Prometheus has announced that it will begin shipping the 2020 version of the Opus22 box sets this week.
As in year’s past, the release is part of Fuente Aged Selection—a partnership between Arturo Fuente and Prometheus. It is a 22-count sampler that comes in a large cube like box. Inside are 22 rare Arturo Fuente products, most of which are not sold to normal retailers outside of this special release.
The cigars are nearly identical to the 2019 release. The lone difference is the 2020 version comes with a Magnum O whereas the 2019 version shipped with a King Power.
