2002 L.E. FFOX 10th Anniversary by Prometheus

 

In 1992, the Fuente family planted the first seeds of the wrapper leaves for Fuente Fuente OpusX at Chateau de la Fuenta in Dominican Republic.  In 1993, the first FFOX cigars were made with this legendary wrapper.  In commemoration of the Fuente Fuente OpusX Tenth Anniversary, Prometheus International, Inc. produced 100 FFOX Forbidden X humidors in 2002. 100 FFOX Forbidden X humidors were produced in three different veneers.

Red Madrona, 50
Yellow Eye Maple, 10
Macassar, 40

 
 

The Prometheus 2002 Limited Edition FFOX Forbidden X humidors were cabinet humidors.  Each humidor had two doors and when you open these doors, you will find seven drawers. Each drawer is equipped with a Prometheus Optima humidifier and digital hygrometer/thermometer.  The front facade of the drawer is finished with the same veneer as the outside and the inside of the drawer is lined with natural Mahogany veneer.  Storage capacity of each drawer is over 75 cigars.

External Dimensions of Humidor:
15.75 inch x 14.25 x 23.75
400 mm x 360 x 603

Weight of Humidor: 59 lbs (27 kg)

Capacity: over 500 cigars

Each humidor came with Carlos Fuente Jr's very special collection of 100 FFOX cigars and a part of this never-been-released collection is called "The Forbidden X".  The Fuente Fuente OpusX Forbidden X cigars were specially created for the Tenth Year Anniversary of Fuente Fuente OpusX and were available only in the Prometheus Limited Edition FFOX Forbidden X Humidors.

The first 50 cigars of Carlos Fuente Jr's special never-been-released collection of 100 FFOX cigars were shipped with the humidor to the authorized Prometheus dealers in November 2002 and the remaining 50 cigars,  in June 2003.
