And that penchant for these massive, dramatic and sometimes divisive profiles rings very a lot true with the label’s new Library Collection.
One of the standouts from the choice is Opus XIV Royal Tobacco, which ventures exterior of Oman by way of inspiration and pays tribute to Cuba – international locations bridged by the 2 major notes of frankincense and tobacco.
