Omar de Frias is proud to announce that the Fratello Camo Bundles announced at this year’s TPE trade show are heading to stores this week.
Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic that halted operations in the Dominican Republic and placed the US on a “Stay At Home” order for several weeks, the original March release was delayed
“As crazy as the last few months have been for us all, it’s good to be able to get back to a little normalcy…and to share 3 great cigars at great price points for our retail partners and supporters.”
The 3 blends, Fratello Blue (Maduro), Fratello Rosso (Habano), and Fratello Verde (Connecticut), come in 15-count bundles, and are offered in two sizes; a 5 x 50 robusto and a 6 x 50 toro. Individual cigars are slated to retail starting at $3.25 each and $49.00 per bundle.
The Fratello Camo Bundles are produced at the La Aurora Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
Conceptualized 20 years ago when Don Rafael, manager of the small store next to my home, brought me to watch a torcedor (cigar roller) perform his art. The torcedor finished the cigar, handed it to me and said "Kid, welcome to the true gentleman's club"...
