While the binder and filler tobaccos for each Fratello DMV are the same, each cigar will be wrapped in a different cover leaf.

For the second straight year, Fratello Cigars is paying homage to the Washington D.C. metro area and Delaware with a quartet of limited-edition smokes. According to brand owner Omar de Frias, he opted to create a tribute line because the first retailer to carry his cigars was located in Maryland and his headquarters are in Virginia.

Similar to last year’s release, each region—Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Delaware—will get their own unique size of Fratello DMV. De Frias, though, is going one step further this year by giving each area its own blend, too.

While the binder and filler tobaccos for each Fratello DMV are the same, with an Ecuadoran binder and a filler mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, each DMV will be wrapped in a different cover leaf.

Delaware will receive a 5 inch by 47 ring gauge cigar enrobed in Brazilian Arapiraca leaf that will retail for $9.95. The Washington D.C. release (5 by 50) will be covered in Habano leaf from Ecuador and costs $10.95. Virginia’s limited-edition smoke (5 by 54) will be covered in Corojo from Ecuador and retail for $11.95, while the Maryland DMV (5 by 58) will be covered in Mexican San Andrés wrapper and cost $11.95.

Each region’s cigar will come packed in 20-count boxes, and only 150 boxes of each will be released. The cigars, which were made at the La Aurora factory in the Dominican Republic, will begin shipping on December 1.
