After shipping the lancero version earlier than anticipated in March this year, Black Label Trading Company is now shipping the rest of the vitolas to retailers.
This marks the fifth year of the annual Bishops Blend, and this version celabrates the anniversary. It is rolled at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua. The remaining vitolas being shipping at this time are the Corona Larga and Robusto.
“This has become our most anticipated release of the year. With that anticipation comes extra excitement when we are finally able to ship it to retailers. Bishops Blend 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.
