Also gone! ! Arturo Fuente Opus samplers $200. 1 remaining and a new shape in the  Casa Cuba line. All these products are only available through Arturo Fuente Emerald accounts. Our next allocation will be sometime this summer. Shop Virgil Ave Tobacconist where you can find all the best cigars at amazing prices. Fuente Opus X, La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull, Burn by Rocky Patel, Liga Privada by Drew Estates , The ” V ” and Millennia by Oliva. More cigars, great prices and no ATTITUDE!
