C.A.: As the cigars get more expensive, I assume they benefit from the process that selects higher quality leaves.
C.A.: Is Opus X on the market? Have you started to ship? Or when are you shipping?
Fuente: We're waiting for the packaging to come in from Europe. We are on the third crop now. We like to age our tobacco a minimum of three years.
C.A.: But you expect to release Opus X this year?
Fuente: Maybe May or June.
C.A.: Of 1995?
C.A.: The real news is the Dominican wrapper?
