Cigar Review: Fratello Bianco III Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

Finally, after months of searching my local lounges, CIGRco sent me a Fratello Bianco! I've been looking for this cigar since discovering the Fratello brand in Q1 of 2019, so when I pulled it out of the CIGRco August box, I was super excited!

The Fratello Bianco III, which is a robusto, is wrapped in a dark Mexican San Andres wrapper. The cold draw has flavors of light, semi-sweet chocolate. The cigar is easy to light, and the draw is fantastic.

Final Thoughts:

When I started the Fratello Bianco III, I had medium-high expectations. I'd smoked several Fratellos by this point and I loved both the Fratello Navetta and the Fratello Navetta Inverso, so I hoped the Bianco would deliver the delicious goods.

And it did! The Fratello Bianco III is a great cigar, and I think it's a satisfactory replacement for the higher-priced options I just mentioned. Although it's not as premium, it does cost about 25% less. This cigar had a great draw and a decent burn. With each puff, I could get plenty of flavorful smoke.

Because I'd smoke this cigar again and I'd recommend you check it out, the Fratello Bianco III robusto earns a CigarScore 5.
