While it was announced prior to the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Fratello Cigars used the show to showcase its third line, the Fratello Oro.

The Fratello Oro is not only is the company’s first Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade cigar, but it’s the first cigar the company is making in Omar de Frias’ native country, the Dominican Republic. To produce his cigars De Frias is partnering with the La Aurora factory. Fratello’s other lines are produced at Joya de Nicaragua in Esteli, Nicaragua.

The blend of the Fratello Oro consists of an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, a Cameroon binder, and a combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. The Oro will be available in six sizes: Corona (5 1/2 x 47), Robusto (5 x 50), Robusto Extra (4 x 58), Toro (6 1/4 x 54), Gordo (6 x 60), and the company’s signature box-press torpedo size, the Boxer (6 1/4 x 52). Each of the sizes are packaged in 20 count boxes.

The packaging reflects the name of the cigar as it is in a glossy gold-colored boxes.


In addition to the Fratello Oro, the company also released line extensions to its Fratello Bianco line with the Fratello Bianco IV and Fratello Bianco Boxer.
