The Black Label Trading Co. Bishops Blend 5 Year Anniversary Corona Gorda has a consistently good flavor profile from start to finish. The 5 Year Anniversary release seemed to be a bit of a departure from previous annual releases. This cigar will appeal to BLTC fans and the reduced strength and body should bring in a wider audience of cigar smokers.
This is the fifth-year anniversary of Bishops Blend in the Corona Larga and Robusto vitolas. The Lancero vitola was released earlier this year. By releasing one of its top selling Limited Editions, BLTC hopes to encourage sales for its retailers in this difficult time.

The 2017 Bishops Blend has an extremely rich and sophisticated profile. It is a bold cigar with exceptional balance and complexity. Subtle spice is combined with earth, bitter sweet chocolate and anise.
Based on the chocolate note alone, the cigar is good and is worth anyone's time. The earthiness and spice levels did nicely round out the profile but didn't fully capture the moment. Even with all that said, I'd smoke the cigar again just to taste the wonderful chocolate notes.
