Round versus box-pressed Habanos 

Share This

All Habanos are round when they leave the Torcedor’s bench. However when they are placed in labelled boxes the cigars are pressed into a square shape because the box is deliberately made too small. Why? At first perhaps it was to prevent damage during shipping but, as with many aspects of the Habano world, the original thinking is lost in time. Perhaps it was simply a fashion in days gone by. 
In some brands most of the vitolas are box-pressed, in others none are. The present trend is for round Habanos, but the choice of shape is entirely yours.
