Jose Seijas is a true cigar-man, with over 40 years of experience in the cigar industry, after retiring, he set up a much smaller factory called Tabacalera Matilde in La Romana, Dominican Republic with his family. The intent is to make cigars on a smaller boutique scale under the brand name Matilde. The blend is comprised of primarily Dominican tobacco fillers and binder with a hint of Nicaraguan tobacco, covered in a rich Ecuadoran Habano wrapper. Seijas is now fortunate to have complete control of the manufacturing process, with his years of experience and acquired knowledge using the finest techniques to produce his cigars. A single leaf is used from foot to head and the cigar is also capped from a single leaf. This method not only creates a beautiful end product but also improves the consistency of the burn. The cigars are then aged an additional 90 days after rolling to bring out the blends richness and flavor. Seijas even goes a step further, insisting on hiring cigar rollers who smoke cigars, a move he thinks makes for a superior end product. So here’s your chance to try this medium to full bodied boutique cigar from a cigar legend, a man that is one of the most passionate cigar guys in the industry.
