After a one-year hiatus, Black Label Trading Co. will begin shipping the 2022 version of its Morphine to retailers next week.

Morphine uses binder and filler tobaccos from Nicaragua. Two sizes use a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, while the Robusto Torpedo Box Press uses dual San Andrés and Ecuadorian maduro wrappers. For 2022, the line is offered in three sizes, each limited to 800 boxes.

  • Morphine Corona Gorda (5 1/2 x 48) — $11 (Box of 20, $220)
  • Morphine Robusto Torpedo Box Press (5 x 54) — $11.50 (Box of 20, $230)
  • Morphine Lancero (7 1/4 x 42) — $12 (Box of 20, $240)

All Black Label Trading Co. cigars are made at the company’s factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, Fábrica Oveja Negra.

“I really missed not having Morphine around last year,” said James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Co., in a press release. “That was the first time since 2014 that we’ve not released it. I believe this year might be one of the best vintages so far. I’m most excited about bringing back one of my favorite vitolas, the 5×54 Robusto box press torpedo. The Robusto has the dual San Andrés & Ecuadorian Maduro wrappers, while the Corona Gorda and Lancero are full San Andrés wrapper.”

The most release of Morphine shipped to stores in December 2020.
