CAO has done it again. The CAO Cuban Press is the newest creation from CAO International. Each cigar in this sampler has a special squared shape where the cigars have gone through the tradtional Cuban trunk press process after the cigar were rolled.
A trunk press is constructed of wood and consists of a series of 10 shelves, each holding 25 cigars. Once the cigars are in place, the press is closed for 10-12 hours. When the clamps are released, the cigars need to be rotated with great care to avoid damage to the wrappers. The process is then repeated.
The end result is a highly pronounced boxy-square shape to the cigar
