2020 marks the fifth release of Black Label Trading Company’s (BLTC) fan-favorite Bishops Blend cigar, which are now making their way to retailers in the Corona Larga and Robusto vitolas (following the release of a lancero format earlier this year).

BLTC hopes that the release will help boost sales activity for brick and mortar retailers during the difficulties of COVID-19 lockdowns.

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.James Brown, creator of BLTC

Of note, pricing has not increased since the cigar’s 2018 release.
