Probably Houdini in tactical mode will remind you of it.
However, Houdini will play better than Morphy would on current hardware.
Matefinder Stockfish is another option.

I assume you are looking for tactical brilliance, like Morphy or Tal.

Chessmaster... strings for "DeadKing" to Fritz: opp=100 opn=100 opb=100 opr=100 opq=100 myp=100 myn=100 myb=103 myr=100 myq=101 mycc=125 mymob=200 myks=85 mypp=90 oppp=90 mypw=90 oppw=90 opcc=125 opks=85 opmob=150 avd=-25 cfd=0 sop=100 rnd=0 sel=9 md=99 cfd=1
But according to the tests of other personalities it is not very similar to the masters, but rather the wishes of the authors ...
