It has an MSRP of $11 per cigar and is sold in boxes of 20.

This is the fourth size for the line, though only three are currently available:

The original 6 x 50 Arlequín size was sold in a sampler that Fratello introduced in June 2019. At the time, the company said it was using it to get feedback about two new blends: Arlequín and Sorella, the latter of which is sold in international markets.

As for the name, Arlequín—also known as Harlequin—was a comedic servant for the Italian theatre Commedia dell’arte.
