Black Label Trading Company Announces the Release of Bishops Blend Novemdiales to Select Retailers

September 12, 2023 By Kevin Acuff

Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the release of Bishops Blend Novemdiales to select retailers. Novemdiales is handcrafted at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua. It represents a revised iteration of the original Bishops Blend, by using a Pennsylvania wrapper with other slight revisions. Those that have grown to love this release will still recognize the distinctive flavors of the past with a fresh, nuanced perspective.

“Bishops Blend has been one of our most popular and sought-after releases. This year, to help celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Black Label Trading Co., we felt compelled to create a special edition. The Bishops Blend Novemdiales is an amped-up version of the traditional Bishop. We tweaked the blend a bit and went with a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper instead of the traditional Ecuador Habano Maduro. The Novemdiales will be available in vitolas not seen before in the Bishops Blend lineage. The result is a very rich, earthy, and intricate fusion of dark fruits, layers of spice, and a stout star anise finish,” said James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co. and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
