Hublot celebrates twenty years of the Fuente Fuente OpusX
For cigars lovers," said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, the Fuente Fuente Opus X is an absolute reference point, both in terms of its flavor and the quality of its performance. Finding the finest products and the production excellence values with which we Hublot share. We are happy to be able to attend the celebrations of the twenty years of this exceptional cigar through our third collaboration with Arturo Fuente's home. "
The Fuente Fuente Opus X saw the light after Carlos Fuente built his cigar factory in the Dominican Republic near the city of Santiago against the opinion of all. Thereafter, after many attempts, he and his family succeeded in cultivating tobacco plants with the highest quality leaves and with a unique and powerful flavor. Carlos Fuente was very confident in achieving this result because, in his opinion, the site had a certain resemblance to the "Pinar del Rio" valley where the best tobacco is grown in Cuba.
Thus was born the "Chateau de la Fuente", the first of the Fuente factories, to follow Fuente & Cie's activity that his grandfather had founded in Cuba in 1912.
To celebrate this success, Fuente decided to produce the King of Cigars, a cigar for which there would be no waiver in terms of quality the Fuente Fuente Opus X. The "torcedores" had to follow 10 months of specific training. The cigar must be composed of 9 tobacco leaves and, once rolled, the cigars must rest at least two years before export to allow their different flavors to mingle harmoniously through maturation.
"I wanted my grandfather to be proud of me," said Carlos Fuente, and also my dad, and that my sons were one day too. "
The partnership between the Nyon Maison and the cigars producer Arturo Fuente began in 2012 at the Centenary of the Fuente Foundation and is the result of a friendship between men who command two companies sharing common values of meticulousness, production, material selection , organized production and research of excellence.
