Uh-oh. In 2005, United Tobacco, i.e. the parent of the former EO Brands, the company headed by Erik Espinosa and Eddie Ortega, released the Series X, a Nicaraguan puro made by Oliva. Four sizes (Boomer (5 x 54/$5.80), Celebrity (7 x 52/$6.10), Chairman (6 x 60/$6.45) & Tabu (5 1/2 x 54/$5.95)) were made and sold for a very short amount of time. Turns out, Arturo Fuente took issue with the X and after a short legal dispute, the brand was pulled and placed into the folklore of cigars. Here’s your chance at the Celebrity.
