A bit later than expected, the Fratello DMV Maduro Selection is finally on sale.

Today—at an event at Tobaccology in Manassas, Va.—the DMV Maduro Selection went on sale. It’s an extension to the Fratello DMV Series, which debuted in 2018 as a regional release for the northeastern region that includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.


The new release is a 12-count sampler priced at $132. Inside are four different blends, each with the same binder and filler but a different wrapper. Fratello isn’t disclosing any details about the blends, but all cigars are 6 x 50 vitolas made at Fabrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A.

Production is limited to 600 samplers.
