Black Label Trading Company Announces Shipment of Bishops Blend 5 Year Anniversary


May 11, 2020 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the shipment of Bishops Blend 5 Year Anniversary to select retailers. Bishops Blend is hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica de Oveja Negra.

This is the fifth-year anniversary of Bishops Blend in the Corona Larga and Robusto vitolas. The Lancero vitola was released earlier this year. By releasing one of its top selling Limited Editions, Black Label Trading Company hopes to encourage sales for its retailers in this difficult time.

“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.

BISHOPS BLEND will be available at select retailers.
