“Holy crap! This cigar is huge!” That was my initial thought when I first laid eyes on The Texan by Fratello. As soon as I grabbed these out of the box, I knew this cigar was special. The Fratello “The Texan” is over seven inches long with a 58 ring gauge, and it looks delicious.
After using my Select Draw Cigar Cutter to punch the end of The Texan, the cigar lit easily, it had a nice draw, and the flavors were medium and smooth.

At the end of the cigar, which is saying something, given that I enjoyed it for an entire evening, I'd say the Fratello The Texan is a good cigar. It's very reminiscent of the Fratello Fratello. The flavors are very similar to that and the Fratello Bianco.
The Texan lasted a full two and a half hours, and the price is on point. If you like Fratello's cigars, you're going to really enjoy this one. Because the flavors were good, the build quality was without issue, and because I'd smoke it again, the Fratello The Texan earns a CigarScore 4.
