More news on a Tuesday, this time it’s the sixth annual release of the Morphine from BLTC. I need to try this one, as I don’t think I’ve smoked a Morphine yet. I don’t know how I feel about the name. I’ve complained about other cigars named after illicit narcotics, and while morphine isn’t one that’s abused on the streets, it still could be taken the wrong way by those who would like to see tobacco abolished. I’d be happy to smoke the cigar and judge it on it’s own merits though! I’ll pick some up when I see them.
Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce its sixth annual release of MORPHINE: Hand crafted in Esteli, Nicaragua at BLTC’s own factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra.
“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″ x 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.
MORPHINE cigars will be available in limited quantities at select BLTC retailers beginning this week.
