Just about three months after the announcement of the Matilde Oscura, the cigar is on its way to retailers. Earlier, Enrique Seijas told halfwheel that the first round of shipments was destined to leave the company’s warehouse this week and now a post on Instagram confirms just that.
Created to be bolder than the company’s original Renacer line, the Matilde Oscura uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Sumatra binder with fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Pennsylvania in the U.S. It’s being released in three sizes, a Corona (5 1/2 x 44, $7.50), Robusto (5 1/4 x 50, $8) and Toro Bravo (6 1/2 x 54, $8.50), all coming in 20-count boxes.
The Matilde Oscura was also on display at the company’s booth at this year’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
In the U.S., Matilde Cigar Co. is distributed by Quesada Cigars.
