Limited Edition FUENTE FUENTE OPUSX Spanish Cedar Cigar Box with Journey to Chateau de la Fuente Book
Great gift for the cigar connoisseur!
This is an empty CHATEAU de la FUENTE WOOD CIGAR BOX that originally held FUENTE FUENTE OPUSX LANCERO cigars made by Arturo Fuente. Fuente cigars are consistently rated among the best cigars in the world and the Fuente Fuente OpusX has been said to be one of the hardest-to-find, most sought-after cigars on earth. It set the standard for non-Cuban cigars when it was released in 1995.
This CHATEAU de la FUENTE WOOD CIGAR BOX was offered as a limited-edition set in 2006. It originally contained four rare Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars and a photo essay book, called Journey to Chateau de la Fuente, and a travel size Humidipak. Only 2,500 were made and sold. A sticker on the box, marks it as 803 out of the 2500.
This listing is for the cigar box, insert tray, Humidpak and photo essay book only. It is being without the cigars and does not include any tobacco.
The box also made by Fuente, is made of Spanish cedar, a wood similar in appearance to mahogany but not as hard. It is inlayed with a bright gold accented and red Fuente Fuente OpusX logo on the front. Below the logo in gold lettering are the words:
Aged 3 yearsChateau de la FuenteFuente Aged SelectionMCMXCII1992
The logo is also on the inside top of the box, screenprinted in metallic gold and red on a black velvet background. There is a wood insert that held the cigars--each packed individually in boxes.
Embossed on the wood insert are the words:
Aged 3 YearsFuente Aged Selection
On the front side edge, are the words, Limited Edition 2006 and 4 Fuente Fuente OpusX - Lancero.
The 44-page photo essay book, Journey to Chateau de la Fuente contains 25 unforgettable photographs of Chateau de la Fuente, site of the family farm where the legendary Opus X wrapper leaf is grown. The Humidpak, pictorial on both sides, is wrapped in a envelope packet, also embossed to resemble tobacco leaves.
The box is well constructed and in good condition. Hinges and clasp are brass and work well. It measures approximately 9 ¾” by 8 ¼" by 1 ½”.
