What are “box-pressed” cigars?
“Box-pressed” or “square-pressed” cigars are cigars are literally “pressed” into their factory box, whereby the pressure from the box creates a square shape. Originating in Cuba, this was done to save shipping space. As a result, the process causes the cigars to burn longer and with a more consistent flavor, giving the smoker a more enjoyable smoke.
Square-pressed and “factory pressed” cigars are also made by using molds.
Good examples of box-pressed cigars are Aspira, Padron Anniversary, Rocky Patel Vintage, CAO Cuban Press selections, La Flor Dominicana Factory Press, and Sancho Panza, to name a few.
