The sixth installment of Morphine by Black Label Trading Company is on its way to retailers.
The line, which uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan habano binder and Nicaraguan filler, has been an annual release since debuting in 2014, when it was released with the intention of adding a big and bold blend to the company’s portfolio. “This years vintage is rich and earthy with bold spice on the retro,” said James Brown, creator of Black Label Trading Company and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra, in a press release. “The key note flavors are raisin, black cherry and a big blast of anise on the finish,” he continued, adding that that he considers this year’s vintage one of the best yet.
This year, Morphine is being offered in three sizes:
- Black Label Trading Company Corona Gorda Box Press (5 1/2 x 46) — $10.50 (Boxes of 18, $189)
- Black Label Trading Company Lancero (7 x 38) — $11.50 (Boxes of 12, $138)
- Black Label Trading Company Short Robusto (4 1/2 x 50) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
The company produced 450 boxes of each of the three sizes, with the cigars made at Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.
