It’s been more than 25 years since Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. shocked the cigar world with the release of the Fuente Fuente OpusX, a cigar made with Cuban seed wrapper grown under shade in the Dominican Republic. That leaf became the signature for one of the most coveted brands in the cigar world, and to celebrate the milestone, Elie Bleu is releasing a collection of high-end accessories this October.
What you won’t find on this new version of Opus is the brand’s signature red color. Instead, this version uses green as its dominant color. Previously, the brand went blue for its 20th anniversary. This collection of accessories is a collaboration between Elie Bleu and designer Manny Iriarte, who has had a longtime working relationship with the Fuente family.
The Elie Bleu humidor comes packed with 25 limited-edition Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars that measure 7 inches by 50 ring gauge. The box itself is green and tan with wood accents, while the words “Opus 25” and “Chateau” can be seen on the top and front. Each cabinet also has marquetry and rose gold metal accents
