Black Label Trading Company’s annual limited release Morphine is returning for the seventh consecutive year. This year’s edition features new artwork and dual wrappers for the three sizes released.
“This is our seventh vintage of Morphine so we wanted to change things up a bit to celebrate. I designed new artwork and each of the three vitolas is wrapped in two wrappers, Ecuador Maduro and Mexican San Andrés. The 2020 vintage is rich and earthy with bold spice on the retro. The key flavors are raisin, black cherry and a big blast of anise on the finish. The dual wrappers work together to make this vintage very unique and one of the best so far,” said James Brown, creator of BLTC and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra in a press release.
The dual wrappers have been used before on Morphine – most recently on the 2018 Morphine Lancero.
Morphine 2020 is a small batch limited production made at Brown’s Fabrica Oveja Negra in Nicaragua. The cigars are expected to ship to select retailers nationwide this week.
