Black Label Trading Company (BLTC) has announced the third iteration of their limited/annual Bishops Blend cigar—set to ship to select retailers in late April 2018.

I’m very excited about the third release of Bishops Blend. This is one of our most anticipated releases of the year and the 2018 vintage will not disappoint. The 2018 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.James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co.

Bishops Blend was first announced in June 2016 and was followed by a 2017 edition, with each release incorporating the same overall blend and sizes. The only noticeable change over the years has been the cigar’s price, increasing roughly $1.50.
