Upmann, and Romeo y Julieta, the ever-humble José Seijas possesses a level of cigar expertise that few can approach. After a brief retirement period in 2012, Seijas returned to the industry in 2013, applying his deep knowledge and keen intuition to the launch of his brand, Matilde Cigars.

Handmade in small batches at Seijas’ La Romana factory in the Dominican Republic, Matilde cigars offer fantastic quality and character in various strengths and tasting profiles. Browse our full selection below and experience the unique pedigree of Matilde at the greatest possible value.

Matilde Oscura

W – Mexico

B – Ecuador

F – Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, U.S.A.

Strength: Full

Origin: Dominican Republic

A diverse blend with commanding strength and flavor, the Matilde Oscura gets its earthy charms from a fusion of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Pennsylvanian filler leaves under a sturdy Sumatran binder and a gorgeous Mexican San Andres wrapper leaf. Full-bodied, aromatic, and unrelentingly rich, the Matilde Oscura carries compelling tones of chocolate, leather, and espresso, along with hints of pepper and a subtle lingering sweetness in its deep and dynamic tasting profile.

Matilde Quadrata

W – Mexico

B – USA

F – USA, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua

Strength: Medium-full

Origin: Dominican Republic

Finishing a fine mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos with a Cuban-style box press, the 93-rated Matilde Quadrata sports an immaculately clean burn while oozing with complex charms. Its lively profile offers tones of wood and spices with hints of caramel and black cherry to entertain sophisticated palates.

Matilde Renacer

W – Ecuador

B – Dominican Republic

F – Dominican Republic, Nicaragua

Strength: Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

Pushing layered hearty flavors through a masterfully constructed, medium-bodied vessel, Matilde’s majestic Renacer helped to establish the brand’s reputation for incredible consistency and quality upon its release in 2014. Expertly blending Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos under a marbled Ecuadorian wrapper, the Renacer relays powerful impressions of coffee, oak, and almond with some delicious smooth cocoa on the finish.

Matilde Serena

W – Ecuador/Mexico

B – Dominican Republic

F – Dominican Republic, Nicaragua

Strength: Mellow – Medium

Origin: Dominican Republic

Presenting a duality of tasty profiles, the Matilde Serena presents a smooth and satisfying smoke in your choice of natural or maduro varieties. Expect a mellow rush of woody sweetness from the Ecuadorian Connecticut version and a depth of mocha coffee, toasty tobacco, and leather tasting notes from the Mexican San Andres-wrapped iteration – either way, you’re in for an experience that commands repeat performances.
