Fratello Cigars has announced a new cigar today, the Fratello Arlequin Prensado. A preview was given for this blend in June 2019 with the Space Fresh Packs along with Sorella and Arlequin, Fratello Classico, and Fratello Bianco II all in a new 6 x 50 format. The idea was that consumers would give feedback and tell the company their preference for either the Sorella or Arlequin.
"There is only one word to describe this cigar, phenomenal. Flavors were on point, construction was nearly flawless and it made the time spent smoking it memorable. I would recommend this cigar to anyone that loves a deep, dark, flavorful cigar. Hands down, this cigar is a Box buy and I can't wait to find out what it is so I could do just THAT!" -Estevan Z.

Omar de Frias announced today a new cigar exclusive to Old Virginia Tobacco (OVTC), Fratello Esclusivo Connecticut. Last year, Old Virginia Tobacco and Fratello launched the Esclusivo, which was a 5 x 52 piramide using a Habano Nicaragua wrapper. The new blend uses an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaragua and Dominican fillers. Esclusivo Connecticut comes in one vitola, a 6 x 52 parejo. Only 300 boxes of 20 were made. Esclusivo Connecticut will sell at all 7 stores of the Northern Virginia chain.
Last year, Fratello Cigars and Omar de Frias released two new blends, Sorella vs Arlequin, as a part of their "Space Fresh Packs" sampler. The idea was to get market feedback and see which blend customers preferred. Back in June, the company announced that they were releasing Arlequin to the U.S. market, as that was the blend they preferred. It turns out everyone outside the U.S. preferred Sorella. So now, they are increasing that cigar to international markets.
