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.
Guillermo Cabrera Infante said ‘A good smoker, like a good lover, always takes their time with a cigar.’ Like a lazy afternoon of pleasurable lovemaking, you are sure to enjoy your time with this cigar.
