C.A.: The binder and the filler?
C.A.: Is there anything unusual or unique about the blend? As, let's say, compared to the Hemingway or the Don Carlos?
Fuente: It's a totally different animal.
C.A.: What's the price range of the Opus X going to be?
Fuente: Well, I don't think we have sat down and figured it out exactly, but it's going to be expensive. I would assume over seven bucks.
C.A.: But you said that you have some other cigars that go as high as $9?
Fuente: The Hemingways.
C.A.: Wouldn't the Opus X likely be priced above that?
Fuente: Yeah, but we're going to have different sizes. I think it will probably be over $10 for the big cigars.
