Black Label Trading Co. (BLTC) is preparing for the fourth release of Morphine, a handcrafted cigar made in Esteli, Nicaragua at Fabrica Oveja Negra, owned by the BLTC co-owner James Brown. Morphine was first released in 2014 as a limited release.
“Since this is our 4th Vintage of Morphine, I decided to pick my favorite vitals from the last three years. From the original 2014, I chose Corona. From 2015, the short Robusto and from 2016, the Lancero. I think the quality of tobacco in this year’s production speaks for itself,” Brown commented. “The 2017 vintage is extremely rich and complex. It’s bold, full bodied and incredibly balanced. The depth and complexity of flavors that come through make it a very special blend.”
2017 Morphine details:
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés Maduro
Vitolas: Corona (5 1/2 x 42), Lancero (7 1/4 x 42), Short Robusto (4 1/2 x 50)
Morphine will be available in limited quantities at select retailers beginning on June 16, 2017. For the latest information from Black Label Trading Co., visit blacklabeltrading.com.
