Bishops Blend 5th Year Anniversary Lancero is Black Label Trading Company’s next shipment to select retailers in hopes to help their sales during the COVID-19 outbreak. Handcrafted at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua the blend features an Ecuadorian habano maduro wrapper, Ecuadorian habano binder, with a Nicaraguan, Connecticut and Pennsylvania broadleaf filler. This lancero (7 x 42) will come in a 12-count box with an MSRP of $12.00. 150 boxes have already been put into production with only this vitola being made; other vitolas have been postponed for now.
“I worked with a lot of vitolas when developing the Bishops Blend and I’m very excited to release the Lancero for the five year anniversary. Like the previous vitolas, the lancero 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.
