Black Label Trading Company has announced it is shipping its Corona Larga and Robusto sizes of its Bishops Blend 5 Year Anniversary line. These two sizes join the Lancero size that was shipped last month.
Bishops Blend has an annual release under the Black Label Trading Company brand. The Corona Larga (6 1/4 x 48) and Robusto (5 x 48) have been staple sizes since Bishops Blend made its debut in 2016. The Lancero size was released last month ahead of the Corona Larga and Robusto to encourage retail sales during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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, in a press release.
