Fratello Cigars has announced a new installment of the Fratello Esclusivo will be coming to Old Virginia Tobacco Company (OVTC). This time it’s a Connecticut Shade cigar and its appropriately called the Fratello Esclusivo Connecticut. The cigar will make its debut at a launch event on December 13th.
Produced at the Joya de Nicaragua factory, the cigar will utilize an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Dominican filler. The Fratello Esclusivo Connecticut will come in one size – a 6 x 52 Toro. Production will be limited to 300 20-count boxes.
Last year, the first Fratello Esclusivo made its debut at Old Virginia Tobacco Company in the form of a 5 x 52 Piramide based on the original Fratello blend.
“I approached Gary (Owner of OVTC) earlier this year about expanding on the Esclusivo line. The idea was to challenge the success we had with the Habano and expand the line so OVTC customers have another exclusive cigar to enjoy in their stores,” said Fratello Cigars founder Omar de Frias.
This marks the sixth store exclusive for Fratello Cigars. The other exclusives include the Fratello H-Town Lancero (Stogies World Class Cigars, Houston, TX); Fratello Firecracker (Two Guys Smoke Shop, New Hampshire), Fratello Esclusivo (Old Virginia Tobacco Co, Virginia), Fratello Oro Churchill (Leesburg Cigar and Pipe), and the combined Fratello Navetta and Navetta Inverso Churchill release (Tobaccology)
