Greetings, cigarians. As we enter Autumn so does the return of outdoor cigar smoking (sans the sweating). In celebration, we at Habana Port Cigar Merchants and CigarEarth.com would like to invite you to our next cigar tasting. We are happy to announce that Ruben Gonzalez of small-batch cigar company Matilde Cigars will make a special appearance at our Habana Port Baton Rouge location. Read below for details and mark your calendars for this occasion:
Matilde Cigar Tasting Event
Date: Thursday, October 30, 2014
Time: 5 to 8 pm
Location: Habana Port Cigar Merchants in Baton Rouge, LA
Ruben Gonzalez, partner of Tabacalera Matilde, will join us this evening to educate us about the cigars in his company's portfolio. Entry is complimentary yet you can participate in our event-only deals. When you buy any 4 Matilde Cigars cigars, you will receive 1 complimentary cigar. When you buy any 7 Matilde cigars, you will receive 2 free cigars. We will also have some "light fare" from Bergeron's.
With nearly 60 years of experience in the cigar industry, Jose Seijas has launched Matilde in 2014. It is the first cigar brand created by Seijas since he retired from Altadis in 2012. As general manager of their Dominican-based Tabacalera de Garcia factory, Seijas oversaw the production of 60 million cigars a year including brands like Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta. Retirement was not an option for Seijas and 2 years later, he set up a much smaller factory in La Romana intent on making cigars on a smaller scale. The Matilde Renacer is the first line for the new factory and uses a Habano Ecuador wrapper. The profile includes a rich, earthy layer with molasses and cocoa. The finish is leathery yet smooth. We hope you will join us for this special engagement.
