This year marks the 25th anniversary of OpusX, the famous Dominican puro from Arturo Fuente. While Fuente itself has been surprisingly subdued in celebrating the milestone, it has partnered with Elie Bleu for an accessory collection that is now shipping to stores.
Elie Bleu is an accessory company but it is actually selling a Fuente Fuente OpusX 25 cigar through two different humidor releases. The cigar is a 7 x 50 Churchill that wears a green version of the OpusX band. No details have been provided about the blend or whether it will be sold without having to purchase a humidor.
The Fuente Fuente OpusX 25 Elie Bleu Limited Edition 88-Count Humidor is designed to hold up to 88 cigars, though it only comes with 25 of the special cigars, packaged in a separate box.
It measures 15.15 inches x 6.69 x 9.84. the humidor uses red gum wood with marquetry and rose gold accents. The humidor has an MSRP of $9,250 and is limited to 88 pieces.
The Fuente Fuente OpusX 25 Elie Bleu Ashtray is a larger version of the porcelain ashtrays Elie Bleu has sold for years. Unlike previous versions which only came with designed spots for two cigars, these ashtrays can have four cigars resting at any given time. Each ashtray is made in Limoges, France.
It is limited to 250 numbered pieces and has an MSRP of $1,140.
Elie Bleu has created a special pair of cigar scissors for the occasion. These have a stainless steel body and rose gold handles. It has an MSRP of $480 and is limited to 250 numbered pieces.
There’s also the Fuente Fuente OpusX 25 Elie Bleu J-14 Lighter. The J-14 is a single-flame torch lighter that Elie Bleu introduced in 2017. This version is limited to 250 numbered pieces and has an MSRP of $450.
One item is not currently shipping, the flagship Fuente Fuente OpusX 25 Elie Bleu Limited Edition 144-Count Cabinet.
The $70,000 package comes with a cabinet-style humidor, six boxes of Fuente Fuente OpusX 25, and the aforementioned lighter and cutter, each of which will have matching numbers. Elie Bleu says it will begin shipping that package in early 2022. It is limited to 25 pieces.
