“I wanted to rate this cigar higher. The beginning and middle had some really nice flavors coming through. The smoke output on each draw was plentiful. The oily wrapper and chisel tip made it easy to smoke. All that, and then the final third hit a brick wall. Relights galore and harsh flavors just made the overall rating from me fall off a cliff. I would hope this stick was an anomaly in an otherwise solid blend. If I had stopped after the second third I would be happy.” -Matthew T. (A Huge Nerd)
“I really enjoyed this cigar. Even though it was a bit one dimensional, it had very good flavors and it’s size made for a nice quick smoke. I would definitely smoke another one of these if I was given an opportunity.” –Alan (Eulogy)
April 10, 2017 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce they are shipping Bishops Blend vintage 2017 to select retailers this week.
“This sample was not only a joy to look at but was also pleasant journey to smoke. This cigar presented creamy cedar, citrus, roasted nuts, sweet fruit, doughy bread, hay, and a touch of cinnamon. In addition to that.. through the nose was espresso, dark chocolate notes, hay, earth, and black pepper. If you have the time to smoke a cigar for 2+ hours grab a few of these, and however many hands this blend took to come to fruition was well worth the work.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)
“Overall I really enjoyed this cigar. Some great flavor notes throughout that changed up enough to keep me interested. For me this cigar was a little on the mild side and I would not want to smoke it outside of my first cigar of the day.” -Zane G. (Zane)
“Just a great cigar. Held my attention throughout, and it was a shame for it to end. For such a long burning smoke that’s a real accomplishment. Flavors were all right in my ballpark, but a little different than the typical peppery sweet blends that are typical of that profile.” -John I. (John I.)
