Fratello Cigars has announced its third line, the Fratello Oro. This new line marks a change in pace for Fratello Cigars in a few different ways. First, it introduces an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper into the Fratello Cigars portfolio. In addition, the cigar will be produced at La Aurora SA, marking not only a new factory, but a new production country for Fratello. Plans are for the Fratello Oro to make its official debut at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
In a press release announcing Fratello Oro, company founder Omar de Frias commented, “We wanted a mild to medium cigar with a creamy after taste but that it also embodies the true nature of our company which is full flavor cigars.”
In addition to an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, the Fratello Oro uses a Cameroon binder, and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. The cigars will be launched in six sizes packaged in 20 count boxes. Pricing will range from $7.00 to $10.00 SRP.

“We decided to take this project back to my homeland the Dominican Republic and work with La Aurora, one of the oldest cigar factories in the country.” I met last year with Guillermo Leon and Manuel Inoa and discussed some of my plans and interest in using some of the amazing tobaccos that factory has to offer. They opened their doors to their tobacco and manufacturing facility giving me free rein to explore and blend with their amazing inventory.” Said de Frias.
In addition to Fratello Oro, the company has also has line extensions to Fratello Bianco including Fratello Bianco Boxer and Fratello Bianco IV being fully launched at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
