Today, Black Label Trading Company announced the sixth annual release of its MORPHINE line. Morphone is rolled at James Brown’s Fabrica Oveja Negra in Esteli, Nicaragua. It uses a Mexican San Andrés Maduro wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and Nicaraguan fillers. It is available in 3 vitolas: Corona Gorda Box Press – 5.5 x 46 (18 count) MSRP $10.50, Lancero – 7 x 38 (12 count) MSRP $11.50, Short Robusto – 4.5 x 50 (20 count) MSRP $10.50.
“I can’t believe it’s been six years since our first Morphine release. To celebrate we have brought back one of my favorite vitolas, the 7×38 Lancero. The other vitolas are old favorites also, the short Robusto and the Box Pressed Corona Gorda. This years vintage is rich and earthy with bold spice on the retro. The key note flavors are raisin, black cherry and a big blast of anise on the finish. This vintage is one of the best yet!” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.
