The Fratello Boxer is a unique premium handmade cigar created with aged filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and Peru, an Ecuador Sumatra binder, and a stunning reddish brown Nicaragua Habano wrapper. The result of this impeccable blending is a smoke with medium to full body notes of pepper, earth, and spice that meld into a luxurious creamy texture. Presented in attractive wooden cabinets of 20.
The blend features tobaccos from three countries. One thing worth noting is the Peruvian component in the filler. There is also Nicaraguan tobacco in the wrapper as well as in the filler. The binder is Ecuadrian Sumatra.
On Episode 124 of Stogie Geeks, De Frias explained what was done different with the blend. In the original Fratello blend, the ligero (from Esteli Nicaragua) was placed at both ends of the cigar. With the Boxer, the ligero is present throughout the length of the cigar. Because the Boxer is box-pressed, it was necessary to remove some tobacco from the blend to prevent it from being too tight (thus cracking the wrapper), so some of the ligero that was removed.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano
Binder: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Filler: Nicaraguan, Peruvian
The Fratello Boxer is a 6 1/4 x 52 box-pressed torpedo. This is the only size using this particular blend.
The Fratello Boxer’s Habano wrapper is a combination of colorado red and coffee bean color. Upon closer examination, some darker marbling can be seen. For this particular vitola, I did not find the wrapper to be oily, but on the silky side. There are a few visible wrapper seams and a few visible veins. The box press itself was firm and didn’t have any soft spots.
The band is very unique. It is primarily red with thin black trim and white font. The band is a zig-zag shape with the text “FRAT” and “ELLO” in large white font and black trim. The text “FRATELLO CIGARS” is also on the band in landscape mode – also in white text on a black background. (Cigar-Coop.com)
