    Smoked a Carlos Torano Exodus 1959 50 Years tonight, a bombed cigar from the Brain (thanks Ian!). I'd smoked the other lines of the Exodus 1959 and really enjoyed them but hadn't had the 50 years yet so I was really looking forward to it. Prelight: Cut the cigar with a Cuban Crafters...

    Does anyone have photos or links to pressed Meerschaum pipes? I am interested in seeing what they look like v. real, mined Meer.

    I read on here somewhere that pressed Meer is more resilient to ghosting. True or not? If so I was thinking about trying to find a pressed Meer for the sole purpose of smoking Aromatics out of. So one type of aromatic doesn't impart too much flavor on another. Is this just a silly idea? If not...

    I picked up an Oliva G yesterday that was "box pressed". It was a GREAT smoke for me! I'm curious about the shape, is it just a novelty or is there some reason for it? Mark

    Purchased these on impulse. Good looking stick,very pretty woman on the band! :) It snipped nice..felt soft,but not mushy. The light was somewhat uneven,but settled into a nice smooth burn. Flavors of leather,wood and..molasses!! First cigar I have has this sensation with. Nice,medium...

    The cigar looks great, with the great box pressed shape. Wrapper had some marks on it and some lareger veins, so I can't give it a 10. It started... Read the full review here: Oliva Serie G Presidente Maduro Cigar Review - A Tasty Big, Box Pressed Maduro

    Why? I myself prefer them, but I'm not sure what it is about them that changes anything. I find that it makes the draw much easier, but maybe I'm full of it. Any opinions?

    Quite some time ago after being a cigar smoker for a while I had tried my first box pressed cigar, it was a Rockey Patel Box Pressed Vintage. Back then I felt it was more a gimmick. After all this time I am now finding I am preferring box pressed cigars. I have found that the draw on nearly all...

    OK so really not intentional but sure enough the cooler is full and I do mean full. The foot of the cigar was resting on lip of the cooler and the lid pressed right down on it. I found it tonight when I was rearranging. It used to be about a 48-50 rg now pressed to about a 1/4" rectangular...

    Seeing if anyone else has experienced some bad burn on the CAO Italia box Press??? My last 2 have burned lop sided and wanted to see if I am the only unlucky one???
  18. General Cigar Discussion
    Do you like them at all? Do you prefer them over round sticks? Does it affect the flavor? Does it affect the burn?
  19. Cigar Questions
    What are the advantages/disadvantages of box pressed cigars. For example, why would someone buy a box pressed cigar rather than a round cigar and vice versa? Thanks!
