If you’re a fan of the Camacho Connecticut line, this is a nice twist on an excellent cigar. The Camacho Connecticut Box Pressed cigar is, as you’d expect, box-pressed. This means that, instead of the familiar round edge shape you’re used to with standard cigars, this one is square shaped.
How does a box pressed BXP get that way? Well, once they’re in their factory box, they’re carefully pressed down. Instead of resting in round rows, they’re pushed down gently until they conform to the shape of the box (and pressing implement itself). The result is cigars that look a little like 2x2 wood boards.
Why would a cigar company do such a thing? Originally, it was a way for cuban cigar companies to save on shipping space and streamline costs. But as smokers caught on, it became a bit of a preference for those who found that box-pressed sticks like the Camacho Connecticut BXP cigar had some interesting qualities. For starters, a Camacho BXP burns longer. The pressing action tends to bring everything together for a denser, slower burn when it comes time to smoke. The other welcome difference was the even consistency of flavor. Box-pressed Camacho cigars tend to offer stable flavor throughout the smoke.
The Camacho Connecticut Box Pressed Cigar is, as you’d imagine, very similar to the standard Camacho Connecticut. The Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper provides smooth mild flavor. Inside, the Corojo binder and a blend of Honduran and Dominican Aleman ligero long-fillers complete the blend. Camacho Box Pressed gives you tasty earthiness, a gentle touch of spice, and even some citrus on the finish of your smoking experience.
The Camacho Connecticut BXP cigar is a Camacho Connecticut that takes its time and is a bit more even when it comes to flavor. If that makes you curious, pick up some of these great cigars and try them for yourself!
