The Fratello Inverso is a literal inversion of the original Navetta cigar, simply reorganizing the components to craft a brand new smoking experience. To start, this cigar is beautifully constructed once you peel back the obnoxiously large labels, although not as oily as I would have expected. The multitude of flavors in this cigar are motley to say the least, but somehow from one puff to another it gives you abundance of greatness all the way to the very end. It is a bit pricey at about $12.50 each which normally for a Fratello cigar I would say it's over priced, but not this one. Navetta, Italian for “shuttle” there is no doubt this cigar is out of this world.
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"...
