Fratello Classico is the cigar that started it all! This Nicaraguan Habano-wrapped beauty debuted in 2013, being quick to catch the eye of hungry cigar enthusiasts with an Italian theme and a barber-pole-like band that wound its way up the face of each cigar.
This flavorful Nicaraguan was the brainchild of Omar de Frias, founder of Fratello Cigars and former employee at NASA. When setting out to craft his ideal smoking experience, Omar partnered with the famed Joya de Nicaragua factory (aka Nicaragua's first and oldest cigar factory). The blend was selected from high-grade Nicaraguan and Peruvian fillers; these leaves were then bound in an Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf and finished with an oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. The resulting experience is flavor-forward and nothing shy of classico! Fratello Classico billows with a thick and chalky smoke from the get-go, offering a full-bodied profile and long-lasting flavors of chocolate, oak, leather, black pepper, and sweet maple syrup.
