Fratello’s exclusives for the areas in and around Washington, D.C. are now off to stores.
Like last year, the company will release four different cigars, each named after either a state or D.C. Unlike last year—where one blend was used for all four cigars—this year, each cigar uses a different wrapper.
- Fratello DMV Delaware (2019) (5 x 47) — Brazil Arapiraca — $9.95 (Box of 20, $199)
- Fratello DMV Maryland (2019) (5 x 58) — Mexican San Andrés — $11.95 (Box of 20, $239)
- Fratello DMV Virginia (2019) (5 x 54) — Ecuadorian Corojo — $11.95 (Box of 20, $239)
- Fratello DMV Washington D.C. (2019) (5 x 50) — Ecuadorian Habano — $10.95 (Box of 20, $219)
Internally, each cigar uses an Ecuadorian binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. They are produced at La Aurora Cigar Factory in the Dominican Republic.
A total of 150 boxes of each cigar are being produced. Fratello will donate a portion of the sales of each cigar to the state’s corresponding cigar association.
The Fratello DMV 2019 releases were originally scheduled to ship on Dec. 1.
