Right on time, the Fratello Esclusivo has arrived at Old Virginia Tobacco Co.

The 5 x 52 piramide is an exclusive to the Virginia-based chain of retailers. The company says it’s based on the original Fratello blend, though it’s been tweaked.


Pricing is set at $8.75 per cigar and it is limited to 300 boxes of 20 cigars.

Fratello founder Omar de Frias will be at the company’s Seven Corners location tomorrow for an event and the Potomac Mills store on Wednesday.

Production is being handled by Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua S.A.
