Last year’s limited Fratello Boxer is back and now with friends.
Omar de Frias has announced the box-pressed version of the company’s debut Fratello line will be back as part of a new limited edition sampler. Inside each box, which is shaped like a mold, is the Boxer, once again a 6 1/4 x 52 belicoso, the Boxeador (6 x 54), Boxero (5 1/2 x 50), Boxista (5 x 48) and Boxerito (4 3/4 x 46). They are all part of the newly-minted Boxer Series.
The cigars use the same blend as the regular Fratello, but box-pressed. This means a Nicaraguan habano wrapper, Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, and Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers.
Suggested retail price for the samplers is $45 and it is limited to 3,000 units.
Fratello’s production facility has previously been described as an undisclosed Nicaraguan, but the company can now disclose that its cigars are made at Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A.
