Fratello Cigars has announced the Fratello Fuoco. This is a 3 1/2 x 50 vitola that will be a line extension to the Fratello Classico, Fratello Bianco, and Fratello Oro lines.
“We released the Fratello Fuoco in Europe in 2019 as it is very popular size in the European Market. Following its success, we are now bringing this special size to the consumer in the US,” commented Omar de Frias in a press release.
Fratello Classico is produced at Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua, S.A. and features a Nicaraguan wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and a combination of Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers. Fratello Bianco is also produced at Fábrica de Tabacos Joya de Nicaragua, S.A. and features a San Andres Mexican wrapper, Dominican binder, and a combination of U.S., Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers. The Fratello Oro comes from the La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic and features an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper, Cameroon binder, and fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic.
Fratello Cigars produced the Fratello Firecracker for Two Guys Smoke Shop in 2017. That cigar was also a 3 1/2 x 50 vitola based on the Classico blend, but it was highlighted by the Firecracker’s long signature fuse.
Each vitola will retail at $7.50 per cigar.
It is anticipated the Fratello Fuoco will be showcased at the 2021 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show which opens July 10th in Las Vegas. Fratello also announced the Fuoco Oro will ship August 15th.
