The Fuente Fuente OpusX 2020 is now on sale.

On Friday, the new cigar went on sale at Dubai Duty Free stores. OpusX 2020 is an exclusive release for the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which includes Dubai, and is being launched to coincide with Expo 2020, which takes place in the UAE this October.

Like the original Fuente Fuente OpusX, the cigar uses tobacco from the Fuente family’s Chateau de la Fuente in El Caribe, Dominican Republic. It is being offered in three sizes.

  • Fuente Fuente OpusX 2020 Arena d’Amor (5 x 52) — 147.50 AED (Box of 20, 2,950 AED)
  • Fuente Fuente OpusX 2020 Sol d’Amor (6 1/8 x 55) — 152.50 AED (Box of 20, 3,050 AED)
  • Fuente Fuente OpusX 2020 Viento d’Amor (6 x 58) — 167.50 AED (Box of 20, 3,350 AED)

Based on current conversion rates, that works out to roughly $40.15, $41.50 and $45.60 per cigar.

OpusX 2020 is a partnership between Fuente and Zainal Mohebi Holdings, the company’s distributor in the UAE, and the Meerapfel family, which handles the company’s distribution outside of the U.S.

This the second OpusX exclusive for the region, in late 2017 the company released the OpusX Dubai Exclusivo.
