Springfield, VA (July 12, 2016) – Omar de Frias is proud to announce his third blend after Fratello was introduced in 2013 and Fratello Bianco in 2015. Fratello Oro is the company’s first time working with an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. “We wanted a mild to medium cigar with a creamy aftertaste but that it also embodies the true nature of our company which is full flavor cigars.” Said de Frias.
Fratello Oro will debut in 20 count boxes and six sizes with prices ranging between $7.00 and $10.00:
- Corona 5 ½ x 47
- Robusto 5 x 50
- Robusto Extra: 4 x 58
- Toro: 6 ¼ x 54
- Gordo 6 x 60
- The Boxer Oro: 6 ¼ x 52
“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.
Fratello Oro was blended with a Connecticut Ecuador wrapper, Cameroon Binder with Nicaraguan and Dominican Filler. Fratello Oro will be making its official debut at this year’s IPCPR show in Las Vegas.
