused line. This line consists of Vanilla Bourbon, Rum, and Coffee flavors. All of the infused cigars are Robusto sized cigars and have been getting rave reviews.
