June 28, 2016 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the release of BISHOPS BLEND: Hand crafted in Estelí at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

BISHOPS BLEND will be debuting at this year’s IPCPR Trade Show.

The Bishops Blend has been a long time in the making, and I’m very excited for its release. I took a very different approach by using Pennsylvania and Connecticut Broadleaf in the filler. The end result is a very rich and intense flavor profile that highlights the Broadleaf but doesn’t overpower the Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Bishops Blend has a great balance between richness, spice and strength. As with all the BLTC limited releases, it is a unique smoking experience.James Brown, BLTC owner
