Black Label Trading Co. is about to release the fourth installment of its limited edition Morphine line, returning in three sizes from previous years’ editions.
“Since this is our fourth vintage of Morphine, I decided to pick my favorite vitolas from the last three years,” said James Brown, the company’s founder.
- Black Label Trading Co. Morphine Short Robusto (2017) (4 1/2 x 50) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
- Black Label Trading Co. Morphine Lancero (2017) (7 1/4 x 42) — $11 (Boxes of 12, $132)
- Black Label Trading Co. Morphine Corona (2017) (5 1/2 x 42) — $10.50 (Boxes of 18, $189)
The Corona was released in 2014, the Short Robusto in 2015 and the Lancero was released last year.
Each size will come in different box-counts, with the Corona coming 18 to a box, the Short Robusto in 20-count boxes, and the Lancero will be packed in 12-count boxes. Each size will have 400 boxes produced for a total of 20,000 cigars.
The blend remains the same, with a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder and fillers from Nicaragua, with Brown calling this year’s vintage a bold and full bodied blend that is rich, complex, and balanced. The cigars are produced at the company’s Fabrica Oveja Negra factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The cigars will be available at select Black Label Trading Co. retailers beginning June 16.
