Matilde Cigar Co. is getting ready to release its new Matilde Oscura, a cigar geared toward smokers who are looking for something bolder than the company’s debut line, Renacer.
To do this, a blend of fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and the United States is combined with a Sumatra binder and Mexican San Andrés wrapper.
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 company has not yet confirmed a release date, as Enrique Seijas told halfwheel that they are still waiting on packaging to be completed. However, it will be on display at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which kicks off Fri., July 13 in New Orleans, La.
