Cigars with cello or without cello: What’s the dif’?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A: You are correct sir! When you see “(Cello)” in the listing, that means the cigars come wrapped in cellophane wrappers like most premium cigars. The other selection, also referred to as “Cabinet Selection,” is one in which the cigars are presented without cello so they can be placed right into your humidor. Since many cigar smokers remove the cello from their cigars before placing them in their humidor, the no cello option saves them some time. On the other hand, cellos offer your cigars extra protection, especially if you travel with them and don’t have a cigar case.
