Fratello

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano

Binder: Ecuadorian

Filler: Nicaraguan & Peruvian

There’s some info online about Omar de Frias’s career with NASA and in basketball, plus a cute blurb about his inspiration as a young Nicaraguan native living next to a cigar shop. I didn’t interview him, so I won’t act as if I have any inside info. You guys all have the internet, too.

The prelight aroma was delightfully sweet and it has a beautiful, fine-toothed Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. The stick burned evenly and cool with a well-balanced medium profile. Prominent flavors were a light cocoa, cinnamon, pepper with touch of wood. I love to find a refined, non “flavor bomb” cigar that is flavorful and rich with no trace of acidity or bitterness. These are at a good price point, too. Recommended.
