bishop-le-pageJune 28, 2016 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the release of BISHOPS BLEND: Hand crafted in Esteli at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

BISHOPS BLEND will be debuting at this year’s IPCPR Trade Show.

The end result is a very rich and intense flavor profile that highlights the Broadleaf but doesn’t overpower the Nicaraguan tobaccos. The Bishops Blend has a great balance between richness, spice and strength. As with all the BLTC limited releases, it is a unique smoking experience,” says James Brown.

BISHOPS BLEND cigars will be available in limited quantities at select BLTC retailers at the end of July, 2016.

kb-imageJune 22, 2016 — Black Works Studio (BLK WKS) is pleased to announce the upcoming release of GREEN HORNET: Hand crafted in Esteli at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

GREEN HORNET will be debuting at this year’s IPCPR Tradeshow and will be released in small batches throughout the year.

“It’s never easy following up your biggest hit, but I think the Green Hornet is the perfect addition to the Killer Bee Line. The Green Hornet started as an event only cigar, however after seeing the response from consumers and retailers we knew it had to become a regular release.

The blend is a touch stronger than the Killer Bee to compliment the larger vitola and the closed Candela foot creates a very unique profile from the first puff. The Green Hornet is big, bold, rich and spicy. Everything you expect from a cigar in the Killer Bee lineup,” said James Brown.

GREEN HORNET will be available in limited quantities at select BLK WKS retailers at the end of July, 2016.

  • Country of Origin: Nicaragua
  • Wrapper: Ecuador Maduro w/a Candela linear cap & closed foot
  • Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
  • Filler: Nicaragua
    • Robusto – 5 x 48 (20 count) MSRP $9.50
