Cigars 101

What’s up with cigars sold in mazos?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A: Good question. Not really. Mazos are ribbon-bound “bundles” of cigars that are made in the factory prior to going into the box. From there, the next person unties the mazo and puts them into cellos. If the edition is a “Cabinet Selection” they go right into the boxes, as-is. Some online cigar stores sell cigars in mazos or “wheels” rather than boxes. Essentially, you’re getting the same thing, a box-worth of cigars, so your instinct was correct.

So,a mazo isn’t necessarily a bundle of 5 or 10?
