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.

Country of Origin: Nicaragua

Wrapper: Mexican San Andres Maduro

Inner Wrapper: Ecuadorian Maduro

Binder: Nicaraguan Habano

Filler: Honduran & Nicaraguan

Corona – 5 ½ x 42Lancero – 7 x 38

The most excellent manager at The Wharf handed me some samples, which we call homework.  Two of the cigars looked vaguely familiar to me.  Black and white labels with some nice design, attractive looking tobacco.  Needless to say, I was intrigued.  I was handed two of these samples, Black Label Trading Company, and I chose the Lawless blend for the first review.  The Benediction will soon follow.  So, enough babbling here, let’s get smoking.

Construction: This is an exceptionally nice looking cigar.  The Habano Rosado wrapper leaf is a nice deep red-brown with loads of oils.  The seams are smooth and no veins.  The overall look of the cigar is very rustic and rather lumpy.  Honestly, a look I enjoy in any cigar.  The band also deserves some recognition here.  A simple black and white scheme always looks good on cigars and in this case they used a nice Victorian flourish with a skull and crown.  It’s a simple scheme that works well.  The foot is protected by a band as well.  This sporting the name of the cigar in matching black and white using distressed lettering.  Overall a very nice presentation.




Finally!  It’s not below freezing outside and no white crap is falling from the sky!  What a winter it has been around here…heck, everywhere!  So, to celebrate this joyous occasion, I am sitting on the porch with a bottle of mineral water and a Black Label Trading Company Benediction.  After smoking the Lawless and being blown to smithereens by its complexity and craftsmanship, I decided the time was right for round two.  Let’s get smoking….

Construction: An absolutely gorgeous red-brown and veinless wrapper leaf, no seams or other issues, oils so heavy you can see yourself in the reflection.  Just another beautiful cigar from BLTC.
