The Fratello Navetta and Navetta Inverso lines will be getting a Churchill vitola, both exclusives to the Tobaccology stores in Virginia.

Both cigars measure 7 x 50, slightly larger than the traditional 7 x 47 version of the vitola, and are priced at $11.50. They are actually packed in the same box of 20, which contain 10 of each cigar.

Production is limited to 2,500 cigars of each blend.

The Navetta blend uses an Ecuadorian oscuro wrapper over a Dominican binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Inverso, which is meant to be the inverse of the blend, uses a Nicaraguan habano wrapper over an Ecuadorian binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers.

“Working with Brett (Owner of Tobaccology) is always an experience,” said Omar de Frias, founder of Fratello, in a press release. “We are both fanatics of a Churchill vitola and also feel it needs to make a comeback. Then #BringBackChurchill was born.”

The cigars will debut on Nov. 21.

Tobaccology has locations in Haymarket and Manassas.
