Almost every year, Prometheus is releasing (travel) humidors in collaboration with Arturo Fuente and these sets always contain aged Opus X cigars. This year is not different with a few sets of rare and aged Fuente Fuente Opus X cigars in Prometheus made packaging.

The Opus6 is a sampler with six cigars. They come in a special sampler either in blue, yellow, red, black or macassar ebony. There are 400 sets of each colour available, making 2000 sets in total. The cigars have a secondary band that indicate the year that the cigars were rolled, and in this case it’s 2019. The set contains a copy of the biography of Carlos Fuente Sr, The Fuente Story: Passion behind tradition & legacy and the Opus X Love Affair, Magnum O, Tiger Shark, Lancero as well as the Fuente Fuente Taurus the Bull and the Don Arturo Gran AniverXario Churchill

There are also sets coming with either five, seven and eight cigars called the Opus5, Opus7 and Opus8. The contents of these samplers are yet to be disclosed but Prometheus and Fuente did reveal that some of these samplers will contain the Heaven & Earth BBMF, Purple Rain and the Rare Black Torpedo. The cigars in the Opus8 set are rolled between 2015 and 2017.

The Opus X Lost City, with its history with the Andy Garcia movie with the same name, will come in an A vitola called Carlito’s A. The cigar comes in boxes of ten sticks and measures 9¼x48. The box includes a hardcover copy of Arturo Fuente: Since 1912 and only 250 boxes are made.

Finally this is the second instalment of the 2023 Opus X Heaven & Earth Big B humidor that comes with 100 aged cigars. There were 100 humidors available, 50 released in June while the remaining 50 will become available in December. The humidors are finished in sycamore with an Okuma interior and the humidors are individually numbered. The Arturo Fuente: Since 1912 book is included including the following cigars:
