Matilde Cigar Co. has announced that its newest cigar will be produced by the relatively new Tabacalera La Isla factory.

The Matilde Limited Exposure No.1 is a 6 x 50 toro that will use a wrapper from Mexico over a binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic. It’s the first in what Matilde says will be a larger series of Limited Exposure releases, each of which will be launched in a single size and then expanded to later sizes.

While the cigars will be shown off at next month’s 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show, it won’t begin shipping until September.

The MSRP is set at $10.50 per cigar and it is limited to 250 boxes of 20 cigars.

This is the first new cigar for Matilde from Hostos Fernández Quesada’s Tabacalera La Isla factory, which opened in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic late last year.

Update (June 22, 2021) — This story incorrectly stated the box counts as 10 cigars, it is in fact 20 cigars per box.
