Fratello Cigars is adding a fifth vitola to its eponymous named line. The Fratello Box-Pressed Torpedo is the first line extension by Omar de Frias‘ company since he launched at the IPCPR Trade Show. The cigar marks the first box-pressed and first figuardo shape in the line.
“We are very excited about this new vitola, it has a punch of flavor thanks to its ring style and slightly modified blend but staying true to the Fratello flavor,” said de Frias in a press release by the company announcing the line extension.
The Fratello Box-Pressed will have a soft launch prior to the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, and then be made more readily available afterwards.
“Fratello Cigar Company has grown exponentially since the IPCPR show and this new line will add to our calculated expansion in America’s humidors,” added de Frias.
In September of 2013, we scored the Fratello Corona a 92.
