News: Fuente Aged Selection, God of Fire & Prometheus Collection
Cigar reviews will resume on Monday as I had a bout of the summer flu, thankfully it twas the week before IPCPR and there were more press releases then one would know what do with. This morning I woke up to 3 separate press releases from different divisions within Prometheus. The items from Prometheus have proven to be true collectors items with some rare Opus releases, and one of a kind blends. This year seems to be no different and I’ve highlighted some of the top releases…

Prometheus stole fire from Zeus, the king of Olympian Gods, to give it to mankind. Enraged Zeus ordered Prometheus to be bound to a desolate rock and attacked by an eagle. Prometheus was punished for his love of mortals. The above painting, Prometheus Bound, portrays his unwavering endurance of suffering. Prometheus is a ourageous hero for mankind, and also known as God of Fire.
