Press Release: Black Label Trading Company Launches Morphine Line

March 26, 14 — Black Label Trading Company is pleased to announce the release of MORPHINE: Hand crafted in Esteli NICARAGUA using 2 maduro wrappers.

James Brown, founder of Black Label Trading Company, will be releasing his newest and boldest creation MORPHINE at this years IPCPR.

Black Label Trading Co. launched in 2013 with 6 blends and the new addition brings a highly anticipated stronger, fuller bodied cigar to the line up.

Created in Nicaragua, BLTC’s use of 2 maduro wrappers and the extra bold, full bodied blend make Morphine a truly unique smoking experience.

“The goal was to give our customers what they have been waiting for. Something big, bold & badass. They expect our smokes to be unique and out of the box when it comes to flavor profile. Morphine is exactly that. Everyone thought I was a little crazy when I explained the double wrapper idea but combining the Ecuadorean maduro wrapper with the San Andres elevated the cigar to a whole new level of richness and complexity.” Said Brown.

MOPRHINE features the Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper and the Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper with both Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers & Nicaraguan Habano binder. The cigars are available in a Lancero and Corona vitolas.

That packaging is bad ass. Straight out of silence of the lambs, "It puts the lotion on it's skin or it gets the hose again!"

Will this come with a challenge like Dr. Cuenca gave with the Bull? Finish it without losing your lunch or passing out and win a prize?

Curious about the whole double wrapper thing and how common that is. Double binder is old school, never heard if double wrapper. I'd be curious to see how it is rolled

BLTC just confirmed that there is a Silence of the Lambs theme to this line.

The names of the first two vitolas are:
Corona - Clarice
Lancero - Dr. Lecter
These will be followed up in the fall by two new vitolas Hannibal & Quid pro quo
