Morphine Cigar by Black Label Trading Co.

Morphine

The cigar Morphine by the Black Label Trading Co., is a wonderful smoke. So much so that I looked up some background on this one. It has two wrappers. The first is a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper and the second is an Ecuadorian Maduro wrapper. Includes both Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers and a Nicaraguan Habano binder. My friends, this is a beautiful cigar.

One cigar connoisseur commented that this cigar was big, bold and bad-ass. It is full-bodied, yet a smooth cigar. It lit well and burned nicely leaving a solid ash until I flicked it off in the tray. An oak wood aftertaste that was pleasant. A hint of spice that went very well with the Forgiven Bourbon by Wild Turkey I was sipping during a rainy and lazy afternoon this 4th of July day while grilling Filet Mignon on the Big Green Egg out on the covered screened-in.

A great cigar, bourbon and incredibly juicy steaks, cut off the cob corn, and my own special recipe baked beans – an awesome, awesome evening!

    Wild Turkey Forgiven Bourbon

    The story I heard behind this bourbon, a “mistake”, is that a tanker was filled with a small batch bourbon only to discover that the tanker was already loaded with high proof whisky, people lost their jobs. But then the Associate Master Distiller tasted the accidental blend and declared it worthy of bottling, and a mishap turned into Wild Turkey Forgiven. 91 proof with a spicy bold taste that has a surprisingly smooth finish. Coined “Forgiven” because everyone got to keep their job.

    After a buddy and I sampled Forgiven at a bourbon tasting over a year ago we each had to have a bottle, but couldn’t find it anywhere. It’s limited. Like hound dogs we tracked down some bottles and ended up with a few each. We polished off a bottle this holiday weekend. And it was one of MY bottles – WTF!?

    My Special Recipe Baked Beans

    Scramble up some Tennessee Pride Hot Sausage, add baked beans (I use Bush’s), green, red and yellow peppers, onions, a dollop of English Mustard, a squirt of ketchup, and brown sugar. Fantastic!
