The newest cigar from Fratello is heading to stores, not without a few bad punchlines about rockets landing.

It’s the Fratello Navetta, using the Italian word for shuttle, and it pays tribute to company founder Omar de Frias’ time at NASA.

Navetta, which was first shown off at the 2017 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show in July, using an Ecuadorian oscuro wrapper over a Dominican binder and fillers from Nicaragua.

The new line is offered in four sizes.

  • Fratello Navetta Discovery (5 x 50) — $10.50 (Boxes of 20, $210)
  • Fratello Navetta Endeavor (6 1/4 x 54) — $11.25 (Boxes of 20, $225)
  • Fratello Navetta Enterprise (6 x 60) — $12 (Boxes of 20, $240)
  • Fratello Navetta Atlantis (6 1/4 x 52) — $12.50 (Boxes of 20, $250)

Production is once again being handled by Joya de Nicaragua, who has made all but one of the Fratello lines to date.
