Some news from RTDA by Rich Perelman at CigarCyclopedia.com:
Got Opus X?
As most Opus X fans know, there usually a limit of two cigars on the popular Fuente Fuente Opus X line. But soon, fans of the brand and those who would like to be introduced to the world of Opus X can increase their take by 50%.
Near the end of the year, the Opus X Three-Cigar Metal Tin will be introduced, offering three of the most popular Opus X shapes in an elegant, telescoping tin that will be reusable as a light-duty metal cigar case. The front is lavishly illustrated in the Opus X style, including the signaturepicture of Carlos and Carlito Fuente in their tobacco fields in the Dominican Republic.
Each case will contain one each of the Opus X Robusto (5 1/4 x 50), Perfecxion X (6 1/4 x 48) and Reserva d’Chateau (7 x 48).
A correction to yesterday’s story on the Stanford’s 90th Diamond Crown Maximus cigar: As reported, only 850 boxes of 20 cigars will be produced, but this is a total of 17,000 cigars, not 1,700 as listed in error in our story.
Although not as visible as during the Cigar Boon, when his heavily-scented cigars introduced a new concept into the U.S. cigar market, Lars Tetens is once again producing a new blend.
Called Gorilla Fingers, it’s a single-size line for now at five inches and 60 ring gauge. It offers the well-known power of the Lars Tetens brands, featuring a Cameroon wrapper and aged Ecuadorian binder and Dominican-grown filler leaves, plus a delicate infusion of Courvoisier Cognac.
Tetens designed the cigar for J.H. Bolz, who is distributing it nationwide with a suggested retail price of $14.95 (before any local tobacco taxes). The cigar is presented in an individual, re-sealable, humidified bag with a specially-made sponge and protective insert.
