Fratello Cigars, Italian for “brother,” is a testament to the camaraderie and bond that the world of cigars fosters. Established by Omar de Frias, a former NASA project manager, Fratello Cigars exemplifies the pursuit of passion, a leap from aerospace to the nuanced, earthy realm of tobacco. Launched in 2013, the brand has since carved a niche for itself in the premium cigar market, distinguished by its unique blends and the creator’s keen attention to detail.
Fratello Cigars are recognized for their uncompromising quality and meticulously balanced blends. Handcrafted in the renowned Joya de Nicaragua factory, each cigar is an amalgamation of selected tobaccos from different regions, carefully assembled to deliver a satisfying and complex smoking experience. The brand offers several lines, including the Fratello Classico, Fratello Bianco, and Fratello Oro, each with its distinct flavor profile and strength.
The Fratello Classico, the brand’s flagship line, is a medium to full-bodied smoke. It starts with a blend of Peruvian and Nicaraguan fillers encased in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, producing a balanced profile of pepper, earthy sweetness, and a hint of cocoa. The Fratello Bianco, with its San Andres Negro wrapper, offers a more robust experience, with notes of dark chocolate, spice, and coffee, while the Fratello Oro, a milder cigar with an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, delivers creamy and nutty flavors with a touch of spice.
Fratello Cigars’ distinct flavor profiles, excellent construction, and the unique story of its creator have earned it a devoted following. From seasoned aficionados to novices, the brand’s appeal transcends a wide range of cigar enthusiasts, truly embodying its name – a brotherhood brought together by the shared love of fine cigars.
