It might be a national holiday, but that doesn’t mean there cannot be a new cigar.
Fratello has announced that it has begun the national launch of its latest cigar, the Fratello Oro. The project is notable as it is the first cigar Omar de Frias is making in his home country, the Dominican Republic.
It uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, another first for the company, over a Cameroon binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
Six sizes are being produced: Corona (5 1/2 x 47, $8), Gordo (6 x 60, $9.50), Robusto (5 x 50, $8.25), Shorty (4 x 58, $8.50), Toro (6 1/4 x 54, $9) and The Boxer Oro (6 1/4 x 52, $9.75).
