While there is no new product for Matilde at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, something is quite different. Matilde and MLB Cigar Ventures opted to start their own distribution company—Seibel Distribution—and the two companies had their own booth this year.

The booth is small and towards the back. Notably, the company is near Oscar Valladares Tobacco Co. and Island Jim, where many of its brokers also work — a system that seemed to work.

Matilde Humidor

So this isn’t for sale, but like many other companies, Matilde has a special humidor it is raffling off for stores.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
