Fratello Navetta

While one may not always associate cigars with outer space, the Fratello Navetta is intending to change all that. Omar de Frias spent 12 years working for NASA, during which he eventually blossomed his love for cigars into his own company. Once he felt his new endeavor needed his attention full-time, de Frias stepped away from NASA to focus on Fratello. The Navetta, Italian for 'shuttle', is a cigar that pays homage to his former career. Featuring four sizes, each of which named after a NASA space shuttle, the Fratello Navetta uses an Ecuadorian Oscuro wrapper on top of a Dominican binder and Nicaraguan filler to embark your palate on an otherworldly experience it will never forget.

About: Fratello Navetta 60 Enterprise 6" * 60
When a NASA employee, who is drawing a six-figure salary, walks away from his job to pursue his one true passion, I take notice. Especially, when that passion is cigars. Luckily for me, Omar de Frias, cigar crafter and founder of Fratello Cigars did just that! For my staff pick, I chose the Fratello Navetta Enterprise. It’s hefty 6” x 60 ring size instantly told me that I was going to be in for a bumpy ride. I fastened my seatbelt and hit the ignition switch on my lighter. The Navetta Enterprise has a nice solid construction. Its dark Ecuadorian wrapper was a little bit veiny, but it did not affect the smoke. A pre-lit sniff revealed a strong natural tobacco scent. Once lit, the Enterprise boldly transported me to a wonderful world of flavor and aroma. Throughout the first third, I mostly tasted the tobacco, but a little bit of sweetness and cedar started to introduce itself in the second third. In the final third, the tobacco flavor stayed right on course without wavering while subtle notes of cocoa and nuts introduced itself. The burn was razor sharp and the ash was mostly white. Having a Nicaraguan filler added to the Enterprise’s strength and gave it a spicy edge. Strength wise, the Navetta Enterprise had all its thrusters on. It was a good thing I had had a hearty dinner before burning this big stick. However, the strength did not overpower the flavor making it a well-balanced stick. I would recommend the Fratello Navetta Enterprise to a veteran cigar smoker because of its strength and flavor.

Super great Desert like flavors.
About: Fratello Navetta The Boxer Atlantis 6"1/4 * 52
This is a great-looking stick, mid-chocolate wapper with no veins, beautiful packaging fwiw. The first half was phenomenal, light spicy chocolate cupcake character. Turned a bit bitter in the 2nd half and lost some of the allure. Have a 2nd one aging to see how it goes with some humidor time. I found the Ashton Aged Maduro to be a smoother, more consistent stick for about the same price, in recent tasting.
