As we reported from the 2022 PCA Trade Show, Oveja Negra Brands is bringing back the Black Label Trading Company Bishops Blend. This annual has been released for the seventh time and will be available to select retailers this month.

Bishops Blend features an Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper over an Ecuadorian Habano binder and filler consisting of both Connecticut and Pennsylvania Broadleaf as well as Nicaraguan tobacco. It is being released in the Corona, Robusto, and Lancero formats. All three sizes are packaged in 20-count boxes. Production comes from Fabrica Oveja Negra.

“We are very excited about this highly anticipated release. This is the seventh release of Bishops Blend and continues to be one of our most sought-after, limited annual releases. 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.
