Matilde Cigar Co. Ships Oscura


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.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
