IPCPR 2011: Prometheus
Prometheus’ mixture of limited editions, regular lines and accessories make it one of the busiest booths of the show, this year was no different. I guarantee what’s after the jump is missing some humidor, but it includes a new line, a new limited line, Opus 22 sets, Gran AnivXario extensions, accessories and a lot more; which is a lot.

Prometheus Magma T CFCF 10th Anniversary
There are 1,500 of these made, retailing for $89.95.
This is a pipe lighter with a built in tamper. Retail is $59.95.
Triple flame, built-in punch.
The plan is to keep these in limited accounts for a bit longer. It’s a bit different than what I was expecting, but it was a definitive change-up from the regular Sencillo line.
Like the Cigar Family booth, the words from Keith Park were, “next year” — a reference to Carlito’s plans for Fuente’s 100th anniversary. — el niño diablo.
