Last Friday the 17th of September, villa owners, residents and visitors to Casa de Campo celebrated the launch of two new cigars; the ‘Mi Dominicana’ and the ‘Sejias Signature Series.’ The celebration was held at the Casamontecristo in Altos de Chavón and attracted quiet a crowd of cigar aficionados…
As the event began at 6pm, those who arrived early were able to enjoy a drink and cigar, whilst watching a spectacular sunset over the Chavón river, whilst those who didn’t arrive quiet so early were more than happy to spend the evening enjoying the very good cigars, good company and plenty of drinks.
Mid-way through the evening Jose Seijas, master cigar blender and creator of many cigars including the new ‘Mi Dominicana’ and the ‘Sejias Signature Series’ gave a speech to the more than 100 guests, when he explained a little about the new cigars and thanked everyone for coming to the event.
The Casa Montecristo is the cigar shop and visitor centre to the Tabacalera de Garcia, the world’s largest handmade cigar factory and where the Mi Dominicana and Sejias Signature Series are made, along with many other fine Dominican cigars such as Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, H. Upmann, Don Diego, Santa Damiana, VegaFina, and Onyx amongst others. The Tabacalera de Garcia cigar factory is located just outside of Casa de Campo and is open to the public, for FREE tours, to read more about the Tabacalera de Garcia and the factory tour, click here.
