2020 Marks the five year anniversary of Black Label Trading Company’s Bishops Blend. Instead of assigning a year to the release like other years, this is labeled as the 5 year anniversary. It is also coming in a new limited edition vitola to the line, lancero. The company says they are still making the other sizes, but they have been postponed. Black Label Trading Company cigars are rolled at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua.
“I worked with a lot of vitolas when developing the Bishops Blend and I’m very excited to release the Lancero for the five year anniversary. Like the previous vitolas, the lancero boasts big bold flavors of anise, pepper, raisins and a sweet earthiness on the finish. It is very complex and extremely refined. As with the past vintages, the broadleaf fillers shine at the forefront and are perfectly balanced by the Nicaraguan filler tobaccos,” said James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
