Jose Seijas – Master Blender
Making cigars is an art that has survived centuries. In 1974 a young industrial engineer joined the industry; little did he know that he would stay working for this company for the next 38 years where he directed the implementation of many coherent changes aligned to making great quality cigars for the pleasure of the cigar lovers. Consistency in manufacturing became the mantra that kept Jose and his team steering the boat ahead to unparalleled quality.
However Jose’s dream was far to be achieved – he wanted more quality and he would not accept less than the best that was possible for each cigar made under his supervision. A major change got Jose closer to his goal – the rebirth of Matilde.
Tabacalera La Matilde was reborn in 2012 after Jose Seijas’ retirement as Master Blender and VP of Operations from Tabacalera de Garcia SAS. He saw a window of opportunity to make outstanding quality cigars on his own terms; at the same time creating a legacy he could leave behind to his family. He partnered up with the Gonzalez Bothers (Carlos & Ruben), the largest cigar distributors in the Dominican Republic, and invited his sons, Enrique and Ricardo, to join the project.
