Black Label Trading Company announced today, via a press release, that shipments to authorized dealers of the Bishops Blend Vintage 2018 will take place by the end of this month. The cigars were made in the Fabrica Oveja Negra, owned and managed directly by the founder of the brand James Brown and his wife Angela, located in Esteli (Nicaragua).
The statement of the eclectic Brown is as follows: ” I am very excited about the third release of the Bishops Blend line; It’s one of the most anticipated releases of the year and I’m sure it will not disappoint. The cigar emits bold hints of anise, pepper, raisins and a sweet earthy finish; it is very complex and extremely refined. As for previous years, the filling is made with Connecticut and Pennsylvania Broadleaf tobaccos that perfectly balance themselves with those coming from Nicaragua “.
Bishops Blend Vintage 2018 will be available in limited quantities and at selected retailers. The cigar has an Ecuador Habano Maduro wrapper and an Ecuador Habano binder that contain Nicaraguan tobaccos, Connecticut and Pennsylvania Broadleaf. The available sizes will be: Corona Larga, 46 x 159 mm, and Robusto, 48 x 127 mm. The boxes will contain twenty cigars each, the suggested retail price is $11.50 for the first Corona Larga and $11.00 for the Robusto.
Black Label Trading Co. (as we wrote in more detail in our first issue of 2018) is a boutique brand whose mission is to redefine the standards of the production of cigars. The philosophy that distinguishes it is “less is more”, thanks to high quality standards and limited batches.
