SUMMARY OF CIGAR EXPERIENCE
Square pressed (also called box pressed) cigars are literally pressed into the box where the pressure from the box creates a square shape. Originating in Cuba, this practice was initially adopted to save shipping space but found to cause the cigars to burn longer and with a more consistent flavour, thereby giving the connoisseur a more enjoyable smoke.
Made from the same kind of tobacco that captivated Hemingway, Churchill and Kennedy, Sharpeville delivers the kind of smoke you want to suckle late at night in a dim speakeasy surrounded by sultry, down tempo jazz, strong whisky, seductive women and a fearless sense of adventure.
