Black Label Trading Company will begin shipping Bishops Blend to select retailers this May 2021. Bishops Blend is handcrafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra. This is the sixth release of Bishops Blend in the Corona Large and Robusto sizes. The Lancero size was first released in 2020.
Bishops Blend features an Ecuador Habano Maduro, an Ecuador Habano binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. This year’s Bishops Blend will be available in three sizes: Corona Large (6 1/4 x 46), Robusto (5 x 48), and Lancero (7 x 42). Suggested retail price per cigar will range from $11.50 to $12 per cigar, based on the vitola.
“We are very excited about this highly anticipated release. 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,” commented James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
