Arturo Fuente The OpusX Society by Manny Iriarte
But Manny had an eye for beauty, and that’s the root of the Arturo Fuente The OpusX Society by Manny Iriarte collection. His hobby of photography was hard to pursue in Cuba where equipment and supplies were scarce. The striking imagery available in a country that had changed so much over the years was more than enough fuel for the soul of an artist, and Manny’s images were captivating. In the confining Cuban system, however, there was only so much he could do. For the open waters of opportunity, Manny had to make his way to America.
His work in the states eventually landed him work as a photographer in the ad industry, especially for tobacco and cigar companies. As a Cuban, it seems that tobacco was his destiny. His relationship with Carlos Fuente Jr. developed over the years, ultimately giving him the chance to design many high-end limited edition accessories to celebrate Fuente milestones. These included watches, humidors, lighters, and a number of other artworks. It became clear that there wouldn’t be one-off pieces. Instead, they were part of a larger collection growing all the time.
We now call it Arturo Fuente The OpusX Society by Manny Iriarte.
OpusX Society is a celebration of Fuente history, excellence, and style. Much of it is centered on imagery connected to the cult hit OpusX blend, naturally. This is one of the world-class cigars that has powered the current generation of the Arturo Fuente company to new heights. Based on the innovation of a Dominican wrapper leaf (grown on Chateau de la Fuente from Corojo-seed tobacco), the rich and complex flavor of OpusX is unlike any other cigar out there.
In this Arturo Fuente The OpusX Society by Manny Iriarte collection, you’ll find lavish humidors that would make outstanding 50th birthday presents, lighters that could provide the perfect accent to your favorite suit, and ashtrays that catch the eye, lighting up your favorite smoke spot. The collection has grown far beyond cigar accessories, however, and Arturo Fuente The OpusX Society by Manny Iriarte now includes handmade leather duffels, etched glassware, and more.
Even if you’re not a huge fan of Fuente, these pieces are still gorgeous. For those looking for a “knock their socks off” gift for the cigar lover in your life, this category provides some of the finest items we’ve ever had the honor of selling – beautiful, functional, and made to last.
