Omar de Frias announced the Fratello Esclusivo Connecticut to be sold exclusively at Old Virginia Tobacco (OVTC). Fratello Esclusivo launched last year with a 5 x 52 Habano Nicaragua piramide. This year, the Esclusivo Connecticut, will expand the line in all 7 stores of the Northern Virginia chain.
The Esclusivo Connecticut uses an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper over a Nicaragua binder and Nicaragua and Dominican filler. Esclusivo Connecticut will debut in a 6 x 52 parejo and the initial production is set to 300 Boxes of 20 cigars.
“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 de Frias.
The launch event of the Esclusivo CT is set for December 13th, 2019. MSRP is set to $8.75 per cigar. The cigar is produced at Joya de Nicaragua.
This marks the sixth store exclusive for Fratello Cigars.
