Matilde Cigars is a premium cigar brand known for its rich, complex flavor profiles and its commitment to traditional cigar-making techniques. Founded in 1876 by Simeon Mencia in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic, the brand quickly gained a reputation for crafting exceptional cigars that were enjoyed by cigar enthusiasts worldwide. However, the brand faced challenges and eventually ceased production in the early 1900s. In 2013, José Seijas, a legendary master blender with extensive experience in the cigar industry, revived Matilde Cigars. Seijas, who had previously overseen the production of iconic brands like Montecristo, H. Upmann, and Romeo y Julieta, was passionate about restoring Matilde's legacy and producing cigars that would once again captivate cigar aficionados.
