Matilde Cigar Tasting Event

Time: 5 to 8 pm
Location: Habana Port Cigar Merchants in Baton Rouge, LA


Event Details
Ruben Gonzalez, partner of Tabacalera Matilde, will join us this evening to educate us about the cigars in his company's portfolio. Entry is complimentary yet you can participate in our event-only deals. When you buy any 4 Matilde Cigars cigars, you will receive 1 complimentary cigar. When you buy any 7 Matilde cigars, you will receive 2 free cigars. We will also have some "light fare" from Bergeron's.

Matilde Background
With nearly 60 years of experience in the cigar industry, Jose Seijas has launched Matilde in 2014. It is the first cigar brand created by Seijas since he retired from Altadis in 2012. As general manager of their Dominican-based Tabacalera de Garcia factory, Seijas oversaw the production of 60 million cigars a year including brands like Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta. Retirement was not an option for Seijas and 2 years later, he set up a much smaller factory in La Romana intent on making cigars on a smaller scale. The Matilde Renacer is the first line for the new factory and uses a Habano Ecuador wrapper. The profile includes a rich, earthy layer with molasses and cocoa. The finish is leathery yet smooth. We hope you will join us for this special engagement.

Until the next post, siempre fumando,
Habana Port
